We recommend that children visit our office by age seven. Our experienced and friendly orthodontist, Dr. Robert Hann or Dr. Kimsey Anderson, will advise whether orthodontic treatment is required and when the best time is to treat your child. Most orthodontic treatment begins between the ages of nine and 14. At Straightline Orthodontics, we recommend early treatment so that our orthodontists can guide the growth of the jaw and direct incoming permanent teeth into the correct positions.
By treating your child early, we can avoid or simplify future orthodontic treatment. Orthodontic problems tend to worsen over time, so we encourage you to visit us to ensure that your child receives the best orthodontic care possible! Our treatments allow your child to continue playing sports, playing musical instruments, and enjoying the other activities they love without interruption. We invite you to call our office today at (505) 884-5610 to learn more about children’s orthodontics in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and to schedule an appointment. We look forward to caring for you and your family!
