At what age is it best for my child to have braces?

It depends on the problem that needs to be corrected. If the child has a crossbite, the soonest possible time is recommended. Most of the time braces are recommended when the child is between 9.5 and 12 years of age. That is when a lot of growth takes place. Some children are really ahead of the game in terms of growth. They will get braces sooner. Some patients whithout severe problems can wait until all their baby teeth fall out around the age 12 or later.
