What is the proper age to start Orthodontic Treatment?

This depends on the problem presented by an individual.Previously it was presumed to start Orthodontic Treatment only after all permanent teeth have erupted in the mouth i.e. around 12 years.This is far from true. If patient has skeletal(jaw mismatch) problem then earlier we start better it is for both the orthodontist and the patient. Younger the patient, more resilient and elastic are the tissues so it is easier to bring about necessary changes.
