Today, dentistry has come up with treatments that can solve almost any oral problem. Orthodontics, or wearing a brace, is a means of altering and moving crooked teeth in order to achieve a more even and straighter smile.

Orthodontics (wearing a brace) is a treatment that is often associated with children and teenagers but many adults are also opting for this treatment in the later years of their life.

Wearing a brace is undergone mainly for the purpose of proportionally straightening or aligning crooked teeth.

If you are not happy with a crooked set of teeth, it is possible to correct this, no matter what age you are, by undertaking orthodontic treatment to better align them.

It may well be that you choose to wear a brace because your teeth appear unattractive and you would like a more attractive smile; Alternatively, it may be that you experience difficulties with speech or eating as a result of overcrowded or misaligned teeth and a brace may be recommended by your dentist.

Many aesthetic and functional dental problems can be solved with the help of orthodontics, as you can get your teeth repositioned through the use of braces.

Usually, the younger you choose to undergo orthodontic treatment, the better the success rate, although many adults do wear braces on their teeth and achieve good results.

Orthodontics needs to be carried out by a professional, usually an Orthodontist who specializes in this field of cosmetic dentistry.
It is therefore important for you to consult a reputable orthodontist before you decide to undergo any treatment.
