Braces are metal or ceramic attachments on teeth with wires and elastics used to put light forces on teeth. They are an efficient and accurate way of moving teeth to achieve straighter teeth and a correct bite. For most patients, the optimal time to start orthodontic treatment with braces is early adolescence when all the baby teeth have been lost and the individual is still growing. Adults too can have braces to improve their smiles. 

Benefits of straight teeth:

  • Improved oral hygiene because it is easier to clean your teeth and gums.

  • Less wear from clenching and grinding.

  • Less stress on the jaw joint from bad biting patterns.

  • Better facial support in some cases.

  • Improved aesthetics can lead to increased confidence and self esteem.

Not correcting an abnormal bite could result in further oral health problems, including:

  • Tooth decay

  • Gum disease

  • Tooth loss

  • Affected speech and/or chewing

  • Abnormal wear to tooth enamel

  • Jaw problems

How long does it take?

Orthodontic treatment with fixed braces usually takes 18-24 months to complete, but it is not uncommon for braces to be removed after about 12 months if the malocclusion is not too severe. The wires which connect the brackets need to be tightened or changed every few weeks to gradually shift your teeth and jaw.
