What Is The Best Age for Orthodontic Treatment?

Orthodontic is a way of aligning or moving your teeth to improve their appearance, and function. When teeth are not aligned properly, it can put stress on the jaw muscles which leads to jaw and joint complications and sometimes cause a headache. Our Orthodontist will help in maintaining the long-term strength of your teeth, and jawbone by balancing pressure on your teeth.

What is Orthodontic Treatment?

Orthodontic treatment is a branch of dentistry that deals in correcting teeth and jaw that are placed improperly. Teeth that are crooked and don't fit together are harder to keep clean and are at risk of being lost early due to tooth decay and periodontal disease.

What's The Best Age for Braces?

When parents notice that their kids might need an Orthodontic Treatment, they don't know what's the best age to take them to an Orthodontist in Fremont. Our Orthodontist recommends starting orthodontic treatment between the ages of 10 to 14 years old. Most of the orthodontist believes that this is the optimal age range for orthodontic treatment.

What Is The Best Time to Start an Orthodontic Treatment?

The answer to this is It Depends! Several factors need to be considered before deciding to start Orthodontic Treatment in Fremont. There are three stages for orthodontic treatment.

  1. Early Treatment: In early treatment, it is recommended by The American Association of Orthodontist that children can receive orthodontic treatment by the age of 7. Early treatment is referred to as Phase I. This early treatment provides timely detection of problems and greater opportunity for effective treatment.
  2. Teen Treatment: Teens typically start there orthodontic treatment between the age of 12 to 16 once their permanent teeth have erupted. This teen treatment is referred to as Phase II. If they had received early treatment our Dentist in Fremont will position all the permanent teeth to maximize their appearance and function.
  3. Adult Treatment: An Orthodontic Treatment in Fremont during adulthood can dramatically improve your appearance and confidence.

How to Know If Your Child Needs Orthodontic?

According to the American Association of Orthodontists, it is recommended that children receive their orthodontic screening no later than the age of seven. Because by this age it will be easy to identify if a child has any malocclusions. The earlier the orthodontic evaluation the quicker we can determine if braces are required and what type of treatment plan is best.

Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment:

There are many benefits of orthodontic treatment. The most famous reason is for self-esteem and confidence that comes from looking at one's best. The positive side effects of orthodontics include:

  1. Improved ability to chew food
  2. Easy to brush, clean, and floss teeth
  3. Reduced cavities and periodontal disease
  4. Alleviation of speech impairment

For Adults, the Best Age for Orthodontic Treatment is "As Soon As Possible"
