When Should Kids Get Braces?
Kids should get braces when their baby teeth have fallen out and adult teeth (wisdom teeth notwithstanding) have grown in. This usually happens between the ages of 11-13. While you might need to wait a couple years before your child can get braces, they can see an orthodontist around the age of 6 or 7. This is the age when adult teeth begin growing in and issues such as overcrowding take root.
