Right Age for Orthodontics

Orthodontics is both an art and a science that can benefit patients of virtually any age.

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that all children receive an orthodontic examination at age 7 and even earlier if a problem is discovered by a parent or the family dentist. The timing of orthodontic treatment is extremely important particularly with our younger patients.

Early diagnosis and treatment can help guide facial growth and tooth eruption, and prevent more serious future problems. Kemp & Rice Orthodontics’ goal is to reduce treatment time in full braces and to provide the best and most stable results possible. Since no two patients are alike, there is not a specific age that is best to begin treatment. Adolescents that show signs of misalignment of teeth or a dysfunctional jaw or bite are strong candidates for care. It is very typical for adults, no matter what age to experience rotation or misalignment of teeth. At Kemp & Rice Orthodontics over 40% of all orthodontic patients are adults. Our recommendation is that you visit Kemp & Rice Orthodontics for an initial orthodontic exam and see the difference that a beautiful smile can make for you.
