Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that focuses on the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of misaligned teeth and jaws.
Orthodontic treatment can improve the appearance of your smile, enhance your oral health, and improve your overall quality of life.
Orthodontic treatment can be started at any age, but it is generally recommended to start treatment during childhood or early adolescence when the teeth and jaws are still developing.
The duration of orthodontic treatment varies depending on the severity of the misalignment, but most treatments take between 12-24 months.
Orthodontic treatments can cause some discomfort, but it is usually mild and can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.
You will need to visit the orthodontist every 4-6 weeks during treatment to have your braces adjusted or to receive new aligners.
It is important to brush and floss regularly and to avoid sticky and hard foods that can damage your braces or aligners.
After orthodontic treatment is complete, you will need to wear a retainer to maintain the results of the treatment.
