The most common age for orthodontics treatments for your kids is between 12 and 16. It’s easiest and most effective for our orthodontist to identify issues associated with bite, jaw alignment, gaps and overcrowding between these ages.
Your child may also become more aware of their appearance, which is why most teenagers tend to prefer to get treatment while some of their friends are also getting treatment. Addressing your son or daughter’s smile at the right time can be crucial to their self-confidence in the long run.
While some teens would prefer not to get traditional braces, it’s important that we do a proper exam so we can come up with a customized treatment plan that will best address the needs of your child.
