Orthodontics for All Ages
Orthodontics is commonly associated with adolescents, usually between the ages of 10 and 14. At this age, it is common for braces to be worn. While this is a common age to undergo orthodontic treatment, we can provide orthodontics for patients of all ages.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that your child have an orthodontic evaluation by the age of 7. At this age, the adult teeth have begun developing below the gums, and some may have even begun to erupt. It is at this age that we can detect the presence of, or predict the likelihood of, many different types of orthodontic issues. In some cases, we can provide early treatment to lessen the severity of treatment later on. We may even be able to help avoid the need for later treatments altogether.
The adolescent years are some of the best to undergo orthodontic treatment, particularly with braces. During this time, all of the adult teeth have erupted, but the jaw is still developing and therefore malleable. This makes treatment with braces much easier. This age is also ideal because many other children in the same age group are also undergoing treatment, so your child will not be alone.
While common in the adolescent years, adults can undergo orthodontic treatment as well. Perhaps you were unable to afford treatment as a child, or you have experienced an orthodontic relapse. Whatever the reason, braces, and other orthodontic treatments can help you to achieve a beautiful, healthy smile.
