Orthodontic FAQ’s at Watson Orthodontics

Welcome to our Orthodontic FAQ page! Here we've compiled some of the most common questions that patients ask about orthodontic treatment. If you don't see an answer to your question below, please don't hesitate to contact us for more information.

Orthodontics is a type of dental treatment that focuses on correcting the alignment of teeth and jaws. It involves the use of devices such as braces and aligners to straighten teeth and improve bite function.

Orthodontic treatment can be done at any age, but the ideal age for treatment is between 10 and 14 years old. However, many adults also choose to undergo orthodontic treatment to improve their smiles and bite function.

Some common orthodontic problems include crowded teeth, spacing issues, overbite, underbite, and crossbite. These issues can cause discomfort, difficulty chewing, and self-consciousness about one's smile.

The length of treatment varies depending on the individual patient's needs and the type of treatment they receive. On average, orthodontic treatment lasts between 18-24 months.
