1. 7 - 12 years
Are you waiting to see your child "old enough" for braces, before you start visiting your orthodontists? Dr. Karan Tangri, an expert in braces treatment in Delhi, recommends that your child's first visit to an orthodontist should be at 7 years of age, to see how the teeth are erupting. At this age, problems like uneven bite and tooth overlapping will become common. But, starting the early stage procedure doesn't mean that a child will get braced right away. Early stage processing will allow orthodontist to find problems and decide the best time to start treatment. There are times when your children might lose their milk teeth early (due to cavities), leading to premature eruption of permanent teeth in an abnormal position. In these circumstances an early intervention of an orthodontist will be required.
According to the experts of braces treatment in Delhi, there are certain orthodontic appliances that can correct and modulate the jaw growth in the correct manner, only if the child visits the orthodontist in the growing stage.
2. 12- 18 years
The teenage years (between the ages of 12 and 18) are the most common time for orthodontic treatment. That's because by age of 12 years, most, if not all, of your permanent teeth have erupted and are in place so cracked tooth, bad bites and gaping between teeth can be easily observed. These dental difficulties are rarely correct themselves, so this is time when the majority of people seek braces treatment in Delhi.
3. Adult orthodontics
Thinking about getting braces? There is no age limit. Now days, there are nearly half of adult patients hoping to finally get the perfect smile they've always dreamt about. There is no set age after which orthodontic treatment is not possible. According to the experts of braces treatment in Delhi, it is not the age but the health of alveolar bone that determines whether treatment by braces will be possible or not. Tongue thrust is a condition in which teeth in adults can shift according to the age, because of injury or tooth damage and natural growth. Some adults find that their previously straight teeth have become crooked and overcrowded or there is spacing between their teeth. They may start experiencing jaw pain, have difficulty in properly cleaning their teeth, or simply find their smile unattractive. Other adults get braces because they've always had crooked teeth, but for some reason they did not get braces when they were growing up.
