The Right Age for Braces

The American Association of Orthodontics recommends that an orthodontist first see a child as early as age seven and even earlier if a parent or family dentist discovers a problem. The timing of orthodontic treatment is extremely important and greatly affects the treatment result. Since no two patients are alike, there is not a specific age that is best to begin treatment.

A specialist's early diagnosis and treatment can help guide facial growth and tooth eruption and prevent more serious problems from developing. Our goal is to provide the best and most stable results possible.

Adolescents who show signs of misalignment of teeth or a dysfunctional jaw or bite are strong candidates for orthodontic care. It is very typical for adults, no matter what age, to experience misalignment of teeth. You're never too old for orthodontic care.
