The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends that kids receive their 1st orthodontic exam by the age of 7 to screen for potential teeth and jaw problems, but that doesn't necessarily mean they'll start orthodontic treatment at age 7 or at all. Every child is different and grow at different rates. The purpose of an orthodontic evaluation is simply to determine if tour child needs or would benefit from orthodontic treatment.
