Right Age

What is the right age for orthodontics?

  • Our practice provides orthodontic treatment for children, adolescents and adults.  Whether you are Ten, Sixteen or Sixty the appearence and health of your teeth is an important aspect of your life.
  • Depending on the patient, almost any age is the right age. For some patients, early treatment (ages 6-10) may prevent certain problems from developing.  During these growth years, we may be able to achieve results not possible once the face and jaws have finished growing.
  • Most patients are treated after all the permanent teeth are in place, this can occur as early as age ten.
  • We treat many adults in our practice as many as 20%.  Often these people never had the benefit of orthodontic treatment as children.  It’s never to late to achieve a perfect and healthy smile.
