Dr. Jyothi offers orthodontic treatment for the correction of crowded teeth, misaligned, and crooked teeth. Orthodontic braces are generally prescribed during childhood to change the positioning of teeth. Adults can also wear braces to help improve their appearance and build confidence. There are two types of braces: Braces for Adults and Braces for Children. Braces help to align your teeth thereby preventing dental concerns such as tooth decay and gum diseases.
Orthodontic braces are generally prescribed during childhood between 9-14 years of age to change the positioning of teeth. Many adults can also have problems such as crowded teeth, misalignment, and crooked teeth. These issues can affect your confidence and the cosmetic appeal of your smile and even lead to various dental concerns such as tooth decay and gum diseases. Orthodontic braces can successfully correct all of these issues in adults with excellent results.
Children's teeth should be assessed by an orthodontist at the time the adult teeth begin to appear, which is around the age of 6 to 7 years. By this age, your child's teeth have developed enough to the point where subtle problems with jaw growth and emerging teeth can be assessed and treated early.
