What are the 3 braces?
There are 3 main types of braces: traditional metal braces, ceramic clear braces, and Invisalign invisible aligners.
What is a good age for braces?
Traditionally, treatment with dental braces begins when a child has lost most of his or her baby (primary) teeth, and a majority of the adult (permanent) teeth have grown in — usually between the ages of 8 and 14.
Do braces fix teeth permanently?
For most people, braces are the safest and most effective way to permanently straighten their teeth. If your teeth are only slightly crooked or just a bit crowded, an orthodontist-prescribed retainer may be enough to get them straight. You shouldn’t attempt to straighten your teeth by yourself.
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.
Does 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.
How long do braces last?
Most patients will need to wear fixed braces for around 18 to 24 months. For problems that are harder to correct, or for our older patients, treatment may take up to three years. If you have less severe issues or are a good candidate for clear aligners like Invisalign, treatment may take as little as 6 to 12 months.
Can I get braces at 50?
The good news is that you can get your teeth straightened no matter your age. Braces aren’t just for kids. Even adults aged 50 and over can benefit from treatment by an orthodontist.
Can you kiss with lingual braces?
With lingual braces, there is nothing rubbing on the inside of your cheeks and with the use of a little dental wax, there is nothing to stop you enjoying the pleasure of a sweet kiss. Although great care must be taken with cleaning lingual braces, as with all braces, any staining or discolouration will not be seen.
How can I speed up my braces?
Keep Your Mouth Clean Brushing and flossing twice a day is one of the simplest and most effective ways to get your braces off faster. With braces and bands, it’s easier for food to get stuck in the metal; using an electric tooth brush and brushing in a circular motion will prevent plaque build-up.
How can I straighten my teeth without braces?
