I had braces starting at age 10. I think it went well, I sure enjoyed not having them in high school. Also, my parents took me to all the appointments, so that's a consideration. Many of my high school friends drove themselves.
In my case, I just got permanent teeth early by several years. I had two teeth pulled to slow the crowding and delay the braces a bit.
JMHO, go for it earlier rather than later if it doesn't matter. I think compliance is better for younger kids.
After 4 m/c, our is here!
