WHEN SHOULD THE ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT NEEDS TO BE STARTED?
Orthodontic treatments are applicable in every age.
However, especially if there are any problems in the jaw area, individuals need to be examined before the puberty (between 10-12 ages) to benefit the advantages of the naturally growing bones. If it’s required treatment can start immediately after the examination.
For the children (around 5-6 ages), early detection of the possible problems which might affect the growth and development is very important.
Transparent dental bracers and porcelain bracts are the latest modernity of the orthodontics and they are barely visible. That’s why unlike the other treatments applied in the recent years, modern methods are not problems for the patient’s appearance. Additionally, Lingual Technique allows treatment to be made from the surface of palate. As the most advanced innovation in this area, invisalign treatment only requires a measurement of the teeth and then simple plaque application in certain time periods without needing the dental bracers.
