When your child needs help for straighter, properly aligned teeth, your pediatric orthodontist in Pearland and Houston serves these needs. In young children, orthodontists call these methods of smile correction “interceptive orthodontics.” For this treatment, your child starts seeing your family orthodontist as early as age six. Because children’s teeth and jaw are still developing at this age, it is the perfect time to fix and prevent problems.
Other children wait until later ages to start seeing their pediatric orthodontist in Houston. This depends on their needs and the orthodontist’s treatment plan.
