Will wearing braces hurt?
Today’s braces are more comfortable than ever. The new materials apply a soft and steady force to move the teeth and, generally, hardly cause annoyances and require less adjustments than years ago.
How long does an orthodontic treatment last?
Treatment plans vary depending on the case, but usually lasts between one and three years.
After the treatment is finished, retainers are usually used to keep the teeth in their new position.
Does my child have to wear the brackets at all times?
It will depend on the type of treatment.
Devices that are placed on the teeth (brackets) and are connected to each other by wires, are fixed.
But there are removable devices that are used primarily to guide the eruption of teeth and correct the bad position of the maxillary bones.
Is it advisable to start with orthodontic treatment when they are smaller?
In some cases yes.
There are children who benefit from what is known as interceptive orthodontics (removable appliance). At early ages, even before age 6, the chances of effectively modifying the growth and development of the face and the teeth are much greater.
What is the best time to start an orthodontic treatment?
Normally, the ideal time to start treatment corresponds to the last phase of the mixed dentition, when the child still has some baby teeth and also permanent teeth. This usually happens with 11 or 12 years of age.
Are orthodontic treatments exclusively for children and adolescents?
Absolutely not. Age does not determine the ability to undergo orthodontic treatment.
What makes it difficult is the state of the teeth and gums. That is why it is so important to perform a complete review of oral health before starting orthodontic treatment.
