  • What Is a Good Age To Get Braces?

    What is a good age to get braces? Generally, from around age eight to adults of all ages, braces remain one of the best orthodontic treatments. 

    Sometimes, people have a preconception that braces are only for people of a certain age. However, that’s not true. Today, braces are advanced, more discreet, affordable, and efficient. Also, trends indicate that more adults than ever are getting started and getting their dream smiles today. 

    With treatment, you can significantly improve your health as you improve your appearance. Thus, braces can address long-standing dental issues for adults or help kids develop a beautiful smile early in life.

    A Good Age to Get Braces

    The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that kids see an orthodontist around age seven. Sometimes, it may be earlier if a parent notices problems.

    Generally, age seven is when some permanent teeth are in place. Then, by age eight to age 14, the majority of permanent teeth are in place, so early treatment such as braces can begin if necessary.

    From the time most permanent teeth are in place throughout adulthood, it can be “a good age” to get braces. With treatment, we can correct malocclusions (misaligned bite) and improve oral health.

    Improve Your Appearance and Health

    By getting started with braces, you can dramatically improve your appearance. Often, we see big changes to one’s self-esteem and confidence. In some cases, adults who spent years ashamed to show their smiles find themselves proud to smile. As a result, treatment can impact day-to-day life and even those around you when you’re smiling.

    If you’re wondering if orthodontic treatment can help you, please see our Before & After gallery and Patient Gallery. There, you’ll see that we can dramatically transform all kinds of smiles.
