Best age to get braces?
More than three million American teenagers are with braces. Four out of five orthodontic patients are children. Braces have been a source of relief for many individuals and with time, there have been improvements in the technology. At White Brown Smiles Greenville SC, our friendly and experienced staff will provided a welcoming experience for all ages.
In the past braces were typically given during adolescent years, between the age of 13-19. Recent advances in technology have made it possible to treat younger children as early as age 7 or 8. At this age, their jaw and teeth are still growing into place, making alignment issues easier to address. This is why it’s very important to have your child’s teeth checked and maintained at an early age.
The Advantages of Early Intervention:
- Avoiding tooth extractions
- Maintaining health tooth
- Potentially minimizing the need for braces
- Potentially shortening the length of treatment, if required
It’s Never too late
Braces have become more common today at a younger age. However, the right treatment age varies based on your child’s unique situation and individual needs. If you are an adult and have orthodontist concerns, its not to late for you as well. Give us a call today at 864.297.6453.
