When To Start
At Andrews Orthodontics, about 80% our patients are adolescents or young adults. But that means that 20% of our patient base is over the age of 21.
Even senior citizens sign up for treatment with us. Basically, it’s never too late to straighten your teeth and have the smile that you’ve always wanted.
Ideally, our patients will first see us at age 7. It’s unlikely we’ll recommend braces for someone that young, but age 7 the time we can start seeing how the adult mouth is taking shape, and we can steer its development into a healthy bite and straight teeth. But again, if you’re 17, 37 or 77 and have never seen an orthodontist and want to feel empowered by your smile, the time to start is today.
