What is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics deals with the arrangement of teeth and the way teeth come together (the bite). Orthodontic treatment aims at bringing teeth and jaws into a harmonious position with the face. This may improve the appearance, oral health and function. Positive results can be achieved by informed and cooperative patients. 

Why Do I Need Braces?
People have their teeth straightened for a variety of reasons. These include: dental health, appearance, speech, better chewing etc. Among these, dental health is the most important. Poorly aligned or crooked teeth are difficult to keep clean. They often give rise to decay and gum problems.

Orthodontic Treatment Takes Time?
Braces used in orthodontic treatment need time to work. This generally takes two to three years. The braces are fixed permanently on the teeth until the completion of treatment. Special appliances called retainers are fitted after braces treatment to hold the teeth in their new positions.

For treatment to progress smoothly, you need to maintain good oral hygiene by brushing regularly, especially after every meal and snack. Remember to bring a travel toothbrush with you when you are not at home. Avoid eating hard, sticky foods and keep to your orthodontic appointments faithfully.

When is the Best Time to Start Treatment?
This depends on the type of orthodontic problem. For jaw-related cases, treatment generally starts while the child is still growing. This is between the ages of 9 and 11. For mal-aligned teeth not related to jaw problems, treatment can generally be delayed until all the primary teeth (milk teeth) have changed to permanent ones.

There is no age limit for orthodontic treatment. Adults can also benefit from orthodontic treatment.

Types of braces:

Conventional Metal Braces

Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces and are more comfortable today than ever before. Made of high-grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. With metal braces you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are made of clear materials and are therefore less visible on your teeth. For this reason, ceramic braces are used mainly on older teenagers and adult patients who have cosmetic concerns.

Invisible Aligners

Clear appliances (such as Invisalign®) use a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners to straighten your teeth. And, no one can tell you are wearing them!

Lingual Orthodontics

In lingual braces the brackets are cemented onto the backside of the teeth making them invisible while in standard braces the brackets are cemented onto the front side of the teeth. Hence, lingual braces are a cosmetic alternative to those who do not wish the braces to be visible.
