Bobak Orthodontics

Orthodontics for Children

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends all children get a check-up with an orthodontic specialist no later than age 7.

Orthodontic Treatment for KIDS

While there is no exact age for children to begin orthodontic treatment, the American Association of Orthodontists recommends visiting the children orthodontist around age seven. By this age, most children have a mix of baby teeth and adult teeth, making it easier for Dr. Bobak to diagnose and correct tooth and jaw problems sooner making treatment less complicated and invasive. Visits at this age allow Dr. Bobak to:
