Braces

Do you want straight teeth that will make you or your child feel confident and proud to smile? Braces can achieve this!

What are Braces?

Braces are the traditional orthodontic treatment used to straighten crooked teeth. Braces are a combination of wires, brackets and removable elastics which gradually shift the teeth in the right direction. While they are traditionally metal and silver, there are now a range of other options including clear and coloured braces which are barely noticeable.

Braces for Children

If you think your child has crooked teeth we recommend visiting allsmiles Dental Centre so that we can discuss orthodontic options for your child. Keep in mind that your child won’t be able to be fitted for braces until they have lost all of their baby teeth (around 12 or 13 years of age). Regular visits to the dentist are still required to ensure your child’s optimum oral health and to guide the growth of your child’s smile.

How long does the treatment last?

The length of treatment entirely depends on your teeth. Your dentist will sit down with you and discuss the approximate treatment time while helping you resolve any concerns. Keep in mind that, as adult’s jaw bone is denser, treatment time for adults will likely be longer than that for children.
