Pediatric dentist will be able to determine early on around age 7-11, if a complete orthodontist exam is needed. We provide orthodontic referrals with great confidence to a nearby orthodontist in the Pearland and Houston areas.
This type of exam may reveal that your child’s bite is fine, or the orthodontist may identify a developing problem be observerd over the next 6 months. If treatment is needed, parents can plan with the orthodontis for treatment at the appropriate time.
