At what age should I get braces?

Posted on March 4, 2016

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends a child should visit an orthodontist by age seven.

Cardinal Orthodontics is ready to improve your smile at any time! The majority of patients are going to be best treated once most of the permanent teeth are in place. It is important to provide treatment to correct problems before jaw growth has slowed, or these problems may lead to a need for surgery or extraction of teeth. Every patient is unique, and it’s always best to be evaluated by an orthodontist if a problem is detected by parents, the family dentist, or the child’s physician.

We’re happy to provide an initial exam at no cost to help parents evaluate concerns and the best time for youth orthodontics treatment.
