What is the Right Age For Braces?

For a parent whose child does not have perfectly aligned teeth, which unfortunately is many of us.

The American Academy of Orthodontics recommends that children receive an orthodontics screening somewhere between the ages of two and seven. However, this age is too early to install braces. The screening is only so the orthodontist can assess how your child's teeth and jaw are developing, and identify potential problems. Based on the results, the orthodontist will be able to make an informed recommendation on whether your child will need braces in the future.

Most children who need braces will receive them between the ages of nine and thirteen. This is the ideal age, since the jaw is strong enough to support braces, but still developing, so the braces can do their work as the child grows. After fourteen, the pace of development slows and it becomes more difficult to make significant changes in alignment through braces.
