The Way It Should Be
Orthodontics involves correcting the placement of teeth, usually referred to as braces. They can be removable or bonded to the teeth.
Orthodontics today has been expanded to treat a wide variety of cases for pre-teens as well as adults. In fact, almost 30 percent of orthodontic patients are adults. Centennial Dental Hamilton has treated numerous cases with orthodontics.
Orthodontics were first applied in treating only pre-teens experiencing problems with malocclusion (improper bites) resulting from tooth irregularity, disproportionate jaw relationships or both. It does pay to begin orthodontic treatment as early as possible though, in order to achieve the best desired results. Both the American and Canadian Dental Association (ADA/CDA), advise that children should be evaluated for orthodontic treatment by the age of seven years old.

Dental braces can be used to correct malocclusions such as overbites, open bites, cross bites, under bites, crooked teeth, rotated teeth etc. Dental braces are also often paired with other orthodontic devices such as expanders in cases where the patient’s palate is too narrow.
Many adults who haven’t had the chance to receive treatment in the past are now taking the initiative to acquire the smile they’ve always wanted. While adult bites can certainly be treated and corrected, it does pay to begin dental braces at a younger age. Both American and Canadian Dental Associations recommend that patients in need of orthodontic treatment undergo evaluation by the time they reach seven years old. As we age so do our teeth, and so they can become more difficult to move as we grow older.
