Frequently Asked Questions

Braces treatment is typically started once all the permanent teeth have come in, usually around the age of 12 or 13. However, orthodontic evaluations can be beneficial at an earlier age, around 7, to identify any potential issues. Adults can also undergo braces treatment, as there is no age limit for improving dental alignment and health.

The duration of braces treatment varies depending on the complexity of the dental issues being corrected. On average, treatment can last from 18 months to 3 years. Consistent follow-up appointments and proper care can help ensure treatment is as efficient as possible.

While braces themselves do not cause pain, some discomfort is normal after the braces are first put on and following adjustment appointments. This discomfort typically lasts a few days and can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers and soft foods.

Regular visits are scheduled approximately every 4 to 8 weeks. These appointments are essential for making adjustments to the braces and monitoring progress. The frequency may vary based on the specifics of your treatment plan.

Yes, you can continue to play sports and musical instruments, but it may require some adjustment. For sports, it’s recommended to wear a mouthguard to protect your braces and teeth. For wind instruments, it may take some time to adjust, but it’s generally feasible to continue playing.

Metal braces are made from high-grade stainless steel, and they are the most traditional type of braces. Ceramic braces function in the same way as metal braces but are made from a clear, ceramic material that makes them less visible on the teeth. While ceramic braces are more aesthetically pleasing, they can be more fragile and might require additional care.
