Braces and Orthodontics Studies About Pros, Cons of Childhood Orthodontic Treatment

Braces and orthodontics are mainly associated with teens or adults looking to correct teeth and jaw misalignment for personal and professional reasons. But, for many individuals the best time to seek orthodontic treatment isn't in adolescence or adulthood, but in childhood.


Early childhood orthodontic treatment allows parents to circumvent their child's tooth misalignments before they develop or at least lessen the severity of misalignments. According to Dentists' studies, the optimal age for an orthodontic evaluation is at the age of seven. This is the general age where the first molars and incisors surface, which allows orthodontists to determine if there will be misalignments.
