There is no right age to do this. Only the orthodontist can answer this question after he sees the patient. The reason is because the gap in the front teeth may look the same on everybody but there might be different reasons for every person that has one. This means that the treatment may be different for every person.

If you were to see the orthodontist and he felt that it was too early to start treatment, he would tell you when to come back. On the other hand if you go later than you should, while it could still be done, it may get more complicated to do.

When a tooth is extracted, a blood clot forms in the socket. This both protects the bone in the socket from being exposed and allows the body to start healing. A dry socket occurs when this blood clot breaks loose and falls out of the socket. The bone is now exposed and it is very painful. I had one myself many years ago, so I can vouch for the pain! It is treated by placing a medicated paste or packs into the socket to protect the bone. This does not heal it. It merely makes the area more comfortable. Time is what heals this. Over some time(7-14 days), the gum covers up the bone and the discomfort goes away.
