Braces are usually a permanent fixture on a person's teeth and are not removed until the treatment is finished. This typically happens when the person reaches the age of 13 years old. However, there are cases where children as young as 10 years old need braces due to serious dental problems. In these cases, it is important to get the braces as soon as possible so that the child can have a healthy smile.

It depends on the cause of the problem. An in person consult with the requisite x-rays would help determine the best time for you to start your treatment. It would be best for you to contact either your family dentist or an orthodontist to help you with the same.

Braces in this age not recommended as because of mixed dentition and tooth root are also not completely. If any facial growth deformities are there than can go for such treatment. But tooth movements are possible. Can be done only 14 yrs of age your child.

At this age myofunctional appliances are given so that u need not go for braces. There are better options than braces at any age like aligner. It's not at all costly. U just need to visit a good dentist only once. No monthly visit required.

There is no age limit for braces.. Your kid may need Braces to control the growth of Upper jaw (which you can't do in later ages). But clinical evaluation will be a definitive one.. Pls consult your nearest Dentist.

Greetings. Although this is a little early but I will have to check the patient first, as ortho braces treatment is to be decided on case by case basis. Book an appointment for proper evaluation of condition.

Consult a good orthodontist for the best advice.. It depends if there's a need for growth modification appliance or myofunctional appliance. And whether the problem is skeletal or dental
