Braces are used to correct irregular teeth with metal or ceramic brackets.
In most case braces are fitted between the ages of 11 and 13 years, but is some case the Orthodontist will recommend “Myofunctional Appliances” at ages between 6 and 8 years which makes the later treatment simpler and less experience.
Tooth coloured ceramic brackets are gaining popularity over the conventional metal brackets since they are less noticeable.
We also specialize is lingual Orthodontics, where the brackets are fitted to the inner surfaces of the teeth and are out of sight.
Secret to a confident smile
Does the uneven alignment of your teeth make you self-conscious during social gatherings? There is a simple fix for that. If you visit your orthodontist, they will recommend getting braces or teeth aligners to make your teeth look pleasing to one’s eyes. Unlike your other teeth appointments, these solutions will not be operating any drills or other heavy equipment. With a few sittings you will be able to proudly flaunt all of your teeth set in the same level.
Braces are normally fitted when one is in their preteens or early teenage years, although there is no harm in putting it for adults who are older. The fun factor when wearing braces is that you get to choose from a wide variety of elastics on the brackets. One bracket is placed on each of the teeth and all of them are joined by a metal wire. These wires will be tightened on consecutive sittings to pull your teeth into the right orientation. Lingual orthodontics is the latest in this field. In this case the brackets will be placed on the inner side of your teeth. It ensures that the braces are out of sight while you smile making you feel less awkward.
The other option is going for aligners. The clear aligners are gaining momentum these days as they are not as noticeable as the metallic braces. A set of tight fitting aligners can be placed over your teeth and removed whenever you require like when you eat food and brush your teeth. This will slowly move your teeth into the prescribed shape.
