Though I agree with the sentiment, I believe we should leave personal promotion out it. Orthodontics provides a great service!
Dr. Duane Keller
Orthodontic treatments should be completed at the best functional relationship of the upper quadrant. Then the joint function, muscle function, head and upper quadrant relationships can usually work in harmony. A smile is important, but so in function and longevity.

In brief: Depends

How much can be done with orthodontics may depend upon the severity of the malocclusion (bite discrepancy) as well as if the malocclusion is strictly a dental related problem or if there is a skeletal problem that is contributing to the malocclusion.

To find out, see a specialist Orthodontist for (usually free) initial examination.

In brief: 6mm

We call our specialty a 6mm specialty.
Which means we can really move teeth about 6 millimeters in 3 dimensions.

In brief: Orthodontics

This is a question to ask your orthodontist.
If you have a really severe dental malocclusion, you might require orthodontics and oral surgery to get your bite straight. Most orthodontists offer free consultations in which they can explain your treatment options for your specific problems/issues. Go see an orthodontist and get your options.

In brief: Too Broad A Question

Your question is way too broad.
It can be related to asking "how tall is a man". I would suggest to you that you be more specific. I am sure that the panel would be pleased to answer your question.

In brief: Ortho-smile changer

Great advances in orthodontics have reduced the cost to affordable for young and old.
For the young it is a game changer. It builds confidence, changes life attitudes. We always refer our older patients for ortho prior to dental implant surgery. This maximizes their outcome. Every patient is glad they did this.

In brief: Lots

So many wonderful things.
It's almost like magic the improvements that can be made. See an orthodontic specialist for an individualized evaluation to learn as much as you can before making a decision.

Early treatment of narrow jaws and underdeveloped lower jaws may reduce the chance of developing sleep apnea as an adult

In brief: Your real Question

is: can braces fix MY smile? For an answer, arrange a consultation with a local orthodontist.
This is usually available without charge. BTW my oldest patient was a 65 year old man. His teeth are now perfect.
