There are two types of orthodontic appliances: fixed or removable. Treatment that begins while a child is growing helps produce optimal results. As a result, Dr. Plant or Dr. Tour recommends an orthodontic evaluation between the ages of 7 and 11. By then, they have a mix of primary (baby) teeth and their
permanent (adult) teeth. Dr. Plant or Dr. Tour can spot problems with emerging teeth and jaw growth early on, while the primary teeth are present. That’s why regular dental examinations are important.
