The use of fixed or removable braces improves the functions and aesthetics of crooked teeth, teeth which contain gaps and crowded teeth. A brace straightens teeth by gradually moving teeth into the correct position using a small force. With many braces you will have to wear a fixed non-removable brace for between one and two years and a dentist will check your braces regularly to make sure everything is going according to plan.
Who can wear braces?
People of any age can wear a brace, and the majority of people are aged around 11 or 12 years old. However, braces are becoming more popular with adults as teeth straightening technology is developed. Discreet, tooth-coloured or clear braces and aligners in particular are rising in popularity as people are striving to improve their teeth without having to compromise by wearing a metal brace.
What are the options?
Before any teeth straightening treatment is recommended or undertaken, your dentist will do a full x-ray of your teeth and you will decide together what’s the best action to take in order to receive the best results.
