Hopefully Estelle has been evaluated by an orthodontist to see if she needs a 2 phase approach...the American Association of Orthodontists recommend that all kids see a board-certified orthodontist around age 7 or 8 for evaluation (yeah I know they're in Sweden but this is just an example guideline).

Luckily Sweden isnít a development country with lacking or private dental care (not that it would matter for Estelle). We have good and free dental care for children in Scandinavia and braces are covered when needed for teeth health reasons.

FWIW my children were around 13 when check ups began for braces.

I donít want to speak for Kristallinchen, but I only know what people mean by what they write. I read your posts as your being opposed to parents deciding to put braces on children. My point was that, since poor teeth alignment is a health issue, braces are necessary to avoid bigger problems. If I misunderstood Iím sorry, but we all have different opinions and viewpoints here and can agree to disagree.  

ETA: Jinx Kristallinchen!  Star
No, I am not opposed to parents deciding on braces, absolutely not. As I said in my initial post, if the problem is only cosmetic = correcting teeth for a nicer smile.
But clearly I was not able to translate my thoughts properly into English and I am sorry for that and the misunderstanding it lead to.

I think we're probably meaning the same.

In US, at least my area, the braces start around middle school (5th grade; 10ish) so you're usually out by high school.  Estelle is still quite young to put on braces unless medically necessary now. She still has some adult teeth yet to come in so usually they don't rush it,  because they want to see how those come in first. It's very obvious she's still missing some teeth in back and the front haven't come down all the way.  Not sure why everyone's rushing her to braces already.

I donít think anyone was suggesting that she get them now - I think the earliest age anyone mentioned was 10 IIRC. But to me it looks like her teeth are fairly crooked and she will need some sort of orthodontic service even after all her permanent teeth come in.
