The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that the initial orthodontic evaluation should occur at the first sign of orthodontic problems or no later than age 7. Why so young? Early evaluation provides both timely detection of problems and greater opportunity for more effective treatment.
Braces aren't just for kids anymore! Orthodontic treatment at later stages in life can dramatically improve your personal appearance and self-esteem, and improving the health of your teeth and gums is equally important.
