Braces hatne ke teen saal bad bhi hum fixed retainer lagwa sakte hain kya? Please advice.
Yes you can if you want, but there is no point getting fixed retainer after 3 years. Retainers should be placed immediately after completion of your treatment. It is to retain your teeth in the new position. If you get them after 6 moths also, there is no point. NOT ADVISABLE and NO POINT getting retainers after a lag period following your ortho treatment.

You need to wear retainers for 9 months post braces 3 to 6 months 24 hours that is to be removed only while eating food .rest you need to wear it on regular basis. N last three months only at night .teeth might have shifted from its original place that's why. You might need to wear retainers again and post that you might need to come for check up.

I am 23, I am wearing adult braces for 1 year now.in the past few months, after the gaps between my teeth are getting closed, some of my teeth is getting elevated. Like a little crooked, and uneven level from other teeth. Is this normal? Or some mistake done by my orthodontist?

As the treatment is ongoing, I would suggest you to get a clarity for the same from your orthodontist. Might be a part of correction of the malallignment. Pre-operative pictures are required to help you better.

There is no age limit. Only if the problem is due to jaw alignment then it can be difficult to treat but otherwise the tooth movement is same in all ages.

Hello, the price range for braces varies from clinician to clinician and majorly by the kind of braces you are looking for. Least expensive are usually the metal braces, then the ceramic, then self ligating, then cums lingual braces and recent ones being the invisaligns are the most expensive ones. So you can check with your dentist and find out which one suits you the best depending upon your work profile and finding the right specialist for self ligating, lingual and invisaligns.
