Straight teeth not only help improve self-esteem and confidence but also provide many oral health benefits. When teeth become crowded or improperly spaced, it can cause difficulty maintaining proper oral hygiene and increase the risk of gum disease and tooth loss.
Crowded or crooked teeth can wear unevenly faster than usual, causing a significant risk to the tooth structure. Properly aligned teeth create a better bite and reduce stress and strain that can cause headaches and jaw pain and the need for additional dental care.
What to Expect
A consultation with an orthodontist will determine if you’re a candidate for braces or orthodontic treatment. Some patients may be required to complete other dental treatments prior to getting braces. Your orthodontist can recommend the type of braces that will help you achieve the best results.
Braces treatment length can vary based on the complexity of your orthodontic case, your overall health, and your willingness to be a partner during the process with regular appointments and good at-home techniques. The process of getting braces involves:
- Initial consultation - Dentist referral to an orthodontist.
- Treatment planning - Discuss your plan and financial options.
- Records appointment - An orthodontist takes molds, photos, and X-rays.
- Banding completed - Get your braces on!
- Maintenance visits - Check-in with the orthodontist.
- Debanding - Learn how to take care of your new smile.
The debanding process consists of working with your orthodontist to learn how to care for your new smile. Following your aftercare routine is extremely important because it is what will keep your smile bright and straight. Be sure to see your dentist regularly for continued care.

As per the American Association of Orthodontists guidelines, Dynamic Dental recommends that children have their first orthodontic evaluation by the age of 7. With early evaluation and diagnosis, children can achieve optimal orthodontic results to avoid surgery or other complications in the future.
Typically, orthodontic treatment is no different for adults than it would be for children. However, because adult teeth have stopped growing, and are in their permanent position, it may take a bit longer for treatment than with a child. Depending on your specific case, you can expect to wear your braces or Invisalign aligners for any time from 6 months to 18 months or more.
