Orthodontic Braces


Your smile is the most important feature on your face. So how can you make a fabulous smile look attractive?

Let know about Orthodontic!

Orthodontic is the branch of dentistry that corrects teeth and jaws that are positioned improperly. Crooked teeth and teeth that do not fit together correctly are harder to keep clean, are at risk of being lost early due to tooth decay and periodontal disease, and cause extra stress on the chewing muscles that can lead to headaches, TMJ syndrome and neck, shoulder and back pain. Teeth that are crooked or not in the right place can also detract from one’s appearance.

Orthodontic is treatment can focus on dental displacement only, or deal with the control and modification of facial growth. In the latter case it is better defined as “dent facial orthopedics”. In severe malocclusions, management often requires a combination of Orthodontics and Jaw Surgery (Orthodontics Surgery). This often requires additional training, in addition to the formal 3 year specialty training. 

Do you need Orthodontics?

Dentist can determine whether you can benefit from orthodontics. Based on diagnostic tools that include a full medical and dental health history, a clinical exam, plaster models of your teeth, and special X-rays and photographs, an orthodontist or dentist can decide whether orthodontics are recommended, and develop a treatment plan that’s right for you.

If you have any of the following, you may be a candidate for orthodontic treatment:

Under bite — a “bulldog” appearance where the lower teeth are too far forward or the upper teeth too far back

Cross bite — when the upper teeth do not come down slightly in front of the lower teeth when biting together normally

Open bite — space between the biting surfaces of the front and/or side teeth when the back teeth bite together

Misplaced midline— when the center of your upper front teeth does not line up with the center of your lower front teeth

Spacing — gaps, or spaces, between the teeth as a result of missing teeth or teeth that do not “fill up” the mouth

Crowding — when there are too many teeth for the dental ridge to accommodate

Many different types of appliances, both fixed and removable, are used to help move teeth, retrain muscles and affect the growth of the jaws. These appliances work by placing gentle pressure on the teeth and jaws. The severity of your problem will determine which orthodontic approach is likely to be the most effective.

How many types of orthodontic we have?

Metal braces is most common fixed appliances, braces consist of bands, wires and/or brackets. Bands are fixed around the teeth or tooth and used as anchors for the appliance, while brackets are most often bonded to the front of the tooth. Arch wires are passed through the brackets and attached to the bands. Tightening the arch wire puts tension on the teeth, gradually moving them to their proper position. Braces are usually adjusted monthly to bring about the desired results, which may be achieved within a few months to a few years. Today’s braces are smaller, lighter and show far less metal than in the past. They come in bright colors for kids as well as clear styles preferred by many adults.

Ceramic braces are the same size and shape as metal braces, except that they have tooth-colored or clear brackets that blend in to teeth. Some even use tooth-colored wires to be even less noticeable. Ceramic braces offer a unique advantage over conventional metal appliances. The material composition and design allows an uncompromising level of care and enable you to look good during treatment.  They have what is called a low profile design, which is less irritating to your lips. They also have special contours to make your orthodontic treatment go faster and be less painful.

Clear Aligner appliances are invisible when the patient is wearing them. The constructed of clear aligner is plastic formulated for intraoral use. They are accepted worldwide because of their strength, clarity, size and value. Tooth movement requires time, force and space. The pliers for tooth movement provide force to move teeth by creating a bump directly into an Clear Aligner. Depending on the force and the space are placed, different types of movement can be achieved: tipping, torqueing and rotating.

How can take care your teeth while you have braces and after you take it off?

While have the braces you should,

  • Check up and clean your teeth every 6 months.
  • Used the special brushes for braces.
  • Daily fluoride mouth rinse (Must be alcohol-free and pH-balanced rinse).
  • Avoid drinking lots of fizzy drinks, gum, crunchy and sticky foods .
  • Keep in-between-meal snacks to a minimum.

After take off the braces a brace is removed the teeth can drift back towards their original positions patient must to wear the retainer braces until they have settled. If patient do not wear the retainer the teeth can shift out of position if they are not stabilized. Retainers provide that stabilization. They are designed to hold teeth in their corrected, ideal positions until the bones and gums adapt to the treatment changes. Wearing retainers exactly as instructed is the best insurance that the treatment improvements last for a lifetime.
