You might be wondering, exactly how long you will need to wear orthodontic braces.
Orthodontic braces are used to treat crooked or crowded teeth; the use of braces administered at our Amherstburg dental office will assist in creating beautiful & healthy looking smiles. Untreated crooked or crowded teeth make teeth cleaning a difficult process. If proper oral hygiene is not implemented, tooth decay, gingivitis, and even the possibility of tooth loss at an early age may be the result.
Orthodontic braces are used to straighten teeth and correct the jaw line; this treatment is customized for each patient and most patients will wear the braces for a period 2 to 3 years. It is very important to maintain good oral hygiene and schedule regular visits with your dentist to ensure the braces are applying the correct pressure to the teeth; this, along with the severity of the problem will determine exactly how long you will have to wear the braces.
