Is it normal to get top braces first?
In addition, it is normal to start treatment by having the braces installed on the top teeth first. The top teeth and jawbone take longer to align and move compared to the bottom teeth. After a period of time, based on what needs to be done to the bottom teeth and jawbone, the bottom braces are then installed.
Why are braces so expensive?

Which teeth braces are best?
Ceramic braces are often favoured by adult orthodontic patients because they are less noticeable than metal alternatives. They are made from translucent materials; some options even include tooth-coloured wires to make them even more discreet. This can make a big difference.
Are braces painful?
The honest answer is that braces do not hurt at all when they are applied to the teeth, so there is no reason to be anxious about the placement appointment. There will be mild soreness or discomfort after the orthodontic wire is engaged into the newly placed brackets, which may last for a few days to a week.
Do braces change your face?
Yes, undergoing orthodontic treatment can bring changes to a person’s face. Don’t worry though – the changes that braces will make are purely positive! Braces will fix alignment issues with your face and give you a more symmetrical, natural look to both your mouth and your jawline.
Can you get braces at 20?
Both adults and children can wear braces, but it is critical for the involved orthodontist to know the differences in treating an adult versus a child. A child up to approximately age 20 or 22 still experiences some jaw growth as the braces are moving the teeth.
