Children’s Orthodontics in Salisbury and Easton, MD
The Brace Place and The American Association of Orthodontists realize the countless benefits of children visiting an orthodontist in the earlier stages of their life. This is why the American Association of Orthodontists recommends that your child’s first visit to the orthodontist be at age seven. If early treatment is not recommended, we will monitor your child’s growth patterns and focus on the proper time to employ braces or orthodontics. This monitoring service is completely complimentary.

How Will Your Child Benefit?
Receiving early treatment as a child can prevent the need for braces and orthodontics as an adult, reducing the chances of needing extractions and even surgery to correct common conditions. Most parents who bring their child to our orthodontic offices for an early evaluation leave the office again happy to know that orthodontic treatment can wait – or won’t be needed at all. We firmly believe that early treatment should only be used when it is truly essential, and our orthodontists will not recommend braces for a child when simpler treatment can produce the same results.
