Early Treatment

When to pursue orthodontic treatment and braces is one of the most frequently asked questions we receive. Orthodontic examinations and treatments can be started at a young age. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends an orthodontic screening as early as seven years old. This early screening age is optimal for diagnosing issues early so they may be addressed effectively and the most appropriate age. The orthodontist examination will reveal the severity of dental and jaw issues and determine when treatment should commence. Most commonly, orthodontic treatments begin at the age of 12 years old.

Rentention Phase

Retainers

After completing active orthodontic treatment, the retention phase will start and continue for a minimum of one year. The retention phase is an important part of the orthodontic process as retainers stabilize and preserve the work.

Oral Surgery

Some patients have a substantial difference in the size, shape or position of the upper and lower jaws that require oral surgery (also called orthognathic surgery) in these cases, the surgery is performed in conjunction with the orthodontic treatment.
