The Perfect Age for Braces
“Am I too old for braces?”“Is my child old enough for an orthodontic consult?”“Which type of orthodontics is right for someone my age?”
If you’re considering getting braces or have been putting them off, you might be wondering whether or not there’s a perfect age for starting the process. In reality, it all boils down to the type of braces that you have in mind, your current oral health, and how old you or your child are.
Here are a few things to consider:
Orthodontic experts recommend a screening for all children by age 7. Dr. Alizadeh includes the bite assessment as part of every exam in our Sacramento office. Some of the things that come into play are the eruption patterns of your child’s bite, their jaw development, and habits such as thumb sucking.
By the time your child is a teen, you need to start considering things like developing wisdom teeth, maturity, oral hygiene habits, and their self-esteem.
Adults have the best of both worlds: they can choose to go the route of wearing conventional braces, invisible Invisalign aligners, or even opt for a quicker, cosmetic option like Six Month Smiles.
There really isn’t any age where someone can outgrow the chance of having a straighter smile. At Marconi Dental Group, Dr. Alizadeh has helped adults and children of all ages enjoy straighter, healthier smiles.
How to Choose the Best Braces for Your Smile
If you’ve been thinking about straightening your smile, it can feel a bit intimidating. Once you’ve decided you actually want to go through with getting braces, then you have to choose which type of braces you’re going to wear. How can you make the process an easier one?

The overall length of your treatment will depend on what we’re trying to achieve and the extent of bite discrepancy that you have.
If You’re Going for Maximum Aesthetics
Even if you have a slight tooth rotation, traditional ortho is perfect for tweaking your overall bite in an efficient manner.
If You’re Looking for a Budget Friendly Option
You might be surprised to know that there isn’t that big of a price difference between traditional braces and Invisalign. But, if you’re going for a fast treatment for aesthetics, Six Month Smiles is about half the cost of more comprehensive treatment methods.
Which Type of Braces is Right for Me?
traditional braces can successfully help you correct those concerns.
Invisalign braces are the most “invisible” style of orthodontics available.
Six Month Smiles is an excellent option. Like the name states, most people have straighter looking smiles in just 6 months.
