What is the correct age to start orthodontic treatment?

The correct age is 5 to 8 years, but it will be the orthodontist, only after a thorough examination, who will determine what is the right time to start treatment.

When malocclusion affects bone structures and teeth, it is essential to intervene at an early age (5/6 years) to take advantage of their malleability. If, on the other hand, the malocclusion is primarily cosmetic, it is possible to delay intervention toward the end of dental development (11/12 years).
