Early Treatment

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends
that young children have their first orthodontic evaluation
around age 7. Even kids who aren’t ready for treatment
will receive an appointment every 6 months to check their
growth and make sure that, if treatment is needed, they’ll
get started at the optimal time.

Teen Treatment

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 treated. These problems will hardly ever correct
themselves, so this is when most parents decide to seek
orthodontic treatment. For most teens, braces are a right
of passage; something they share with other kids their
age. Many can hardly wait until they can get their braces
on – and that’s good for a number of reasons. While it’s
never too late for orthodontic treatment, having braces or
Invisalign as a teen lets us take advantage of the natural
growth happening during these important developmental
years. Their higher metabolism helps us shape the bite
and teeth correctly, minimizes discomfort and helps us
shorten overall treatment times in many cases.
