Braces/ Orthodontic Treatment

Consult Us about your child:

  1. If the baby tooth does not erupt until one year of age
  2. If the milk tooth is lost but not replaced by the permanent tooth
  3. If you are concerned about your your child's bite
  4. If there is crowding of the teeth
  5. If large gaps exist between the teeth
  6. If the front teeth are too far forward
  7. If the child continues to suck this thumb beyond 3 years of age
  8. If the child is habitual to the use of pacifiers

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. Consult our orthodontist in Delhi for invisible braces.
