¿Cuál es el mejor momento para los frenos?

Los pacientes con problemas ortodónticos se pueden beneficiar del tratamiento casi a cualquier edad.Los pacientes con problemas ortodónticos se pueden beneficiar del tratamiento casi a cualquier edad. El tiempo ideal para poner los frenos es entre las edades de los 10 a los 14 años, mientras la cabeza y la boca están creciendo todavía y los dientes son más fáciles de enderezar. Sin embargo, ya que cualquier ajuste en la apariencia de la cara puede ser traumático para un niño durante estos años sensitivos, los padres deben hablar del asunto con sus hijos antes de que se le pongan los frenos. Y los frenos no son sólo para niños. Más y más adultos están usando frenos también para corregir problemas menores y para mejorar sus sonrisas.

El dentista generalmente recomienda los frenos para mejorar la apariencia "orofacial" física del paciente. Por medio del tratamiento ortodóntico, se corrigen los problemas como los dientes torcidos o apretujados, las sobremordidas o mordidas abiertas, la posición incorrecta de la mandíbula y trastornos de las articulaciones de la mandíbula.
