How does growth affect treatment?
A comprehensive consultation with one of our specialist orthodontists will help us determine the optimal age for treatment as every case is different.
In saying that, One of the best times to carry out orthodontic treatment is often during the child’s growth years, because the teeth and jaws can be guided to move into the correct position during development.
It is still possible to correct problems later in life, it’s often easier to do while the bones are growing. However we have many late starting and adult patients who achieve successful outcomes.
