Help your child grow healthier by taking them to the orthodontist. According to experts, parents should take their children to the dentist by age 7.

Key takeaways:

– Early detection and treatment of crowded and crooked teeth is less expensive than waiting to seek treatment after adult teeth erupt.

– Orthodontic problems like crooked teeth cause headaches, radiating jaw pain, loss of appetite, trouble chewing and poor speech.

– People with orthodontic problems are unable to clean their teeth properly, thus prone to decay.

Please, visit the dentist regularly for perfect dental health.
