Frequently Asked Questions about Braces

CollapseWHY SHOULD I GET MY KID CHECKED OUT BY AN ORTHODONTIST BY AGE 7?Some orthodontic problems such as underbites, large over bites, severe crowding, severely protruded front teeth, and narrow jaws are much easier to correct at a younger age.These corrections usually work best between ages 7 and 10, while the jaw is still growing, and are sometimes referred to as “early intervention” or “Phase I”treatment. Even if you think your child won’t need this sort of treatment, it’s good to have the orthodontist check out the way that your child’s teeth and jaws are developing – not all problems are easily visible to the casual observer. Finally, knowing whether or not future orthodontic treatment or braces will be likely can help families budget for the future.CollapseARE THERE ANY ALTERNATIVES TO BRACES?Unfortunately, there aren’t many alternatives to braces, but there are alternatives to the metal braces that many people immediately picture. You can get clear or tooth-colored brackets and wires , which make braces much less noticeable. Some patients are also eligible for Invisalign clear aligners instead of traditional braces. There are also other types of removable appliance that can help align teeth.There’s no set “best” age to get braces. For most kids, the best time for braces is generally between ages 10 and 14, when a child’s mouth and head are still growing and the permanent teeth are erupting. The exact time depends on growth and on how quickly a child’s adult teeth come in. However, braces can still be effective in older teenagers and adults.

WHAT DOES “PHASE I” AND “PHASE II” TREATMENT MEAN?Phase I, also known as “early intervention,” refers to orthodontic treatment that occurs before a child has all of their permanent teeth. This usually happens between ages 7 and 10. Phase I treatment hardly ever functions as a complete replacement for braces – its purpose is to fix problems that are most easily corrected at an early age and to make the Phase II treatment (braces) easier. To put it simply, Phase I takes care of the initial structural (skeletal) corrections so that braces can make more refined (dental) corrections and finish the job.Some orthodontic problems like underbites/crossbites, large over bites, severe crowding, severely protruded front teeth, and narrow jaws are easier to correct at a younger age. Early correction often leads to easier and more predictable treatment after all of the permanent teeth have erupted. Early intervention can also decrease the need to extract permanent teeth in the future, correct harmful habits like thumb-sucking, tongue-thrusting, and speech problems, reduce the risk of tooth trauma to protruded front teeth, eliminate the need for later corrective surgery, and reduce bullying caused by abnormally crooked teeth.Phase II, sometimes just called “active treatment,” consists of full braces. It’s designed to finish straightening the teeth and correcting the bite once all the permanent teeth have come inCollapseISN’T IT A WASTE OF MONEY TO START TREATMENT BEFORE MY KID’S EVEN LOST ALL THEIR BABY TEETH? CAN’T I JUST WAIT TO HAVE EVERYTHING DONE ONCE THEIR PERMANENT TEETH COME IN?Not necessarily. Many problems, including severe crowding, tooth eruption problems,open bitecrossbite, large over biteunderbite, narrow jaws, harmful habits, and severely protruded front teeth are much easier to correct at an early age. Delaying treatment for some orthodontic problems can lead to increased difficulty in correcting the problem, less stable results, abnormal jaw growth, abnormal tooth wear, or increased risk of chipping a tooth. Early intervention can also help permanent teeth come in properly (and is sometimes needed to give them room to come in at all). Finally, while early intervention does not eliminate the need for braces, it can reduce the patient’s time in braces when they’re older.HOW LONG DO PEOPLE HAVE TO WEAR BRACES?On average, most kids wear braces for 1 to 3 years, but this can vary greatly for each person based on growth and the severity of the problem. It also depends on the cooperation of the patient, including maintaining good oral hygiene, wearing auxiliaries such as rubber bands as directed, avoiding damaging food, and keeping all of their follow-up appointments.I’M ALREADY AN ADULT – SHOULD I BOTHER WITH BRACES?This is a subjective choice, but braces can still be quite effective for adults and modern styles are much less noticeable than the braces that many adults remember. In fact, about 20% of patients with braces are over 18. Many adults decide to get braces because they couldn’t afford them as a kid and now can, or because their teeth have shifted with age. Getting braces, even as an adult, can give you decades of more attractive straight teeth and correct serious structural problems, so many people see them as a worthwhile investment.CollapseWHY DO I NEED BRACES WHEN SOME KIDS ARE BORN WITH STRAIGHT TEETH?A common reason for needing braces is genetics. For many kids, their mouth is simply too small for their teeth, causing the teeth to crowd together. Crooked teeth and poor jaw growth can also be caused by harmful habits like thumb-sucking, oral posture (mouth breathing, lip-apart posture, “hanging” the mouth open), or early loss of teeth from tPossibly, but not necessarily. The mixed dentition stage where adult teeth are first starting to come in is known as the “ugly duckling” stage for teeth, so some crookedness can be normal. However, if you notice significant crowding, the chances that your kid will need braces are higher. Only an orthodontist can tell you for sure.ooth decay or injury.MY CHILD’S FRIENDS ALREADY HAVE BRACES, BUT THE ORTHODONTIST SAYS MY KID STILL ISN’T READY. WHY?Just CollapseOTHER THAN MAKING TEETH LOOK GOOD, ARE BRACES REALLY NECESSARILY?S 


Some adults do choose to get veneers instead of braces to serve as a purely cosmetic fix. However, these are quite expensive, may need to be replaced at some point in life, and do not actually correct any bite issues.


WHAT’S THE BEST AGE TO GET BRACES?






Phase I and II, kids may wear a retainer or space maintainer to maintain their progress, and should continue visiting their orthodontist so he or she can check on jaw and tooth development.

MY KID’S TEETH ARE COMING IN CROOKED - WILL THEY NEED BRACES?as children mature at different ages, their teeth and jaws mature at different ages. To be ready for full braces (sometimes known as Phase II treatment), kids generally need to have all of their permanent teeth. Early developers may have all of their permanent teeth (except wisdom teeth) by age 9, while late bloomers may not get them until age 14 or later. On average, girls’ mouths also develop slightly earlier than boys, and they tend to be ready for braces about 6-12 months sooner.people may get braces for mostly cosmetic reasons but there are also a number of health benefits to straighter teeth. Straight teeth are easier to clean well, which reduces tooth decay and gingivitis. Correcting the bite also fixes many structural problems, which can reduce jaw pain and make chewing less painful.
