We receive a lot of questions from parents about when is the right time to visit the orthodontist.  The answer is very specific for your child, so if you are one of our patients, we can discuss this specifically at your next appointment.  As a general rule, many children can wait until all permanent teeth have come in before beginning orthodontic therapy.  This usually occurs at around 10 to 13 years of age.

As summer approaches, many parents will want to make sure to keep their kids hydrated as they engage in sports and other outdoor activities.  We want to remind you that although it’s tempting to load your kid up on juice during the summer months, juice should only be given to your child in moderation.  Too much juice, even 100% fruit juice, can aggregate tooth decay in otherwise healthy teeth.
