Children should receive their initial orthodontic examination by age 7. By this time, many permanent teeth have erupted, and the pattern of jaw growth has been established, making it easier for our orthodontists to determine if treatment is necessary, and when it should begin. This early evaluation also allows us to intervene early on when necessary, preventing future problems from developing. Give Shenandoah Valley Orthodontics a call today to make your child’s appointment with Dr. Damon DeArment, Dr. Daniel Lill, and Dr. Ashley Larson and learn more about early orthodontic treatment in Winchester and Front Royal, Virginia.
