At Devanshi Dental Clinic, we offer braces treatment for correcting the malocclusion caused due to variation in teeth position. Some individuals have teeth that may not allow them to eat and clean their teeth well, at times it may also be of aesthetic concern, with the help of orthodontic treatment one can regain normal function and aesthetics.
When is the right time for braces?
A patient with orthodontic problems can benefit from treatment at nearly any age but ideal time for placement of braces is between 10 and 14 years of age, as the head and mouth are still growing and teeth are more accessible to straightening.
However, because any adjustments in facial appearance can be traumatic to a child during these sensitive years, parents should discuss the matter with their child before starting braces treatment. There’s one thing we would like to mention here that “braces aren't just for kids”. More and more adults are also wearing braces to correct minor problems and to improve the way look and smile.
What kind of braces will I have to wear?
At Devanshi dental clinic, our braces treatment expert will suggest what is best for your particular problem, but you often have a choice. Braces generally come in three varieties: The most popular type are brackets, metal or plastic, that are attached to teeth and are far less noticeable. The “lingual” type of braces are brackets that attach to the back of teeth, hidden from view. Bands are the traditional type that cover most of your teeth with metal bands that wrap around the teeth. All use wires to move the teeth to the desired position.
How long will I have to wear braces?
Well, that completely depends on the treatment plan. The more complicated your spacing or bite problem is, and the older you are, the longer the period of treatment, usually. Most patients can count on wearing full braces between 18 and 30 months, followed by the wearing of a retainer for at least a few months to up to two years to set and align tissues surrounding straightened teeth. Some patients may have to wear a permanent retainer.
There can be more questions like, Is the treatment be uncomfortable? Do I have to avoid any foods or personal habits? Is it going to pain? And many more.. We would suggest visiting Devanshi Dental Clinic and getting your check up done to get all your answers.
