What is the Best Age to Get Braces?

What is the best age to get braces? Orthodontists often get this question, so we’ll look at the answer.

The short answer: There’s not a “best age” for braces. Today, kids, teens, and adults may benefit from orthodontic treatment like braces. 

Notably, orthodontic treatment with braces or Invisalign aligns the teeth and jaws. As it creates a beautiful smile, orthodontic care also significantly improves oral health. For young people over age seven up to adults of all ages, you can get your dream smile and a big boost to self-confidence and self-esteem.

Today, more adults are getting started with braces and Invisalign and getting incredible results. It’s not too late to get started, so please, schedule a free consultation with Mill Creek Orthodontics to learn more.

The Best Age to Get Braces

According to the American Association of Orthodontists, there is not one ideal age to begin orthodontic treatment. However, getting started early is always a good idea. Thus, kids around age seven should visit an orthodontist to screen for any potential problems.

By getting started early, an orthodontist can catch problems before they worsen and require more extensive treatment later in life. Thus, we can ensure kids get the best start at a healthy, beautiful smile right from the start.

Adults Get Outstanding Results with Braces

For adults, orthodontic care works the same, very gradually moving the teeth. However, treatment may take a little longer in adults since kids’ teeth and jaws are still growing and more flexible. Nevertheless, adults get spectacular results and can improve both their appearance and health. 

As we age, dental issues tend to be more prevalent. However, orthodontic treatment like braces helps everyone maintain optimal oral health.

At Mill Creek Orthodontics, care is affordable, and you can even get started the same day as your consultation if you like. Our helpful team will help maximize any insurance benefits if you have them, but you don’t require dental insurance to get affordable braces. Today, you can even start without a down payment, and we offer pay-in-full and family discounts.

All of the staff are extremely warm and caring. Dr. Markus is highly competent but is also so down to earth. They make the whole experience a lot of fun! I’ve been impressed with how well run it is; I’ve never been kept waiting for very long. Highly recommend to anyone looking to get braces.
