The American Association of Orthodontists highly recommends kids to be checked by an orthodontist as early as age 7. Orthodontists might be able to diagnose and treat a patient if they have any malocclusion. On a side note, it is very common to have crowded teeth as early as age 8, but an expander treatment can help the patient to resolve crowding, so please consult with an orthodontist.
