It is the part that regulates the dysregulation disorders of the teeth and the relationships of the jaws with each other (Wire therapy). Lingual orthodontics (invisible braces) is an excellent option for those who care about the appearance of teeth, who do not feel comfortable in traditional brackets, who want to beautify their smile and maintain their professional appearance.
Lingual braces can be applied at any age, but for lingual braces to be used, the teeth and gums must be extremely healthy. Just like normal brackets, lingual brackets cause discomfort for a week or two. At the end of the first week, the tongue becomes fully accustomed to the presence of wires.
What is the best age for wire treatment? Is there an age limit?
It’s not right to give an exact age. Only an orthodontist can decide that. Because the age of treatment can vary for each patient. While some jaw disorders should be treated as early as possible, 10-12 years may be appropriate for dental disorders. This is why periodic examinations are important. In some disorders, it is very important not to miss the child’s growth and development attack. Your child will grow only once and this period can only be used once orthodontically, there is no second chance. Thus, a surgical operation that may be required in the future is prevented.
There is no age limit for orthodontic treatments. Treatment of disorders that can only be corrected by dental movement is possible without surgery at any age as long as the tissues surrounding the teeth are healthy. Depending on whether the patient is a child, teenager or adult, the only thing that changes is the type of treatment.
