The ideal age to start the orthodontic treatment is the early adolescent age of 10-14 years when the baby teeth fall out and the mouth and face are still under the developmental phase. This makes the teeth correction process easier through braces pressure created by brackets and wires, or other appliances.

Patients having crowded and crooked teeth with severe bad bites causing many oral health problems like eating, talking, and breathing issues point out that Orthodontic braces are required.

Orthodontic treatment is based on the braces either fixed or removable ones. Both create pressure on the teeth and jaws to move them into correct positioning.

Yes, metal braces do interfere with playing sports. All you need to do is to wear the mouthguard as prescribed by the orthodontist at the time of you playing sports to be on the safe side from any braces emergency that the sports may cause you.

Sugary, hard, sticky, and crunchy food should be strictly avoided with braces on to have bacteria-free braces and ensure effective results.

The discomfort with braces is only found at the time of the attachment process. Moreover, in the first week, a little soreness and irritation may be felt. However, after the first week of braces attachment the discomfort level reduces.
