for your child
Your children are precious, and so choosing an orthodontist for them is an important decision! Here at Susan O'Connell Orthodontics, we guarantee you that that we will take the very best care of your child & their smile.
Orthodontic treatment is not just about straightening teeth - it is also about aligning jaws, preserving the health of the gums and jaw joints, and correcting the aesthetics of your child's smile and facial profile.
Generally it’s advised that children see a Specialist Orthodontist no later than 8 years of age although most orthodontic treatment begins between the ages of 9 and 14.
Dr. O'Connell is a registered Specialist and qualified to manage all types of orthodontic issues.
Why is it important for my child to see an orthodontist at 7-8yrs?
Some of the more complex problems present themselves quite young, where early intervention can sometimes reduce the complexity of treatment so early assessment is essential to ensure these issues aren't missed!
