Misplaced teeth or an "improper bite" can not only detract from people's smiles; but may also lead to tooth decay, gum disease and eventual early tooth loss. For these, among other reasons everyone should have an orthodontic check-up at least once, the ideal age for which would be 7 years, though age is not a bar for treatment with braces.
With the latest cutting-edge Orthodontic technology today; young patients, teenagers, as well as adults can feel good about how they look with braces.
Fully-programmed Metal Braces are now much smaller than they used to be.
Even less noticeable are Esthetic Tooth-Colored Braces.
In some instances, braces can also be placed on the inside surfaces of teeth, so they are not seen at all.
For those that actually want to be noticed, braces now come in a variety of fun options such as Gold Braces if you want to make a style statement; or with accessories in every imaginable color, to suit your mood.
Youngsters actually look forward to orthodontic treatment if their braces come in some really cool shapes and designs – star, soccer ball, heart, flower etc.
