Young or old, now is the time to consider getting an orthodontic evaluation and, if needed, start your treatment. Many children should start between the ages of 10 and 12, if a bad bite or unaesthetic problem has been diagnosed. Sometimes, even earlier treatment is advisable, as early as ages 2 or 3.
Many specialists around the world are advocating earlier and earlier treatment of malocclusion (messed up bite). In this way, later in life, a serious and complicated problem requiring surgery can be avoided.
Speaking of later in life… Are you an adult and not sure you need orthodontics? The answer is, “If you think you need orthodontics, you probably do.” And today, you may even have a choice of braces or invisible aligners. Ultimately, an orthodontic evaluation, whether early or later in life, will ensure the “right time” is selected for you.
