You might think that getting braces at a young age seems unusual, especially if you got braces as a teenager or adult. However, the truth is that most children, around 90%, won’t need braces until they have all their permanent teeth in, typically around the age of 12 or 13. That said, roughly 10% of children will benefit from limited braces as part of their early orthodontic treatment plan.
Some of the problems where limited braces may be recommended during early orthodontic treatment or phase I orthodontic treatment:
- Crowded teeth
- Protruding teeth
- Thumb sucking or other finger habits
- If your child is experiencing self-esteem issues or being bullied due to the appearance of their teeth.
