Many years ago, it was commonplace not to visit the orthodontist until your teen years. Many still have this same notion today due to life experience and the depiction of braces-wearing teens on television and movies.

Are you considering braces for yourself or a loved one? If so, you might be wondering when is a good time to visit the orthodontist. The easiest answer is whenever you have a question about your bite, or alignment of the teeth. However, the answer truly is more complicated than that. There are times, especially for young children, when bite and jaw issues aren’t as obvious as when children enter adolescence or even adulthood. We also hear from adults interested in orthodontic care who feel like they are too old to visit us for a consultation.
