Below you’ll find answers to the questions we get asked the most about mini braces.
Patients say it takes up to a few weeks to get used to mini braces. However, for most patients, it happens in a matter of days.
Mini braces are more comfortable than traditional braces. Made of high-grade stainless steel, mini metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. Mini braces do not go around the tooth so you can avoid cavities and other dental problems associated with that type of braces.
It takes some getting used to because the brackets are fitted closer to the tongue. But once you have adjusted, you can certainly eat most foods while avoiding hard, sticky, and crunchy ones.
Mini braces start at £1,200 to £3,000. You can, however, talk to a Park Orthodontist about plans and financing.
Start by holding the toothbrush at a 45-degree angle and gently brushing along the gum line. Next, shift the angle of the toothbrush so that you can carefully brush the tops of your brackets. Then, reposition the toothbrush so you can brush under the brackets and wire. Be sure to clean each tooth.
Everyone has a different set of teeth and will have different orthodontic needs. Typically, between 6 and 30 months is considered a standard treatment.
To ensure your teeth alignment progresses well, you need to see your orthodontist every 6 to 8 weeks for adjustments.
It may take some getting used to, but braces should not stop you from participating in school activities such as singing or playing an instrument. If you participate in sports, you should wear a mouthguard.
There's no set "best" age to get mini braces. For most kids, the best time for mini braces is generally between ages 10 and 14, when a child's mouth and head are still growing, and the permanent teeth are erupting. The exact time depends on growth and how quickly a child's adult teeth come in. However, mini braces can still be effective in older teenagers and adults.
Many adults get mini braces because they couldn't afford them as a kid and now can or because their teeth have shifted with age. Even as an adult, getting mini braces can give you decades of more attractive straight teeth and correct serious structural problems, so many people see them as a worthwhile investment.
