Orthodontics specializes in the diagnosis, prevention, and correction of dentofacial irregularities such as crowded teeth, forwardly placed teeth and abnormal position of the teeth and the jaws. Orthodontic treatment can be done at any age, provided the bone condition is good. With the advent of fashion industry and innumerable beauty pageants, there is great awareness amongst people about their dental appearance.
Crooked and irregular teeth are difficult to clean and maintain, and are at risk of being lost early due to tooth decay and periodontal disease, and cause extra stress on the chewing muscles that can lead to headaches, TMJ syndrome, and neck, shoulder and back pain. The benefits of orthodontic treatment include a healthier mouth, a more pleasing appearance, and teeth that are more likely to last a lifetime.
It is never too late. Healthy teeth can be moved at any age and orthodontic treatment can help create and restore good function. Teeth that work better usually look better, too. A healthy, beautiful smile can improve self-esteem and make one feel good about one’s self.
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that your child is evaluated by age 7. Early detection is important to avoid more difficult problems later.
With the advances that have been made in this area of specialization, orthodontic treatment is possible even in patients as old as 45 – 50 years provided the gum condition is good.
Braces may be on between 6 months to 30 months, or longer depending on the age of the patient, the severity of the problem, the patient’s cooperation, and the degree of movement possible.
