Braces for adults and teens are for those combating the challenges of having crooked teeth. Dentists and orthodontists have been helping patients in getting braces to set their teeth straight and regular. The process to fix braces for adults and teens might differ from case to case. While dentists help with just the basic alignment and orthodontics, the orthodontists are the ones who specialize in doing away with teeth irregularities. These dentists and orthodontists prescribe the right type of braces depending on the type of teeth. The braces comprise of bands and wires. They also include some kind of fixed or removable corrective appliances. The braces apply pressure for a continuous period of time, which slowly moves the teeth in a specific direction. With the teeth movement, the bone also changes its shape with pressure being applied. Youngsters can also use aligners made of a smooth plastic, which remain invisible. Some braces can be easily removed whenever you want so that you can eat freely and brush or floss. This helps in maintaining better oral hygiene. For adults, orthodontists encourage the replacement of braces made of virtually invisible plastic. These re-placements have no irritating brackets or wires. Also, there are no food restrictions while wearing such aligners. Meanwhile, those patients who are undergoing adult orthodontics treatment do face higher risk for root reabsorption than the children/teens. It's because their body reabsorbs the root of a tooth, while leaving the tooth without anchorage.
