People have their teeth
straightened for a variety of
reasons. These include:
Dental health is the most important
reason to have braces made as poorly
aligned or crooked teeth are difficult
to keep clean. They often give rise to
decay and gum problems. For most
people, orthodontic treatment with
braces is an elective procedure. It is
rare that teeth will be lost if treatment
has not started.
There is no age limit
for orthodontic treatment – adults can
benefit from it too.
There are alternative solutions to
orthodontic problems. These are
prosthodontic treatments using tooth
veneers, crowns, bridges or dentures
or no treatment at all. The orthodontist
will discuss the risks and benefits of
each alternative with you.
