Typically orthodontic treatment for alignment of teeth begins in the early teens because we need to have all permanent teeth to set them right. However there are certain conditions where intervention may be required early. There is no age limit for getting orthodontic correction. All we need are teeth with good bone support and periodontal ligament support.

Early orthodontic intervention:
1.Any discrepancy in the jaws ( excessive growth or deficient growth of either jaws)

In these situations the orthodontist needs to intervene to correct the bone condition or reduce the severity of malocclusion to be corrected at a later date. Various appliances will be required in correcting these problems. Since these appliances correct the jaws they are called orthopedic appliances. These appliances may be intra oral (appliances within the mouth) or extra oral (appliances outside the mouth).

Conventional orthodontic treatment:
If your child has none of the above problems then you may need to wait until all permanent teeth erupt to go through a process of brackets or aligners for their correction. The correction of crowded teeth may or may not require extraction depending on the severity of the malocclusion.
Surgical orthodontics:

Your child may have some skeletal problem and you have not got them to meet the orthodontist early in life. Such skeletal problems can only be corrected non-surgically during active growth period. Once the growth is completed they can only be either camouflaged or corrected surgically. Hence adult patients having a jaw discrepancy may need to undergo surgery to get their alignment issues sorted out.
