Brunel Dental Practice

When Should My Child Have Braces?

As soon as your child’s permanent teeth come through it’s advisable to get their teeth assessed by the dentist to see if any orthodontic work is required:

– Early assessment of teeth alignment can identify and treat any problems, saving extensive treatment being required later on in life.

– Some orthodontic correction can wait until children are teenagers.

– The average treatment time needed to fix most children’s teeth is just under two years.

The first orthodontist visit should be at age 7, and is usually simple and painless for children, and will involve an exam and some questions, including x-rays.
