The American Association of Orthodontists recommends children are seen by age 7

The primary benefit of having an orthodontic evaluation by an orthodontist, by age 7, is the opportunity to monitor development of your child’s teeth.  This allows Dr. John to maximize growth and eruption patterns and treatment options for your child.

Awareness and a proactive approach today leads to increased treatment options and a more optimal outcome for tomorrow

When you bring your child to Dr. John, you can be confident that he makes the same treatment recommendations for your child as he does for his own children.

Hear what real Warford Orthodontics parents
are saying about their kid’s treatment


I have had two children go through orthodontic treatment with Warford Orthodontics, and I can not find enough good things to say. They are knowledgeable, and take the time to explain everything to the Patient and family. They were flexible with appointment times, and they helped with finding a payment plan that worked for us. I highly recommend getting orthodontic services with them!

The staff provided our family with comfortable waiting areas and essentially no wait time. They were very accommodating of our needs and very clear and concise with treatment plans and financial arrangements.

My kids look forward to their visits!

Its hard to express how amazing it is to watch your smile transform. Being a "30-something" professional, I thought my time for dental correction (i.e. braces) had passed, but working with Warford Orthodontics changed all that. I am so impressed with the staff, the doctor and the orthodontic technology that they have made available to our community.

They have the best staff all around. From the minute you walk in till you leave from your appointment they make you feel welcome and appreciated. We drive 99 miles for my son to get the best service for his braces. I was a little nervous for my son when they told me he had to get braces, but they made it very comfortable for him and that made me feel better. Thanks for all you do.

Warford is amazing! From an excellent atmosphere to excellent staff. I feel welcome and comfortable every time I come in! The flexibility with scheduling and the ortho process is also awesome. They are very understanding when things come up last minute. They are also great with there payment options which is very hard to find sometimes! I came in starting with Invisalign and Dr. John switched me to braces no problem when I asked. Glad I went to them !!!

We really enjoy going to Warford. After having another consult at another place we weren't satisfied . Then someone referred us here and we weren't more happier . They are happy, friendly, they explained everything to us and they most of all they worked with us financially! They have done wonders with my daughters teeth and we are so excited!

Answers to Common Questions Regarding Children and Their Teeth


My child’s baby teeth are crowded. Is that OK?

No. This could be an early sign of something an orthodontist should monitor. You may wish to schedule your child for a check-up.


My child’s front teeth stick out. Should we see an orthodontist?

Yes. Protrusive front teeth may be the outward sign of a problem with the positions of the jaws, or positions of the teeth, even if your child has baby teeth. Protrusive upper front teeth are more likely to be broken at play or in an accident.


Transition from baby teeth to permanent teeth

Around age 6 children will begin to lose baby teeth and their first permanent molars emerge.

While you don’t see them, permanent teeth begin to form before birth. At around age 13, most children have 28 of their permanent teeth and the third molars, or “wisdom teeth,” appear in the late teen years, or early 20s and often cause some pain or other dental issues.

Sometimes a child may have too few permanent teeth and this is called “congenitally missing teeth.” The opposite can occur and a child may have extra teeth, or “supernumerary teeth.” Both conditions happen often can be diagnosed using a panoramic x-ray from Warford Orthodontics. We can help to successfully manage these problems.
