The ideal time for orthodontic treatment for braces is in the teenage years. Once all the adult teeth have erupted (usually by the age of 12), patients can commence treatment with braces. Our orthodontist utilises the facial growth that is still occurring in the teenage years to achieve beautiful smiles and functional bites.
Another reason why this is a good age to commence orthodontic treatment that it is likely that patients will have friends and classmates also undergoing treatment at the same time. This makes the experience easier as they go through it together.
We can assess and advise you on the most suitable method and best timing of treatment, based on our many years of experience in treating many thousands of cases.
