The average orthodontic case is approximately 18-24 months and the average age of an orthodontic patient is 11-12 years old.In the past, a headgear was the main treatment for problems like buckteeth and excessive crowding. Headgear, which is bulky and uncomfortable to wear, is no longer used. Today, a MDA (Multi-Distalizing-Appliance) can be used. The MDA is like a wire; it moves the teeth back to make space for the front teeth. In the past we would often have to remove teeth to create this space. Today you don't have to! Come on in and find out more about braces.
