Frequently Asked Questions regarding braces
What’s the best age to get braces?
Every child’s needs are different when it comes to the timing of braces. One of the main determining factors is what sort of issues need to be addressed for your child; do they have crowding, spacing, a large overbite?
The second determining factor is how are your child’s teeth developing. Dental age and chronological age do not always coincide so we may see a 9 year old with all of their permanent teeth or a 14 year old that still has their baby teeth. There is a window of opportunity for the ideal timing of treatment for your child which is why the Association of Orthodontists recommends ortho check ups at Age 7. This is not so that braces can go on at this time but it’s to get a baseline and to have an orthodontist monitoring the growth and development of your child so that you will know when the best time is for your child.
How long does my child have to wear braces?
Every situation is unique however braces on average take approximately 2 years until the grand reveal of the beautiful smile you or your child deserve. Very mild cases may take as few as six months.
What is it like to have braces put on your teeth? Does it hurt?
The great news is that braces have come along way. Now with flexible wires and gentle forces, braces are a lot more comfortable than they were in the past. We always tell our patients, it’s like getting a new pair of shoes. Your feet have to break in the new shoes, and your cheeks and lips need to get use to the fact that you have braces in you mouth.
