When To Get Treatment?                    
 

Most orthodontists recommend that treatment begins at an early stage as it is easier to correct the problems and children’s mouths are more responsive to treatment which means that they will not have to wear braces for as long as adults.  The The American Association of Orthodontists recommends the children be seen by an Orthodontic Specialist at age 7.  Nonetheless, this does not mean that adults are too old for braces.  It is quite the contrary.  Orthodontic treatment can be performed on adults of almost any age as long as the gums and teeth are in healthy condition.
