The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that every child receive an orthodontic exam by age seven. The timing of orthodontic treatment is crucial and greatly affects the treatment result. Early diagnosis and treatment by a specialist can help prevent more severe problems.
Orthodontics is not just for children. While most people tend to associate orthodontics with children, adults are also prime candidates for treatment. Approximately 25% of all orthodontic patients are adults. Advances in technology and the introduction of discrete, clear braces make the benefits of orthodontics a must for any adult.
