Double-arch orthodontic treatment is usually the best course of action if you want to enjoy optimum oral health and facial aesthetics. However, that does not mean that you will get upper and lower braces at the same time.
The top teeth usually move more slowly than the bottom ones. Therefore, upper braces are often put in place a few months before lower ones. Exactly when your braces are placed will depend on the specifics of your unique case and how your dental team plans the specifics of your treatment.
The idea of single-arch orthodontic treatment can seem appealing, but it usually is not practical. To enjoy the best results from your braces, follow the recommendations of your dental team.
