HI Justice!
Great question. Orthodontic treatment (braces) differs greatly from person to person, so the reason you are being advised to wait could be for a specific reason. However, one of the most common reasons why we might advise a patient to wait would be if they are younger and some of their adult teeth have not fully grown in, or "erupted" as we say. The orthodontist may wish to have all of the baby teeth out and all the adult teeth in before starting to correct issues. Another issue that may delay orthodontic treatment is restorative work. If you have a lot of cavities or areas that require restoration, that needs to be completed prior to placing braces. You may wish to have a second opinion about the braces or discuss with your doctor the reason for the delay in treatment.

I hope that helps!
