The American Association of Orthodontists recommends a visit as early as 7 years old. During this visit, your child’s oral condition will be verified to ensure that it is suitable for the later venue of the permanent dentition.
You will be happy to learn that in certain situations, your child could benefit from a simple orthodontic correction to later facilitate the development of his dentition. The goal of this preventive measure is to create a favourable environment for the future upcoming changes.
At this age, it is common however, that only follow-up consultations will be proposed to monitor the personalized dental eruption.
For recommendations to facilitate the development and the emergence of your children’s permanent dentition, visit orthodontists Dr. Audrey Drapeau and Dr. Jocelyn Talbot for a preventive approach consultation.

Orthodontics alone has its limits. Sometimes, it is better to combine orthodontic care and repositioning jaw surgery in order to optimize the functional correction and facial esthetics.
Also, in presence of impacted teeth (canines or wisdom teeth) or teeth replacement with implants, the expertise of an oral surgeon could be a wise choice.
At our clinic, we have the privilege of collaborating closely since 1996 with Dr Jean Poirier, experienced oral and maxillofacial surgeon.
