Teeth can be straightened with orthodontics (braces). This is usually done during the teenage years, when the teeth are going through a period of growth. However, many adults also have treatment to straighten their crooked teeth or to approve their appearance. For cosmetic reason, clear or plastic braces can be used, which are hardly noticeable.
