Braces And Aligners
Braces are recommended to align the teeth in a uniform manner. They are useful to correct the following problems:
- Close gaps in between teeth
- Align twisted/overlapping/crowded teeth in a straight manner
- Push back buck/protruding teeth
And thus, they prevent speech problems, improve chewing capacity, and prevent periodontal deterioration due to misaligned teeth.
Orthodontic treatment is most commonly done during the teens, however adult orthodontics constitutes a significant proportion of an orthodontic practice. There is no age restriction for getting orthodontic treatment done to achieve the smile you desire.

Frequently Asked Questions
If you want to improve the appearance and feel of your smile, you may consult an orthodontist at any age. Although the American Association of Orthodontists suggests that children see an orthodontist around the age of seven, orthodontic treatment is not limited to children and teenagers.
Braces do not often hurt, though you may feel a small amount of discomfort for a couple days as your teeth, gums, cheeks, and mouth get used to your new braces.
With braces, you should brush your teeth at least three times a day to keep your teeth, gums, and mouth healthy and clean. Brushing regularly will help remove any food that may be caught between your braces.
You should also floss daily to get between your braces where your brush isn’t able to reach. Dr. Willes can show you how to brush and floss properly once your braces are placed.
