Braces are for both children and adults.  Children as young as 7 are suggested by the American Association of Orthodontists to get an evaluation from an orthodontist.  Some problems show up early and are best treated early while the jaws are still growing and the adult teeth have not fully erupted into place.  The types of problems best treated early are  persistent thumb or finger sucking, severe crowding, narrow jaws, chronic mouthbreathing, underbite problems, baby teeth falling out too early and severe overbite problems.  If your children have any of these issues, call Dr. Imel today to schedule a FREE initial consultation.  He will let you know if your child is ready for treatment now or will be at a later date.  Call today 815-224-2355.
