Did you know that Orthodontics play a huge role in young children’s health, appearance and self-confidence? The American Association of Orthodontics recommends that an orthodontist examine a child’s teeth by the time they are 7 years old, even while baby teeth are still in the mouth. Dr. Lyons can pinpoint underlying problems and start correcting them to avoid potential problems for future adult teeth. By age 7, enough permanent teeth have emerged for us to evaluate relationships developing between teeth, jaw, and bite and make sure all will continue to develop as they should. Whether we determine that your child does or does not need orthodontic treatment, you will get the peace of mind of knowing what your options are. Consultations are complimentary and can be done virtually or in the office.
