For most young adults, it’s very important to correct the smile that will be their future. For this reason, adolescence is the ideal time to undertake most comprehensive orthodontic corrections. Why? This is because the permanent teeth are all present and growth potential is at its optimum. This stage is generally reached between the ages of 11 and 13. At this age, teeth are generally in good health, making treatment simpler. In addition, in order to be reimbursed by the social security system, treatment must take place before the age of 17.
The appliance will do its job with the help of jaw growth. The average age at which growth ends (17 for boys and 15 for girls) must also be taken into account.
