Usually, teeth problems that may benefit from orthodontic treatment can be detected by between seven and nine years of age. Most orthodontic treatment is done after all the permanent teeth have come through, at around 11 to 13 years. Some treatment can be started earlier, at about age eight or nine. Adults can be treated too.
We refer to a specialist for difficult cases. Orthodontic treatment begins with assessment, where we take impressions for study moulds, photos and referral for X-ray, followed by a treatment plan and braces or Invisalign.
