Case Study: Corrective Braces

In cases where children have an uneven bite, early intervention with a corrective removable brace is recommended. Jaw training appliances can encourage new bone growth to push forward and correct the bite. These devices can be worn on both upper and lower teeth from age 6 and later changed for a fixed brace around age 12, potentially avoiding the need for later jaw surgeries.

Treatment undertaken:

The length of time needed to wear corrective braces varies depending on the severity of the misalignment, with treatment ranging from several months to a few years. Corrective braces can help improve both the appearance and function of the teeth and jaws, leading to better oral health and a more confident smile.
