Orthodontic braces are devices that correct crowded or misaligned teeth and improve their alignment.
Braces work by applying pressure to the teeth, thus providing movement to gradually correct their position over time.
Teeth braces are commonly recommended by the dentist during childhood or early adolescence.
Although the process can be expensive and time consuming, it has a high rate of success and can provide great dental benefits that can change one’s teeth for a lifetime.
These are the common symptoms that require orthodontic braces:
- Visibly crowded or misaligned teeth
- Generalised spacing of teeth
- Difficulty in brushing crowded teeth
- Difficulty in pronouncing certain sounds due to tongue’s position under your teeth
- Jaw clicking or TMJ problems
- Crossbite, underbite, or deep bite
- Uneven force while chewing your food
It is recommended to have your teeth checked to see if there will be a need for orthodontic braces when you reach 7 years of age. Once it is assessed that there are underlying conditions that require orthodontic treatment, early treatment can be given to improve outcomes.
Normally, minor conditions like crowding can be corrected in about 4 to 12 months. More complex dental problems, on the other hand, can usually be corrected within 18 to 30 months.
