People usually come in to see the orthodontist in their teen years, once their adult teeth have settled into place and are in need of some straightening. Adults are increasing seeking orthodontics to correct tooth alignment that wasn’t corrected in their teens or to address problems due to accidents, lost teeth or disease.
Sometimes children as young as seven can be recommended to us in cases where we predict serious misalignment of permanent teeth. In these cases, therapy involves wearing removable dental appliances that coax incoming teeth into the right position.
