If you have poorly aligned teeth, then visit a Ottawa Dentist to learn about the newest orthodontic options. Many older adults were unable to wear braces because the devices were expensive and required a long treatment time. Today, there are braces that can repair your teeth in a shorter amount of time. At a dental office, you will have a complete examination with medical images to determine if you need to wear aligners or braces. Aligners are designed for mild malocclusions, and the devices are worn for six months to one year. Alternatively, if you have serious malocclusions, then you must wear braces instead for two to four years.
