Orthodontic braces treatments are available to patients of all ages. Almost 1/2 of of orthodontic braces patients are adults. In terms, if braces for children, in accordance with the American Association of Orthodontists, The Gelb Center recommends that children have their first orthodontic evaluation by the age of 3-4. With early evaluation and diagnosis, children can achieve optimal orthodontic results.
Early treatment provides a range of benefits and often means that a patient can avoid surgery or other serious complications. There is, of course, no age limit for orthodontic treatment as both children and adults benefit from orthodontic braces. As such, our office accommodates orthodontic patients of all ages.
There are two major types of orthodontic braces for adults and kids: fixed braces and removable braces. There are also very popular contemporary treatments such as “invisible” braces, Invisalign, and traditional (visible) braces. If you are a candidate for braces, our orthodontists will recommend the type of braces that are best suited for you.
For the vast majority of our Upper East Side NYC orthodontic braces patients, wearing fixed appliances (commonly called braces) will be a major part of their orthodontic treatment — and those braces, for the most part, will be the familiar silvery-metal type. But while they’re still quite popular, traditional-looking metal braces are no longer the only game in town. Let’s have a look at some of the contemporary options available in orthodontic appliances.
