What are Orthodontics?
Orthodontics are the treatment of misaligned teeth and jaws, most commonly through the use of braces. While braces are the most popular method, invisible aligners have gained momentum. At PRECiDENT, we specialize not just in dentistry, but also in orthodontics. Our orthodontists handle patients of all ages, from children to adults.
Who Benefits From Orthodontics?
Orthodontics are not specific to any group in paticular. Misaligned teeth or jaws can affect anyone of any age. Even though anyone can be affected, this also means that anyone can receive treatment. It is never too late to correct your smile. Through braces or invisible aligners, your teeth or bite can be corrected regardless of how long they have been misaligned.
How Does the Process of Braces Work?
The process of getting braces is a multi-step process. The braces are applied to the teeth with a special glue and then a wire is threaded through them. The wire is used to connect the braces and teeth together and begin the process of pulling the teeth into alignment. The entire process can last anywhere from a few months to a few years. During this time, regular appointments with your orthodontist are required to ensure that your teeth are aligning properly.
