Common Questions

Questions? We've got Answers

How do I know if my child needs braces?

Your child may need braces if they have crowded teeth, crooked teeth, bite issues, or other orthodontic concerns. An orthodontic evaluation can determine if braces are necessary.

What age should my child get braces?

The ideal age for braces varies depending on individual dental development. Orthodontic treatment typically begins between ages 9 and 14 when most permanent teeth have erupted and jaw growth is still ongoing.

Will braces hurt my child?

Braces may cause some discomfort or soreness initially as the teeth adjust to the pressure. However, advancements in orthodontic technology have made modern braces more comfortable than ever before.

How long will my child need to wear braces?

The duration of orthodontic treatment varies depending on the severity of the dental issues and the chosen treatment plan. On average, children wear braces for 1-3 years, but individual timelines may differ.

Can a teenager still get braces?

Yes, teenagers can get braces to correct orthodontic issues just like children. In fact, the teenage years are a common time for orthodontic treatment since most permanent teeth have erupted by this age.

Will braces affect my teen's social life?

While there may be an adjustment period, most teens quickly adapt to life with braces. Modern braces are less noticeable than in the past, and many teens find that their friends hardly notice them after a while.

Can my teen still play musical instruments with braces?

Yes, braces typically do not interfere with playing musical instruments. However, there may be an adjustment period as your teen gets used to the braces, especially if they play wind instruments such as trumpet.

Are there different types of braces for adults?

Yes, adults have various options for orthodontic treatment, including traditional metal braces, clear braces, lingual braces, and clear aligners like Invisalign. The best option depends on the individual’s preferences and orthodontic needs.

Can adults get braces if they have missing teeth?

Yes, adults with missing teeth can still get braces to correct alignment issues. Depending on the situation, orthodontic treatment may be combined with other dental procedures like implants or bridges to achieve optimal results.

How long do adults typically wear braces?

The duration of orthodontic treatment for adults varies depending on the complexity of the case. On average, adults wear braces for 18-36 months, but individual treatment timelines may be shorter or longer.

What happens after braces are removed?

After braces are removed, patients typically wear retainers to maintain the results of treatment. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are also essential to ensure the teeth remain healthy and aligned over time.
