hello after the braces treatment you need to visit a dentist every 3 weeks and maintenance is required. better not to plan now. you can do it after the child is 1.5 year because it needs time and dedication.

Hello... U can wear braces.. but in case u wanna straighten ur teeth without braces is also possible.. 2. Radiographs are taken only for confirmation if there are any submerged teeth. 4. U cannot stereotype ur treatment timing it can finish faster also. This depends on the amount of discripency 5. Being a adult u can also undergo Lingual braces so that u can avoid showing braces.. 6. Braces as such doesn't affect labour pain but good oral hygiene maintenance is necessary.. With regards Dr Bala Orthodontist Kilpauk-Chennai

Hi If you have braces where something which is comfortable on your teeth like aligners which is removable and still does the job considering you might have issues more important like pregnancy
