Hello XXXXXXX
Thanks for writing in.

Namarata first of all i would like to tell you that,ideal time for orthodontic treatment is teenage,but your case at the age of 23 years can be treated, you can go for two types of braces for aesthetic purpose-
1.Ceramic braces.
2.Lingual braces.

Time required for orthodontic treatment depends on case,but approximately 1-2 years time is required for orthodontic treatment.

Cost also depends on case,but approximate cost will be 20-30 thousands.

Hope this answered your query,if you have further any doubt,feel free to ask.

Take Care.

I can not understand were the swelling can go if I have this cast on.

Hi. Am 42 years old. Six years ago I was diagnosed with mild scoliosis. Lately I have experienced worsening breathing difficulties and notice a small hump in my upper spine just where my neck starts. I also feel a lump in my throat. I also notice my chest points left of center when standing.I was told by my spine doc six years ago that adult mild scoliosis doesn t worsen. He also did not give me a brace for my back, or a lift for my shoe or check me for vitamin d deficiency which I recently found I am deficient in.Is it possible for my scoliosis to worsen? What can I do to slow it down or stop it? I am very active with sports and exercise. Is it true that post surgery for scoliosis means no more sports? Thank you
