Treatment can begin at any age. Children from the age of seven right up to adults even past the age of fifty (provided the bone condition allows it) can begin treatment.

However, it may be best to begin treatment for children before the arrival of all the permanent teeth, as in some cases it may avoid extractions of the permanent teeth. Many other problems are easier to correct if detected at this time, rather than waiting until all permanent teeth have erupted, and jaw growth has slowed.

Early diagnosis & timely preventive or interceptive treatment can also guide erupting teeth into a more favourable position & preserve space for the permanent teeth. It may also shorten treatment time, make it easier & may prevent the need for jaw surgery, extraction of permanent teeth or fracture of protruded incisors, advantages that are not available later.

Certain early corrective measures suggested by your Orthodontist could save your child the entire orthodontic treatment later.

It may also reduce ‘appearance consciousness’ & the emotional scarring that can occur during critical developmental years. Also as adolescents enter the sensitive teenage years, they tend to become far less receptive to treatment with braces, as one patient stated recently "I don’t want to begin college with braces".

By the age of seven, consult with a professional orthodontist to find out whether treatment is needed and when and if it should begin.

Most patients come in for treatment late simply because of lack of information & guidance. Some go through painful embarrassment silently not knowing the wealth of possibilities available to them by way of orthodontic treatment with braces.
