It is recommended that the first visit to an orthodontist takes place at 6 or 7 years because at that age the first permanent molar has erupted, so that you can diagnose if there is a problem and correct it early. Like the oral habits to break that modify the occlusion being corrected early may avoid problems later. There are cases where it is important to correct the bone problem before the first permanent teeth appear.

The orthodontist will diagnose if there are problems of growth of the jaw or teeth to erupt, as some teeth are still present.
