How Old Should My Child Be Before I Taken Them To See An Orthodontist?

The American Academy of Orthodontics (AAO) encourages every parent to take their child by the age of 7 to see an orthodontist. When problems are detected while the teeth and jaw are still going through their growth stage, the chances of a better result from treatment increase.

Can An Adult Have Orthodontic Treatment?

Of course! Although faster results are achieved if problems are detected at a young age, it’s never too late to have orthodontic treatment to get the perfect smile.

If I’m Wearing Braces How Can I Look After My Teeth?

If you maintain a good oral hygiene regime, orthodontic treatment is more likely to be successful. Brush thoroughly after every snack and meal and take care to floss regularly.

Must I Wear Elastics?

The rubber bands, or elastics, give the essential extra pressure needed to move your teeth into the right position. For orthodontics to be successful, constant time and pressure are needed. If you don’t wear elastics, it’ll take much longer to get the perfect teeth you desire.

What Is A 2-Phase Orthodontic Treatment?

A 2-phase treatment is a reference to the two time periods during which a child might require orthodontics. The initial phase will usually be carried out while the child still has the majority of their baby teeth. Braces aren’t always required during this phase, with palate expanders, retainers, headgear and other appliances being used instead. During the second treatment phase, the patient will have their adult teeth and the treatment will correct their position.

What Is A Palatal Expansion?

The term “palatal expansion” refers to widening your upper jaw to allow for proper bite (or occlusion) between the lower and upper jaw. If palatal expansion is required, you’ll see results rapidly with changes being noticed within weeks.
