If you have a child who will most likely need braces, then it’s best to consider the timing. Little did you know, there are good and great times to align the smile. Our orthodontist, Dr. Dipak Chudasama, wants your child to begin orthodontic treatment at the great time, and that’s in the adolescent years.

The first reason why this is the case is because all of your child’s permanent teeth have grown into place but the jawbone and mouth are still developing. Because they are still developing, it makes it easier to shift and move the teeth. The jawbone will change with the associated pressure and will make the treatment easy, simple, and possibly even faster.

The second reason is because braces are cool in the adolescent years. This means you won’t likely need to deal with a whiny or self-conscious teen when they are aligning their smile. Many kids their age have braces, so they might even feel like they fit in if they have this appliance!
