Regardless of whether you are a teenager or an adult, having a gorgeous smile with beautiful, straight teeth will give your self confidence a huge boost. At Orthodontist Carrollton, we offer various types of braces, which include traditional metal braces and clear braces to straighten teeth right up. If you or your children need or want orthodontic treatment, our orthodontists are ready to assist you with getting a beautifully aligned smile.
On the average, patients who have orthodontic treatment will usually spend 6 to 30 months wearing their braces. Braces are fixed orthodontic appliances made up of versatile metal wire, which is attached to the teeth by small brackets. These brackets are usually cemented onto the front surfaces of the teeth and are crafted from metal or a tooth-colored ceramic material.
Braces are able to effectively work on the teeth just by applying gentle pressure to the teeth through the wire. This results in the teeth to gradually move into the desired positions. At times, small orthodontic rubber bands are also used to assist with the teeth movements. If the teeth are over-crowded in the mouth, it may be vital to extract one or more teeth to make enough space for the other teeth, or even to utilize a special orthodontic device to make even more room in the upper jaw. Every person’s mouth is different, and what each person will need is unique. This is why when you have your initial appointment with us at Orthodontist Carrollton, we will be able to go over the best treatment plan for your teeth.
When to start orthodontic treatment
- It is recommended for children to start orthodontic treatment soon after their first permanent molars erupt, which is typically around age 7 or 8 years old. But for many children, treatment typically begins when most of their permanent have come in, which is the around age 12 or 13. We do recommend children to have an orthodontic evaluation at around the age of 7 simply because the sooner certain problems are identified; the easier it will be to have treated.
- Some of the obvious signs orthodontic treatment may be necessary are if you notice teeth sticking in or out, overcrowded teeth in the mouth or even teeth out of place. Additionally, for people who have speech difficulties, frequent cheek biting, mouth breathers or sucked their thumb should have an orthodontic evaluation by our orthodontics specialists at Orthodontist Carrollton.
Once the braces are removed, more than likely you will need to wear a removable retainer for a period of time to keep the teeth from moving back to their previous positions. With the retainer, it will help ensure you keep that attractive looking smile for a lifetime!
