Benefits of Braces (Orthodontic Treatment)
Braces provide excellent long-term value:
How are braces put on teeth?
Why do we have crowded teeth?
The reasons may be teeth that grew out of order during childhood, bad habits, accidental loss of a tooth, and misplaced molars, among others.
Does the placement of braces hurt?
The first time you have braces installed, it is normal to experience mild to moderate pain; this also occurs after adjustment controls. However, these discomforts are temporary.
If I get braces, do I have to change my diet?
It is recommended to avoid hard or sticky foods, such as gum, popsicles, peanuts, and fried foods, as they can cause cleaning to be a hassle or even pop off a piece of your orthodontic treatment.
What is the best age to wear braces?
Commonly, braces are applied when the permanent teeth come out, that is, around 12 years of age and older.
What is the age limit for braces?
Actually, there is no age limit to start using braces. It is possible to modify the position of the teeth in people aged 30, 40, and 50, as long as it is indicated by your dentist and there are no other oral problems that could prevent or complicate the treatment.
How long should braces be worn?
The treatment can last from 18 to 24 months or even up to 30 months or more, depending on the indications of your specialist.
