Proper oral health needs to start early for the best results. At Shine Orthodontics, we understand the importance of catching orthodontic issues before they become major concerns.
Our early ortho checkups are designed to identify potential problems in children aged 7 or older in Chillicothe, Maineville, and Lebanon. By addressing these issues sooner rather than later, we can lay the foundation for a healthy and confident smile that lasts a lifetime.
The American Board of Orthodontics recommends that children get their first orthodontic checkup no later than age 7. But that does not necessarily mean that orthodontic care will begin at that age.
Your orthodontist will determine if early orthodontic treatment or intervention is needed.
The earlier treatment starts, the more likely it is for your child to have healthy teeth for their entire adult lives. However, our doctors are focused on what is best for each patient and we will only initiate treatment for children when there is a clear benefit.
