ARE THERE ANY ALTERNATIVES TO BRACES?

Alternatives to braces include Invisalign, Clear Choice, and similar aligner-based tooth straightening systems. In many cases, your dentist will leave the choice up to you, while in other cases, your dental needs will dictate the use of one or the other. In addition, modern braces are available in numerous styles, such as clear or tooth-colored brackets and wires, or even a pop of fashion color. In addition, some adults choose veneers rather than braces. This is a cosmetic fix, but it is not appropriate for those who suffer from major bite issues.

WHAT IS THE BEST AGE FOR BRACES

There is no single “best age” for braces. We recommend an early orthodontics appointment around the 7th birthday, which allows us to correct any issues with the permanent teeth as they come in. However, even with early orthodontics interventions, many kids still need braces. They are generally placed between the ages of 10 and 14, with the exact timing dependent on physical growth and the rate at which the permanent teeth are erupting

HOW LONG DO I OR MY CHILD HAVE TO WEAR BRACES?

Braces are typically left in place for one to three years, depending on growth rates and the severity of the issue. The length of treatment also depends on how well the patient follows instructions including avoiding certain foods, maintaining oral hygiene, wearing rubber bands and other auxiliary equipment as directed, and keeping all appointments.

ARE BRACES WORTH IT FOR ADULTS?

Around 20% of braces wearers are adults. They can be highly effective even after the permanent teeth have long since come in. Getting braces as an adult can correct structural problems and give you decades of straight, attractive teeth.

AREN’T BRACES SOLELY COSMETIC?

Many people do get braces for cosmetic reasons, but straight teeth also have many health benefits. They are easier to clean, reducing the risk for tooth decay and gingivitis. In addition, fixing the bite can reduce jaw pain, especially when chewing.

I HATED MY BRACES. ARE THEY AS MISERABLE AS I REMEMBER?

Braces have come a long way in the past few years. Even the traditional metal brackets are smaller and less noticeable than they used to be, while clear and tooth-colored brackets make braces far less visible. Heat-activated wires move teeth constantly and gradually, reducing the pain of adjustments. Above all, advances in technology let us use smart wires and brackets for faster, more efficient, and more comfortable treatment.

HOW CAN I GET MY KID ON BOARD?

The teen years are emotionally trying, and many kids are terrified to add braces to the mix. Gently remind your child that braces are a short-lived treatment that can improve the rest of her life, and that starting early means the treatment can be over by the time things like prom and college visits come along. Also remind your child that many teens get braces, so she is far from alone. Be patient and encouraging, and let your kid come around to the idea rather than forcing it.
