Adolescent Treatment

When To Get Braces?

Adolescence is the most common time for orthodontic treatment. Because everyone develops at their own pace, age isn’t always the best predictor for treatment time. However, most of the permanent teeth are erupted by age 12-13 in a typical patient.  Crowding, spacing, bite issues and skeletal issues can easily be detected in the adolescent age group. Typically, these problems do not self-correct, so this is usually when most parents decide to seek orthodontic treatment.

Many children in this age range often undergo orthodontic treatment. In fact, braces have become quite popular, and teens love to fit in with their friends.  Getting braces while a patient is still growing can also ensure treatment progresses as efficiently as possible.
