Orthodontics for Children

The Dental Specialists Turramurra can get your children on track to happy, healthy and beautiful smiles.


Making the decision to go ahead with orthodontic treatment for your children is a big one. Orthodontics for children is all about establishing healthy growth development from an early age and setting them up for a beautiful and healthy smile for life. If you are unsure if your child is ready, or suitable for orthodontic treatment, your best bet is to seek the advice of an experienced orthodontist.

There is no exact age for children to start orthodontic treatment. The Australian Society of Orthodontists and the American Association of Orthodontists, as a general rule of thumb, recommends bringing your child to see the orthodontist around the age of seven.

At this age, most children have a combination of both baby and adult teeth. This is required for your orthodontic specialist to make an informed diagnosis.
