TYPES OF BRACES
Orthodontic appliances come in a variety of styles these days.
From the multi-colored rings that go around the metal wires to clear trays, < orthodontic treatment has advanced in more ways than you know.
Sometimes it is advantageous for children between ages 7-10 to undergo an early treatment of orthodontics. This is commonly known as a Phase I treatment. Indications for a Phase I treatment include anterior and/or posterior crossbites, extreme crowding, excessive overbite, and jaw disharmony. Another reason for starting an early treatment is to build self-confidence in a child who is very conscious about his or her smile. Phase I treatment usually lasts about 12 months. You must understand that accepting an early treatment does not eliminate a Phase II treatment. Phase I usually helps prepare for Phase II by eliminating the need for extractions at a future treatment.
Many adults are having orthodontic treatment to give them a brighter smile. About 25% of most practices are composed of adult treatment. This ranges from simple alignments with clear aligners to more complex treatments involving orthognathic surgery. Please don’t be alarmed; just because you have stopped growing does not mean that you are doomed to have extractions or will require having your jaw repositioned.
Most adults do not require extractions and with some cooperation using rubber bands can correct most problems. Adults of all ages are having treatment; you are never too old to consider improving your smile.
