Clips (braces) can be put at any age. Based on the condition like spaces between teeth or forwadly placed teeth, the duration of the treatment may range from 1to 1 and half year. And after that a device called retention appliance which is invisible should be worn for 6 months.
You have various options that include
- metal braces
- ceramic braces ( white )
- invisible braces.
