Having a lovely smile is a desired part of our appearance, and it usually means being the proud owner of gleaming and straight set of pearly whites or teeth. What happens when our teeth arent that well-aligned, or are, in other words, just plain crooked? Thats when an orthodontist comes in, with orthodontic treatment that includes dental braces. There are many horror stories about teenagers who wear braces being given a hard time at school and being taunted as metal mouth. However, todays braces can be much more subtle in appearance, and the end result is actually about more than a beautiful smile.

Straightening crooked teeth isnt just about beauty and vanity. Its also about good health. Irregularly positioned teeth are hard to clean and this can cause tooth decay as well as promote gum disease. Speech problems and damage to the jaw can also occur as a result of very crooked or crowded teeth. The ideal age for braces to do their desired job of straightening teeth is during childhood and adolescence, from the ages of about ten to sixteen. People as old as sixty years of age can also have successful results with braces, although those over the age of eighteen wont have as good an end result as younger people whose jaws, bones and teeth are still developing.

What about the man or woman behind the fitting of braces? What is he or she all about? An orthodontist has studied orthodontics, an advanced and specialized area of dentistry. Apart from the four years of university training needed to become a dentist, orthodontists need a further two years of study in subjects ranging from genetics to human development. The medical writings of ancient Greece and Rome refer to practising orthodontics, which is an ancient Greek word meaning correcting or straightening teeth. The first braces as we know them today, were designed by a French man, Pierre Fauchard, in 1728. They consisted of a flat metal strip that was connected to teeth by pieces of thread.

Now, braces come in many variations. They dont have to be metal or metallic-coloured. They can be made of a special softer substance and be either clear in colour, colourful or even resemble the colour of teeth. You can get removable braces or the more effective fixed type. The latter include metal bands that are cemented onto the teeth and metal brackets which are then glued to the front teeth. A wire connects the bands and sometimes rubber bands are used. Orthodontists gradually tighten the wires so that teeth slowly move into their correct position. The treatment lasts for about two years. Braces are not only for humans, as dogs can get them too, to correct crooked jaws and other dental disorders. So if you or a friend needs braces, brace yourself to embrace the wonderful health and beauty aid that they are!


1. In the past, braces used to be less obvious than they are today. 2. Crooked teeth can lead to gum disease.

3. All teenagers should wear braces.

4. The older you get, the better results you get by wearing braces. 5. It takes six years for someone to become an orthodontist.

6. Ancient Greeks were familiar with the science of orthodontics.
