If a person looks more correct or even good-looking, but smiles will reveal a mouthful of ragged teeth, which is very embarrassing, I believe many people will choose to use orthodontics to change all of this. But many people look at their age and wonder if they can do orthodontics, or some people think that their children are still young and there is no need to do orthodontics now, then you are wrong, as long as the periodontal health is healthy Orthodontics can be done at any age, but under normal circumstances, the suitable period for orthodontics is 12-18 years old.
Why is orthodontic treatment better during this period? Let’s take a look below.
- From 6 to 12 years old
The fundamental purpose of choosing correction for this age group is mostly to fear that the child’s face will have protruding mandibular, orthognathic, and posterior teeth, and bad oral habits that will affect the child’s facial development. If it has been determined that the deciduous teeth are not aligned and the relationship between the various upper and lower teeth is abnormal, they should be corrected and repaired in time at an early stage, because the development of children at this age is still continuing, and the speed of teeth movement is relatively fast. Therefore, the time required for orthodontics will be shorter, and generally, good restoration effects can be obtained.
- From 12 to 18 years old
Because the permanent teeth have begun to form gradually when the child is about 12 years old, if the teeth are not aligned at this time, they will not disappear by themselves and need to be repaired by orthodontic treatment. At this time, the child’s teeth are just in the period of rapid development, which is a good period for correcting irregular teeth. If the child is found to have tooth deformity, he can choose to correct it at this age. Moreover, orthodontics at the age of 12 to 18 can not only correct children’s crowded and disordered teeth but also prevent or treat periodontal diseases in advance.
- Adults over 30
If adults choose to receive orthodontics, there will be more restrictions. Of course, no matter what age they can receive orthodontic treatment. Because the force exerted in orthodontics is the same, whether it is an adult or a child, the effect on the movement of the teeth is the same. However, because the roots of adults have basically developed and no longer grow, it is necessary to use higher techniques if they are corrected. Relatively speaking, the price of orthodontics will be more expensive than that of minors, and it will take longer.
Therefore, when you find that your child’s teeth are not aligned or unsightly, you should go for an examination as soon as possible, and determine whether you need orthodontics for treatment. Don’t miss the age of your child for orthodontics. After all, correcting at the right age can save too much time, energy, and money. Relatively speaking, this can be considered a good thing. You can have a beautiful tooth, and it can also increase a lot of self-confidence.
