Hi! I'm 17. Are Myobraces going to be effective at my age? The crowding of my teeth aren't really that severe, and my dentist told me if I were to use braces it would only take about 1-2 years.

  • The Myobraces are effective in the mixed dentition period That is from the age of 6 years to 12 years. as you are already 17 and all the teeth are adult teeth so myobraces are not very effective.You can discuss with your dentist and if after the clinical examination to see the type of malalignment you have,your dentist feels that it can be treated by braces then you can go for that. Otherwise there are so many options available like metal braces , cosmetic braces and invisalign.
