How Dental Braces for Adults Work
Many people enter adulthood with complex orthodontic issues such as bite problems, large gaps between teeth or crowding that were not addressed when they were a child or teen and decide to correct them with braces.
These orthodontic appliances gradually move your teeth into new positions in small increments over time. A bracket can be applied to each tooth before your orthodontist inserts a wire across a row of teeth.
You'll get to choose from a few different types of braces. Generally, elastic bands may be attached to brackets to hold teeth in place if required. These will be stretched between your upper and lower teeth to correct specific issues.
While everyone's treatment time varies depending on their specific needs and orthodontic problem, most people have braces for about 2 years. You'll typically meet with your orthodontist every 6 to 8 weeks to the braces can be adjusted, to monitor your treatment progress and to have any concerns addressed.
