Frequently Asked Questions About Orthodontic Services at Canarsie Dental Office

What age should someone start orthodontic treatment?

Orthodontic treatment can begin at any age, but the American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children have their first orthodontic evaluation by the age of 7. Early evaluation helps identify issues that may be easier to correct if caught early.

Are braces only for children and teenagers?

No, adults can benefit from braces too. Adult orthodontic treatment is becoming increasingly popular, and we offer a variety of options that are suitable for different age groups, including discreet treatments like Invisalign®.

What are the benefits of Invisalign® over traditional braces?

Invisalign® offers the advantage of being almost invisible, which many patients find appealing for aesthetic reasons. The aligners are also removable, making it easier to eat, brush, and floss. They can provide a more comfortable fit as they do not involve metal brackets or wires.

How long does orthodontic treatment typically last?

The duration of orthodontic treatment varies based on individual cases, but typically, treatment can last between 12 to 36 months. Your orthodontist will provide a more accurate timeline based on your specific needs.

What is surgical orthodontics?

Surgical orthodontics, also known as orthognathic surgery, is used to correct severe cases of misalignment involving the jaw that cannot be resolved with braces alone. It is usually considered when the jaws do not line up correctly, affecting the ability to chew, speak, and breathe properly.

Can I play sports with braces?

Yes, you can play sports with braces, but it is highly recommended that you wear a mouthguard to protect your braces and your mouth from potential impacts.

How do I care for my teeth if I have braces or aligners?

Good oral hygiene is crucial during orthodontic treatment. If you have braces, you’ll need to brush and floss regularly and carefully to remove food particles and prevent plaque buildup. For aligners, you should clean them regularly according to the instructions provided by your orthodontist.

Are there any food restrictions with braces?

Yes, with traditional braces, you should avoid hard, sticky, or chewy foods that can damage the brackets and wires. Foods like popcorn, nuts, hard candies, and gum should be avoided during treatment.

What happens after my braces are removed?

After your braces are removed, you will likely need to wear a retainer to maintain your new tooth alignment. The type of retainer and how long you’ll need to wear it will depend on your specific treatment plan.
