The Best Time To Get Braces
“When should I get braces?” is a question we hear a lot at Fairfield Dental Arts. We are here to help you answer that question. At Fairfield Dental Arts, we are fully trained and equipped to handle complex and minor Orthodontic needs for children.
Children who have early signs of crooked teeth, overbites, underbites and incorrect jaw position usually undergo orthodontic treatment. The best time for children to get braces is between 10 and 14 years of age. During these formative years, the mouth and teeth are still forming. Teeth are more inclined to straighten out during this time period.
The other question we hear frequently is “how long do I have to wear braces?” This is a harder question to answer. It all depends on how quickly your teeth take to align. On average, patients wear them anywhere from 18 to 30 months.
