Braces are used in orthodontic practices to straighten teeth and create a more aesthetically appealing smile. Braces are also used to correct gaps, overbites, and other dental imperfections.
Typically, kids are ready to get braces as early as age seven. Usually, parents will recognize their child’s needs for braces by observing their outer teeth structure, although there are many orthodontic problems that cannot be observed without x-rays.
