What is the Best Age for Orthodontic Treatment?
Although it is beneficial to begin orthodontic treatment early, it is never too late to start orthodontic treatment. At the Doral & Miami Centers for Orthodontics, we specialize in orthodontic solutions for all ages. Children and teenagers have more flexibility with their treatments because their teeth and jaws are still developing. This is why we stress early treatment for younger patients, as early as age 7, as it allows us to prevent major orthodontic issues from developing that would otherwise require extensive treatment. Regardless, braces and other appliances are still an effective solution for those looking to achieve their best smile. To learn more about our braces treatments, we invite patients to explore the following pages:
What Can Orthodontic Treatment Fix?
Orthodontic treatments are designed to correct irregularities in the teeth. These treatments correct the position and alignment of the teeth, creating teeth that are appropriately spaced and aesthetically pleasing. They can also be used to fix malocclusions, or improper bites. This can include overbites, underbites, or any other scenario where your teeth don’t line up properly while biting. Most often, the treatment we recommend for these issues is braces.
How Will Braces Affect My Lifestyle?
Braces may take some getting used to, as you will have to adjust to brushing and flossing around wires and brackets. You will also need to avoid certain foods, as foods that are hard, sticky, or chewy can cause damage to your braces. Besides these considerations, you will be able to do everything that you could do without braces. To learn more about adjusting to living with braces, visit our page on life with braces. If you are concerned about the limitations of braces, you may want to consider Invisalign®. To learn more about the Invisalign treatment, please refer to the following pages:
