When to Start

It is never too soon or too late to start looking and feeling better!

Orthodontic treatment can lay the foundation for a beautiful smile as early as age 7 as recommended by the American Association of Orthodontists; however, our method of functional orthodontics has also proven successful for adults looking for a better smile or for a solution to a myriad of dental problems as well as head, neck, and facial pain.

The decision of when to start orthodontic treatment is best left to the expertise of an orthodontic specialist. By scheduling a complimentary initial exam at Shah Orthodontics, there is no financial obligation in letting the doctor tell you if it is the right time to begin treatment for you or your child.
