(Avail ₹100 off on online booking!)
Dental Braces help straighten the crooked & misaligned teeth, guiding the teeth to the corrected position. This treatment include placing brackets, wires, & bands which enables the correction of jaws and irregular teeth positioning, & improve the smile aesthetics. These wire-based appliances, called braces, are used by orthodontists to re-shape the crowded or misaligned teeth & jaw. The aim of dental braces is to suitably align the teeth & jaws so that one has an ideal occlusion & an endearing smile.
You would possibly inherit characteristics like teeth crowding & misalignment in your growing years. Children between 6 to 12 years should be scheduled for regular dental checkups to anticipate malocclusion or crowding. This formulates interceptive approach in treating malocclusion through various removable appliances or habit breakers.
The ideal treatment age for braces is 12-13 years. The growth potential at this age is utilised along with braces treatment. Due to recent advances nowadays adult orthodontics is also attempted with predictable results. The dentists at our dental clinic believe in a team work and our core team headed by Dr Sourabh Jain (orthodontist ) evaluate each and every case in detail and formulate treatment plan accordingly.
Nowadays orthodontists primarily offer 5 kinds of braces. At Nakoda Dental Clinic & Advanced Orthodontic Care,we offfer these special types of braces.
Metal braces - Among the most prevalent corrective options, metal braces work well for all age groups & are usually affordable. In this treatment option, metal brackets are put on the teeth for a few months in order to re-shape the teeth & jaws of the individuals.
Ceramic braces - Accounting to be among the latest treatments, ceramic braces are tooth-colored or clear brackets that blend in with the teeth. Relatively more aesthetic & convenient, these brackets are less noticeable than the metallic ones.
Self Ligating braces - In the case of your more traditional braces, the orthodontist uses elastics to keep the archwire on the bracket. In self-ligating braces, the archwire is held in place by the bracket itself by closing a small, spring-loaded door. Although the popularity of this bracket style has climbed over the last 10 years or so, the system itself has been around since the mid-1930s. There are numerous manufacturers of this type of bracketing system.
Lingual Braces - Lingual braces are almost the same as the traditional metal braces, except for the way they are fitted is relatively better. Lingual brackets and wires are placed on the inside of the teeth & so they aren’t much noticeable.
Invisible braces - Also known as Invisalign, this treatment comprises the formation of 18 to 30 custom-made clear plastic aligners. These clear mouth guard-like plastic aligners are removable & are fairly aesthetic and supreme. These invisible braces need to be replaced in every two weeks.
Because closing the door (or gate) on the braces is generally a speedier process than putting elastics around each bracket to hold the archwires in place (as in the case of traditional braces), patients will be in and out of the office quicker.
There is some evidence that suggests as there without the use of ligating elastic bands to attach the archwire to the bracket (as you see in traditional brace setups), the wire in the bracket slots minimizes the friction and as such the force required to move teeth.
This in turn is believed to reduce the discomfort patients might experience. Again, it is important to note that it is a reduction in general soreness, it doesn't completely remove it.
There have been claims made that self-ligating braces have helped to shorten treatment time by up to six months, but it can be dependent on what type of malocclusion is being addressed as well as the severity of it.
One of the annoyances experienced by the typical braces-wearer is that the latex material on the elastics and rubber bands is notorious for trapping food, and providing the perfect environment for plaque to form. Self-ligating braces eliminate the need for elastics, so those wearers who might not be as fastidious with there cleaning and flossing will experience much cleaner smiles during their treatment.
Self-ligating braces come in both metal and clear brackets, so those concerned about the appearance of their braces can choose a less conspicuous route.
