Braces are wire based orthodontics used to correct misaligned teeth and/or bite related issues. They’re particularly effective at tackling difficult cases and are recommended for patients struggling with severe crowding, crossbites, and pronounced overbites. The majority of individuals who get braces are adolescents, though the treatment has grown increasingly popular among adults who are seeking to correct unresolved orthodontic issues from their childhood. Even with regular oversight from your orthodontist, it’s important to maintain your braces at home to ensure they remain in working order. Be sure to brush and floss after every meal, avoid problematic foods like taffy and gummy bears and wear a mouthguard while participating in contact sports.
