Though there is no certain time period to start orthodontic treatment, there are definitely ages where orthodontic treatment works best.
Children as well as adults can achieve orthodontic success through traditional braces, clear aligners, or another type of appliance.
In a perfect world, all children would see an orthodontist for an evaluation at or around the age of seven. This does not necessarily mean that children need braces or an orthodontic appliance at this young age. It simply means an early-age orthodontic screening can help determine the optimal time for beginning treatment.
If your child is over the age of seven, or if you are an adult who needs braces, it’s never too late to schedule an initial consultation with an your dentist. Many children do not see us for the first time until they are teenagers.
As an adult, is it too late to start my orthodontic treatment?
No! Adults are also applicable to orthodontic treatment and it is never too late.
It’s not uncommon for adults to want braces – even though they may have had braces when they were young. When teeth are not maintained with a retainer, they can gradually shift out of alignment. This is not an uncommon problem, and can often be fixed with Invisalign (clear aligners) for a short duration.
