Dr. Joseph Porter and other orthodontic specialists recommend that children visit an orthodontist around the age of seven to determine if they need orthodontic treatment. At this age, the jawbone and other areas of the mouth are still developing, which makes it easier to correct any current problems or prevent future problems from occurring. With early orthodontic treatment in Lafayette, Louisiana, from Theriot Family Dental Care, your child can enjoy a lifetime of healthy and happy smiles! We welcome you to call us today at 337-984-3408 to schedule your child’s orthodontic consultation.
