What age groups seek orthodontic care?

There are many advancements in orthodontic care that have made it a lot easier to get that beautiful smile. Orthodontic care is not only for children, but for anyone that is unhappy with their teeth, and want a smile they can be proud of.

On average, children usually get braces between 10-14 years of age, and it is recommended that a child can see an orthodontist starting at age 7 when their permanent teeth begin to erupt. Braces are most common in teenagers, because when teeth first erupt they begin to notice crooked teeth. Visiting an orthodontist early on can allow them to evaluate any issues, and develop a customized plan for the future.

Orthodontic care can be done at any age, and we encourage all patients to meet with our team to discuss your concerns and goals. Our team will take x-rays and develop a plan that is customized to each patient’s needs.

You may be a good candidate for braces if:

  • You are unhappy with the way your smile looks or feels.
  • You have an under bite or an overbite.
  • Your teeth are crooked or misaligned.
  • Speech is affected by your teeth.
  • You had braces in the past but did not get the results you desired.
