The best time to fit braces is during adolescence, or around 12½ years of age
If you have a teenager that needs braces now is the time to act!
Braces during high school is ideal because all the adult teeth have erupted and the patient is growing. Orthodontics during this time is quick, successful, and achieves the best result long-term.
Dr. Devan (Orthodontist) firmly believes in starting when his patient is both physically (all the adult teeth are there and the growth spurt is underway) and mentally (brushing is under control and motivation is high) ready. Therefore he selects his patients very carefully and only starts at the perfect time -usually during their teenage years.
