marion orthodontistIf you’re looking for information on the perfect timing for braces, you’re in the right place! There are people from all stages of life who can benefit from orthodontic treatment. While teenagers and adults can also get braces, you may ask what the ideal time for starting orthodontic treatment is. Our Marion orthodontist explains more below.

What Is The Best Time?

While adults can still undergo treatment and experience amazing results, It is ideal to have treatment done earlier rather than later. 

The best time to have orthodontic treatment is in early-to-mid childhood, while the face and mouth are still developing. At this stage in life, the roof of the mouth (palate) hasn’t fused yet and it is much easier to move the teeth to their desired position. As we age, the teeth become harder to move and may be more painful. 

Who Gets Treatment? How Long?

Anyone who is unhappy with their teeth should consider treatment to achieve the smile that they want. Treatment plans and outcomes depend on age, the scope of treatment, and the desired method (Invisalign vs. traditional metal braces, or even another option). Length of treatment can vary from one year to three years based on these factors. After you get the smile you want, it may be necessary to wear a retainer to maintain your straight teeth. Commitment to treatment and aftercare is critical so the teeth don’t shift back.

What Types Of Treatments?

There are a few different types of braces treatments available, including traditional metal braces and Invisalign. Traditional metal braces are a reliable way to get the smile you want and are cost-effective. However, since older children and teenagers may want a more discreet option, consider Invisalign treatment. Invisalign uses plastic trays to adjust the teeth instead of traditional brackets, so they are less noticeable and help self-confidence. Talk to our orthodontist today to discuss all your different options!
