Braces are the common term for traditional orthodontic treatment to straighten teeth. The use of brackets and wires to straighten teeth is a tried and tested method with great results. Wearing braces not only improves crooked teeth but also improves oral hygiene and prevents further teeth wear from poor positioning.
Braces are suitable for all ages from 7 to 70+. Obviously treatment plans will greatly differ between various ages but the point is patients of any age can achieve a lovely straight smile.
Ascot Vale Smiles can advise you regarding which treatment modality is right for you.
- Ages 7-16 - phase 1 growth modification treatment - to make subsequent orthodontics more predictable
- Ages 10-21 - fixed orthodontic treatment
- Ages 21+ - fixed orthodontic treatment is usually ideal but aesthetic options such as Invisalign® and lingual orthodontics & social 6 may be considered
