Braces Treatment For Children
The American Association of Orthodontists The American Association of Orthodontists recommends children be seen by the orthodontist at age 8 This is an ideal time to start treatment for children with misaligned teeth or any other orthodontic problems. The time is not necessarily based on age, but on the stage of the child’s development. Certain problems, like jaw underdevelopment, may require treatment at the tender age of seven, with a second stage of orthodontics after all their permanent teeth come in.
Treatment For Adults
Does the word braces call to mind a teenager with a mouth full of metal? If so, it’s time to rethink that picture. Many people think orthodontic appliances are meant only for children and teenagers. The truth is more adults than ever are choosing to improve their smile through realignment. Crowded or overlapping teeth can be difficult to clean, making tooth decay and gum disease more likely and as such, These problems raise more than cosmetic concerns.
Although orthodontics is similar for adults as for children, they’ve gotten better for everyone. There are numerous options for braces that are less noticeable and easier to maintain.

Ceramic dental braces (also sometimes called white, esthetic or clear braces) are a form of conventional orthodontic appliance made up of brackets bonded to your individual teeth and an archwire that runs across them.
Their fundamental difference simply lies in the fact that the bracket used is made out of a ceramic compound instead of metal, which means that they can be clear or tooth-colored (white) instead of shiny metal. This difference helps to make the patient’s braces less obvious to others and generally more aesthetic in nature
Metal braces are the traditional braces commonly worn by most people seeking orthodontic treatment. These tend to work best, but they are visible. They can be used to treat all orthodontic problems, including issues with misaligned bites or jaws and crooked teeth.
