Why do people still need to wear braces when there is Invisalign?

While Invisalign is great way to correct mild teeth mal-alignment, it has its limitation being a removable appliance. Conventional braces are needed for people with more severe mal-alignment and mal-occlusion.

Braces is still the most efficient and effective way to straighten teeth and correct bite.

At what age can orthodontic treatment start?

Sometimes it is optimal to start orthodontic treatment as early as age of 8, to help alleviate issues as your child grows. Other times it would be necessary to wait until your child is older and has all their permanent teeth before braces.

At Middleborough Dental Care, we will assess your child every six months during their check-up visit.

I’m in my 30s, am I too old for braces?

More and more adults are opting orthodontic treatment nowadays. Our dentists will need to assess your gum health and history of crown and bridge work prior to planning for orthodontic treatment.

Adult patients usually opt for tooth-coloured, ceramic braces and a shorter treatment time.

Do braces cause any pain?

The process of putting braces on is not painful at all. However, your mouth might feel a bit sore for a few days straight after having the braces first put on. It usually takes one week to fully adjust to eating normally with braces on.

How long does the treatment take?

Braces treatments can take between 12 to 30 months, depending on each individual. Generally, it has been shortened due to the advancement of new dental material, digital radiography and computer-aided design.
