Braces are located in the upper and lower jaws in the field of orthodontics, which are attached to correct the disorders in the jaw and create a beautiful smile. It is extremely important that the braces treatment is performed at the right time. Especially in childhood, this treatment will help to get healthy results. It is possible to apply this treatment for the individual after reaching a certain age. Effective results will be obtained with the application of braces treatment to patients in older age group, but it is not expected to produce as effective results as those in childhood. In case of a possible need for an operation in individuals in childhood, the person should be examined between the ages of 10 and 12. According to this examination, necessary operations should be started. If a defect in the jaw structure is noticed, it should not be postponed and examination and necessary procedures should be performed. Braces treatment, which starts at younger ages, takes a much shorter time and gives very good results.

These criteria determine how long the braces should stay. The duration of braces treatment is different in each case. Despite the young age of the patient, it takes a minimum of 2 to 2 and a half year in case of skeletal disorder. In the absence of skeletal disorder, it varies between 10 and 24 months. In case of larger structural defects, the duration of treatment may be prolonged.

      Tooth movements in adult patients are much heavier than in children. In addition, other treatments other than braces may be required in adults with skeletal disorders. In general, braces treatments may take an average of 1 to 2 years.

      Do Braces Make Stains?

      In individuals who pay attention to oral care throughout the treatment, tooth decay and sensitivity are not encountered. If adequate and careful oral care is performed, there will be no staining or decay on the teeth after braces treatment. After the treatment, staining and tooth decay are observed in individuals who do not pay much attention to oral care.

In other words, these wires, also called invisible wires, consist of ceramic and white colors. Apart from these, there are also braces attached to the back of the teeth. The production purposes of these wires are based on satisfying patients with problematic teeth and aesthetic concerns.
