What To Look For
Dr. McFarlane at Village Orthodontics in Winnipeg believes in the importance of early detection and treatment of orthodontic issues in children.
Many children may exhibit early signs of jaw problems as they grow and develop.
An orthodontist is trained to recognize an upper jaw that is growing too much or is too narrow.
Children 7 and over may be candidates for early orthodontic treatment if they are experiencing jaw development issues
