Braces are devices that are used by an orthodontist to help correct a number of dental problems. These could include gaps in the teeth, overbite or underbite alignment issues or simply to make teeth straighter. While many patients have braces placed during their childhood and teenage years, braces can also help adults achieve beautifully aligned teeth. Before deciding to place braces, there are a number of common questions that many patients have.

What is the Best Age for Braces?

Patients of all ages can benefit from braces. However, the AAO (American Association of Orthodontics recommends a check-up with an orthodontic specialist no later than age 7. Early treatment may prevent more serious problems from developing and may make treatment at a later age shorter and less complicated. In some cases, the orthodontist will be able to achieve results that may not be possible once the face and jaws have finished growing.

Types of Braces

There are quite a few different options when it comes to braces. Patients can choose from brackets, made from metal or ceramic. Brackets are a classic, time-tested choice. Ceramic may be chosen due to their aesthetic and cosmetic appearance. Clear aligners are a nice alternative as well because they are removable and do not require patients to alter their diet or use special cleaning appliances for their braces.

How Long Do I Have To Wear Braces For?

This depends on the age of the patient, the problems that are being corrected and the type of treatment. In general, most patients should expect to wear their braces for at least one year, followed by a retainer to keep teeth straight. Those with additional dental issues/treatments may need more than a year in braces.

What Food Should I Avoid With Braces?

In general, there are a number of foods you should avoid while wearing braces: hard candy, sticky foods and other hard foods like raw vegetables and nuts. Soda and high-sugar foods should also be avoided, the sugar can become stuck underneath the brackets.
