It is common for the permanent teeth to be present between the ages of 11 and 14. Irregular positions, spacing, crowding, and unhealthy biting relationships can easily be detected. These types of orthodontic problems hardly ever correct themselves. Dr. Kevin Wilke will recommend the best time for your treatment.
Because orthodontics is most commonly associated with adolescence, teen patients may be less apprehensive about the appearance of braces. Additionally, children at this age have high metabolisms, which can help shorten overall treatment time and reduce discomfort.
Your initial exam answers any questions you may have about orthodontic treatment, such as: What are the problems, what does it take to correct them, how long will treatment take, and how much does it cost? Call our office for an initial complimentary examination.
