[00:00:04.057] Traditional orthodontics is the bonding of bracket or braces [00:00:07.386] that are commonly referred to. [00:00:08.858] These days, there are several types of brackets. [00:00:10.587] And all these brackets require a sequential series of wires [00:00:14.644] to force the teeth to move into the position, [00:00:16.930] where not only you end up with nice, beautiful aligned teeth, [00:00:20.786] but also nice functional teeth. [00:00:23.115] A good candidate for braces is a person that sees any type of issue [00:00:29.587] with their bite, with the alignment of their teeth, [00:00:32.771] as long as the health conditions allow. [00:00:35.329] The patient's mouth as far as the bone gums, healthy teeth, [00:00:40.843] anybody at any age can have braces. [00:00:43.343] It can be a person as young as 6 years old with certain types of appliances [00:00:47.814] to a patient that's 80 years old that needs certain teeth to be aligned [00:00:51.315] in order to allow any other procedure to fit inside the mouth. [00:00:55.601] We normally take a digital scan. [00:00:57.115] We look at the side view [00:00:58.658] to see the person's profile and their growth profile. [00:01:01.957] Then from there, we make a decision [00:01:03.301] on the type of treatment that we're going to be doing. [00:01:06.201] The main thing is, no matter how long it takes, [00:01:08.376] that the patient is as comfortable as possible [00:01:10.971] to make sure that they leave here happy.
