Are you thinking about orthodontic treatment for you or a loved one? If so, you might be asking yourself when would be the best time to visit an orthodontist. Well, Dr. Amy Richter and our orthodontic team are happy to help you by giving you the information and answers you’re looking for.

First, we want to encourage you to visit an orthodontist whenever you have questions or concerns about the alignment of your teeth or the functionality of your bite. It’s especially important to visit Dr. Amy Richter when you have a hard time biting, chewing, or speaking or when one, two, or more of your teeth are crooked or protruding from your mouth. At this time, it’s best to come into our office.

It’s recommended to take your child in for an orthodontic examination when they are 7 years old, according to the American Academy of Orthodontics. This is important because your child’s smile is growing rapidly at this age. If there is a problem that can be treated early, the smile will adapt to change easier than a smile that is older. An examination at an early age is also recommended because it helps ensure proper eruption with the permanent teeth. If there are any issues, like if there isn’t enough space in the mouth for the permanent teeth, then they can be treated as soon as possible.

Now remember: Children, teens, and adults can all benefit from orthodontic treatment. So if you or a loved one suffers from a crooked, unhealthy mouth, please feel free to call Amy Richter Orthodontics in Buffalo, New York, at (716) 631-9924 and schedule an appointment. We are happy to help you achieve the top-notch smile you deserve!
