Benefits of Early Treatment

While it's never too late to create a beautiful smile, childhood is the ideal time to start orthodontic treatment.

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children receive their first orthodontic screening around age seven, when the upper permanent front teeth first erupt. At this early age, treatment may not be necessary yet, but an early evaluation will determine the best time to start. Dr. Kuperstein offers comprehensive evaluations for children of all ages, at no charge.
