Treatment with Braces
What are the potential risks?
Braces and extracting teeth in teenage years does not solve the underlying causes of crooked teeth and incorrect facial development.
Orthodontics with braces has been used for decades to straighten teeth in early teens when all the permanent teeth have appeared, and although effective in forcing the teeth into straighter alignment, it's important to recognise that there are well-documented disadvantages. Along with leaving the underlying causes of crooked teeth untreated, traditional orthodontic techniques have several other risks or limitations including surgery, enamel and root damage as well as the high likelihood of relapse, unless a permanent commitment is made to wearing a fixed or removable retainer.
- The most up-to-date evidence reveals hereditary factors or big teeth in small jaws are not responsible for crowded teeth or incorrect jaw development.
- Myobrace treatment focuses on addressing the underlying causes of crooked teeth and correcting the poor oral habits causing orthodontic problems.
- With good compliance Myobrace treatment can offer more than just straighter teeth, allowing children to reach their full genetic potential.
