What age will be suitable to fix braces for teeth to my daughter. Her age is 10 years.

7 Doctors Answered
Normally braces work best between the age of 13 to 16 years. The earliest the better.
Sir it depends upon case to case. And ten years is right age to visit a orthodontist so he/she can see the case and plan treatment for her. Sooner the better.

Around 14 to 15 years.
At the age of 13-14 when permanent canines will erupt then you should go for orthodontic treatment because at the age of 9-10 anterior teeth are flared which is called broadbent phenomenon that is a self correcting condition. After the age of 13 will be the best time to decide about the requirement of orthodontic treatment.

When all permanent teeth erupt except last molars normally abut 13-14 years of age.
Generally we advise to start the orthodontic treatment when the canine teeth erupts. But if there is a serious problem related to bones you can go at this age and consult an orthodontist.
