The most common time for orthodontic treatment is between the ages of 11 and 13. Most, if not all, of the permanent teeth have erupted and are in place, and crooked teeth, gaps and bad bites can easily be detected. These problems will hardly ever correct themselves, so it is at this age when most parents decide to seek orthodontic treatment.
In addition, children at this age are still growing, which can help shorten overall treatment time.
Call our office for an initial examination at no charge. We will be able to determine the best time for treatment and outline the treatment plan, the anticipated treatment duration, and the approximate cost of treatment.
