When is the correct time for Braces?
Generally, braces are placed around the time all of the the permanent teeth erupt, at approximately 11-12 years of age. There are particular situations where earlier treatment is indicated and some type of bite problems are best addressed earlier! If your dentist recommends an exam by the orthodontist or you have concerns of your own please contact us. We will provide a complimentary exam and treatment plan recommendation.
Braces for Adults
Thinking about getting braces it’s never too late. Adults make up nearly half of orthodontic patients hoping to finally get the perfect smile they’ve always dreamed about.
Braces have evolved considerably in the last past few years. The days of being a true “metal mouth” are over and more lightweight and cosmetically friendly options are out there.
Adults can expect to wear braces an average of 12 to 20 months.
