Orthodontics for Children
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends visiting the orthodontist around age seven years although there is no fix age.
Some bad shaped teeth need to be corrected at early age between 7 to 12 years. Also some problems need to be corrected early like thumb sucking, tongue thrusting and mouth breathing.
By this age, most children have a mix of baby teeth and adult teeth, making it easier for the orthodontist to correct teeth and jaw problems.
Orthodontic treatment is no longer just for kids and teens. The American Association of Orthodontists states that one in five orthodontic patients is over the age of 21. Many adults are choosing to receive braces treatment because they understand the importance of maintaining their health, and they want to feel better about their appearance and they become financially independent at this age. Dr Pupneja at Faces n Smiles see lot of patients doing jobs and living independently and undergoing invisible braces treatment like lingual braces and Invisalign.
Common reasons why Adults consider braces treatment:
- Getting their teeth corrected before marriage for beautiful smile
- Grinding of teeth or sensitivity of teeth due to bad bite
- Desire for a more confident smile
- Females usually develop gaps in the teeth after pregnancy
- Second time treatment: relapse occurred after braces treatment, opted for cheaper braces treatment done by general dentists earlier
At Faces n Smiles, many senior citizens have opted Invisalign treatment from Dr Pankaj Pupneja for their bad bite leading to pain in their teeth
