Braces are devices that are used by an orthodontist to help correct a number of dental problems. These could include anything from gaps in the teeth to overbite or underbite alignment issues to simply making a straighter smile. While many patients have braces placed during their childhood and teenage years, braces can also help adults to have beautiful 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?

There are many patients who question about: what is the age to get braces? It is important to note that patients of all ages can benefit from treatment; however, one of the ideal times is during the middle school years. During this time, the mouth and teeth are still growing and changing. This makes them appropriate and accessible to the straightening action of braces. It is important for parents to go over this process with their children before the braces are placed. Furthermore, more adults are deciding to go with braces to correct smile and bite issues as well.

Types of Braces

There are a number of different types of braces that patients can choose from. These include brackets made out of metal, ceramic, or plastic substances along with clear aligners. Brackets are the classic choice and while metal brackets are the classic and time-tested choice, ceramic or plastic brackets 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 go with special cleaning appliances for their braces.

Those with more dental problems, the longer they will need to wear the braces for. In general, patients should expect to wear their braces for a year or more, followed by wearing a retainer in the future to keep the teeth straight.

What Can I Eat with Braces?

Dietary questions are common with braces and, in general, there are a number of foods that should be avoided. In regards to eating with braces, certain foods can stick to the braces and cause problems with the brackets, possibly causing them to fall off. Soda and high-sugar foods should also be avoided because these can get stuck underneath the brackets and cause
