We, along with the American Association of Orthodontists®, recommend that your child be evaluated by our orthodontists at age 7 to determine if orthodontic treatment is needed and when it should begin. Many children receive two-phase treatment to help ensure that they grow and develop properly and that they are receiving all the care they need to enjoy straight, healthy teeth and beautiful smiles in the future. We welcome you to call Manhattan Family Orthodontics to learn more about two-phase treatment in New York City, New York, and make an appointment with Dr. Kris Togias and associates.
