Dental braces are used to correct teeth that are crowded, crooked, protruding, out of alignment or have irregular spacing. By moving the teeth into the ideal position, braces help to create a more attractive and healthier smile for both children and adults. Children are not the only ones who may benefit from dental braces; even adults can undergo orthodontic treatment. The process for moving teeth is basically the same at any age, but the treatment may take longer for adults. A person typically inherits tooth spacing, malocclusion, crowding or similar problems from their parents. However, these conditions also may be caused by habits such as thumb-sucking, tongue thrusting, lip wedging, mouth breathing due to allergies or enlarged tonsils and adenoids. The permanent teeth generally begin to appear between the ages of 6-14 years; hence an orthodontic evaluation should begin at that age. Traditional braces are of many types - metal, tooth-coloured (ceramic) or clear. Invisible braces are absolutely clear and often selected for cosmetic reasons.
