FAQS

Q: At what age should my kiddo be seen by an orthodontist?

The American Academy of Orthodontics recommends age 7 for the first ortho checkup. This is when the first adult teeth begin to erupt and jaw issues can become apparent. Proactively seeing an orthodontist can prevent future issues and more extensive treatment down the road. While we do not recommend treatment for all young children, we monitor your child in our complimentary growth guidance program to ensure we don’t miss anything! We want to be ready for treatment at the exact right time for your kiddo!

Q: Why an orthodontist and not my general dentist?

Orthodontists are dental specialists who have two to three years of additional training post dental school to be able to correctly diagnose and treat dental and skeletal irregularities. Dr. Shannon has provided orthodontic treatment to thousands of patients and has mastered his craft. Given the high level of specialization necessary to provide proper treatment, we caution against going to a general dentist who only does a few orthodontic cases per year.
