Adolescent Treatment

When To Get Braces?

Between the ages of 11 and 15 is the most common time for orthodontic treatment, and for good reason. By 12, most, if not all, of the permanent teeth have erupted and are in place and crooked teeth, gaps, and bad bites can easily be detected. These problems will hardly ever correct themselves, so this is when most parents decide to seek orthodontic treatment.

This is also a good time for orthodontic treatment because many negative associations of braces are not present. Many children in this age range undergo orthodontic treatment, and children are very often able to be convinced to wear braces because they see their friends wearing them, too, and want to fit in.
