Orthodontic braces are most desirable for people under the age of 18. At this stage in life, the bone is more malleable, teeth move easier and are more likely to stay in place once the bone ‘remodels” around the newly positioned teeth. Many adults also wear braces, however, they are most likely to wear them a longer period of time and require a permanent retainer to hold the new positioning. Braces also require monthly office visits for adjustment. Braces may reposition teeth but will not affect the shape and color of the teeth.
For some patients an orthotic may be used to spread the jaw to make room for straightening the teeth.
