While it’s important to be screened as early as age 7, between the ages of 11 and 15 is the most ideal time to start orthodontic treatment. By 12, most if not all the permanent teeth have erupted. Patients in this age range commonly have friends in braces, making the process familiar. In fact, many of our adolescent patients come in wanting braces, thinking they are actually kind of cool! Our goal is to keep the “braces are cool” philosophy going throughout treatment!
