Adolescent Treatment

When To Get Braces?

Between the ages of 11 and 14 is the most common time for orthodontic treatment, and good reason. By age 12, most if not all, permanent teeth have erupted and settled into place, making it easier to identify crooked teeth, gaps, and misalignments. These problems will hardly ever correct themselves, so this is when most parents decide to seek orthodontic treatment.

Each individual grows at their own pace. For this reason, Drs. Sam and Cindy will evaluate each child’s unique presentation and develop the orthodontic plan that best addresses each individual needs. Some orthodontic treatments require patients to undergo growth during the treatment process. Therefore, the adolescent years provide a vital opportunity to utilize the natural growth during this period.
