What Are Braces?
Braces are used by your orthodontist to help you improve the look and feel of your smile. There are several different types of braces to choose from, including:
- Clear braces
- Ceramic braces
- Traditional metal braces

What are the Early Symptoms of Orthodontic Problems?
Have your child open their mouth and let you take a look at their teeth. If you see any signs of crookedness, gaps between the teeth or overlapping teeth, your child may need orthodontic treatment.
Ask your child to bite all the way down while keeping their lips open. Do the front top teeth line up with the bottom? Do the top teeth protrude away from the bottom teeth? Do the top front teeth
cover more than 50% of the bottom teeth? Are the top teeth behind the bottom teeth? All these are indicators for potential orthodontic treatment.
Look at the alignment of your child’s jaw. Does the jaw shift off center when they bite down? If you see any misalignment or shifting of the jaw, your child may have a skeletal problem, which requires early orthodontic intervention.
These are only some of the more obvious symptoms of orthodontic problems.
Can you be too old for braces?
When Is It Too Late to Get Braces?
flossing your teeth regularly is vital. At our dental clinic in Lucknow we also recommend that you check your progress and receive regular cleanings so your teeth won’t accumulate plaque and tartar.

How Can I Take Care of My Teeth If I’m Wearing Braces or A Retainer?
- ALWAYS remember to brush your teeth after every meal and floss at least once a day.
- Make sure to use toothpaste that contains fluoride, and ask your orthodontist or family dentist if you need a fluoride rinse. This will help prevent cavities!
- If you take out your retainer to eat, make sure you brush your teeth, floss, and remember to keep it safe in its container so that it does not get lost or broken.
- During your treatment, try to avoid foods with a lot of sugar, which increases the amount of bacteria that grows in your mouth, causing more plaque and possibly cavities.
- Avoid sticky and chewy foods (caramel, chewing gum, gummy bears), hard foods (hard candy, nuts, ice cubes), or any foods that could possibly get stuck in your braces (corn on the cob, soft bagels, ribs, taffy, etc.).
- Be sure to schedule your routine checkups with your family dentist. It is recommended that you continue to visit the dentist every six months.
