Since each patient’s orthodontic goal or problem is unique to that individual, there is no specific age that is considered the best for treatment. For children with orthodontic problems, early diagnosis and treatment by a specialist is especially important in guiding facial growth and preventing serious problems from developing. The timing of orthodontic treatment is extremely important and greatly affects the treatment results.
At Santucci Orthodontics, we provide orthodontic treatment for children, teenagers, and adults. We encourage you to use the links below to learn more about our services for these age groups:
The American Association of Orthodontics (AAO) recommends that every child get an orthodontic screening no later than age 7. Orthodontic treatment is appropriate for children as well as adults. With less noticeable braces, new treatment options and new techniques that reduce the number of orthodontic visits, the latest advances in orthodontics have significantly increased the popularity of orthodontic treatment among adults and made getting orthodontic treatment easier and more popular among teenagers. Whatever your age, our goal for each patient is to reduce treatment time, and to provide the best and most stable results.
