By using orthodontic treatments can also benefit your overall oral health. Having properly aligned teeth can help prevent future dental issues like tooth decay and gingivitis, especially since brushing and flossing become easier.

The length of orthodontic treatment varies for each patient. The treatment length depends on the severity of your particular orthodontic concerns. With orthodontic treatments, nine to twelve months is considered an average timeframe for clear aligners to do their job.
I AM AN ADULT, IS ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT JUST FOR TEENAGERS?
This answer to this is NO! There is no age limit on wanting to have a perfect smile. Yes, it is ideal that orthodontic cases are treated earlier in life but many adults are taking advantage of today’s treatment options that were not available in previous years.

With orthodontic procedures such as braces, your treatment should be relatively pain-free. While some patients do report a temporary discomfort at each new stage, this typically goes away after just a couple of days.

This necessity is typically quite rare, so depending on your individual case, teeth extraction may be necessary to make enough room for your treatment to work properly. However, this will be thoroughly discussed with you by your dentist.
