How Long Will I Have To Wear Braces?
The time required for braces always varies from person to person.
On average, once the braces are put on, they usually remain in place for one to three years.
After the braces are removed, most patients will need to wear a retainer all the time for the first six months, and then only during sleep for some time thereafter.
Does Patient Age Affect The Success of Braces?
The mechanical process used to move teeth with braces is the same at any age. So the benefits of orthodontic treatments are available to both children and adults who wish to improve their bite and appearance.
Can I Continue to Play Sports While Wearing Braces?
You can continue to participate in any sport you choose with braces. When playing sports where there is a possibility of getting hit in the mouth, a specially designed mouthguard will need to be worn.
