What is the most appropriate age to use dental braces?

The orthopedic or functional appliance should be placed from the age of 6 years after the eruption of the first definitive molars when there is a problem in the dental arches if they are more projected or collapsed.


If it is a problem of slight crowding, you can begin the orthodontic treatment later at the age of 11-13 with the complete permanent dentition.


Maxillary surgery (orthognathic surgery) is indicated in adult patients when the malformation is related to the development of the bone structure.
