Undergoing treatment during the teenage years reduces treatment time, improves results and minimises the need for further intervention in the future. Although everyone is different, treatment usually lasts from 12-18 months.
The most common time to receive orthodontic treatment is during the teenage years, with the typical ages being 11 to 15 years old.
Around age 11 or 12, the final permanent teeth (except, in some cases, the third molars, or “wisdom teeth”) have erupted. This is the ideal stage of development to assess the alignment of the teeth accurately and identify any crooked teeth, gaps, or poor alignment.
