Braces

DENTAL BRACES FOR IMPROVING YOUR SMILE

Dental braces are orthodontic appliances designed to straighten and improve the aesthetics and function of your teeth. This benefits both adults and children as straight teeth are easier to clean. In addition, after the teeth have been straightened, there is usually an increase in overall self-esteem and confidence level.

The braces process can be uncomfortable when the teeth are being moved. Braces can also trap more food than usual, so great attention to good oral hygiene is required to prevent tooth decay and gum disease. The common types of braces include the traditional metal braces, ceramic braces, self-ligating braces and lingual braces. For aesthetics reasons, there are also invisible or clear braces (a more commonly known brand is Invisalign) options, you can read more about Invisalign here.

TYPE OF BRACES

Metal braces

Metal braces are the most common and affordable type of braces. These braces are made of high-grade stainless steel. Metal braces are attached to the teeth and are not removable by the patient. There are also wires that are held onto the braces with colourful rubber bands. Metal braces are most popular with teenagers who like to decorate their teeth and braces with colours. However, the braces have a certain thickness and patients usually take a week or two to get used to the braces in the mouth.

Ceramic braces

Ceramic braces are made from tooth-coloured materials that blend in naturally with the colour of teeth. These braces are more aesthetically pleasing when compared to metal braces; making it a popular choice for patients who want some form of aesthetic and less visible braces. The ceramic material used in the braces are stain resistant and do not discolour easily. However, like metal braces these ceramic braces also have a certain thickness that takes some getting used to.

Self-ligating braces

Self-ligating braces are slightly different from the conventional metal or ceramic braces described earlier. These braces are also attached onto the teeth; however, the wires are held onto the braces using a “gate” that is built into the braces, hence the term self-ligating. This reduces the need for rubber bands and thus there is less friction in the whole braces system. This allows for lighter forces to be used on the teeth, and often translates to more comfortable treatment. Self-ligating braces are available in both the metal and ceramic varieties.

Lingual braces

Lingual braces are braces that are attached to the inner side of the teeth, and are hidden from the outside. These are most preferred by patients who do not want to be seen with any type of braces. However, like the fixed type of metal and ceramic braces described earlier, lingual braces also have some thickness that needs some time to get used to.

Invisible braces

Invisible braces are suitable for patients who have the desire to solve their orthodontics concerns but are conscious of the stigma that the wearing of visible braces presents. The aligners are made of transparent and pliable material. They provide a discreet, natural appearance, and when worn there is a significant decrease in discomfort then those present in traditional braces. The aligners are removable to allow for the convenient cleaning of teeth and comfortable consumption of food. However, because these aligners are removable, patients have to be consistent and disciplined with the compliance of their treatment plans.
