The purpose of orthodontic treatment is to make the best of your teeth.
This includes straightening your teeth so you’re able to care for your teeth and gums more easily, and improving your bite so you can eat more comfortably. And your smile will benefit, too.
Treatment almost always involves using braces to straighten crooked, crowded or protruding teeth, close gaps between teeth, and correct the bite so the top and bottom teeth meet when the mouth is closed.
What’s the best age to have braces?
The ideal age to have braces is usually around 12 or 13, while a child’s mouth and jaws are still growing.
The opportunity for improvement in an adult is more limited and treatment is likely to take longer.
