Dental braces are wire-based appliances used by orthodontists to align the crowded and misaligned teeth to their appropriate position. Apart from correcting misaligned teeth, the braces can also aid in jaw correction and improving your chewing ability.

How Do Dental Braces Work?
Braces work by applying gentle forces on the teeth. Due to the pressure placed, the teeth start moving to the required position. We will adjust your dental braces on a regular basis to ensure that your teeth move correctly and efficiently. While the average treatment time is between 18 and 24 months, it may vary from one person to another. After removing the braces, we will recommend wearing retainers to stop your teeth from moving further.
When Is The Best Time To Start Wearing Dental Braces?
Braces can be worn by both children and adults. Our orthodontists recommend parents to bring their kids to our dental clinic for an initial assessment as soon as they see the signs and symptoms of misaligned teeth. Beginning the treatment at the early stage avoids the need for a more complex dental procedure. Adult patients can start wearing braces at any age, but it takes a longer time to see some good results as they have denser bone structure than the little ones.
At A1 Dental Clinic, we believe that good orthodontic treatment begins with clear communication.
