Everyone loves to have a good smile; and to a large extent, a good smile is not always about how you look, but rather, about your teeth. People with white, neatly arranged teeth always have great and infectious smiles; on the other hand, people with stained, and protruding, crowded or widely spaced teeth may not be so comfortable smiling broadly in public. Thank heavens, braces can help to straighten crowded or protruding teeth.

How do invisible braces work?

Invisible Braces are a set of aligners that are specifically designed for your teeth. They are worn over a duration of time to help dictate the direction and manner of your teeth movement. They help to gently but firmly straighten up teeth that need to be straightened.

What is the right time to start using braces?

Braces can be worn at any time regardless of your age. They tend to be more effective on children who are still young and developing. But even as a teenager or adult, braces can still be effective in helping to straighten your teeth.

Does it make any sense to get braces at old age?

Yes it does! Research has been conducted on various age groups, and it is found that braces are effective in all age groups. The biological processes involved in tooth movement, does not depend on the age of the patient.

The beauty of going for braces in the older age group, is that it is possible to use them without anyone even noticing. Thus you have nothing to lose trying them out; invisible braces will help you carry on normally with your life, while also helping to straighten your teeth. Regardless of the years you have been in this world, a year’s use of braces will surely bring huge changes to your smile.
