What types of braces are available?

Firstly, confirm whether braces are the right solution for your teeth. We can suggest a treatment that best suits your case reach us. The braces may consist of bands, wires, and other fixed or removable corrective appliances. The same method doesn’t work for everyone.

At pradham, we provide metal braces and ceramic braces treatments performed by trained and experienced orthodontics.

What is the difference between metal and ceramic braces?

Metal Braces:

Metal braces are the most popular and most commonly used style of braces. They are made of stainless-steel brackets which are held together with metal wire and small rubber bands. Metal braces are strong, durable, and highly effective in straightening teeth and correcting bite formation. Metal braces have been a mainstay in oral health for over 100 years. They are both reliable and effective.

Ceramic Braces:

Ceramic braces are built in the same way as metal braces, but they are made out of porcelain rather than stainless steel. This is generally so that they can be made to match the colour of your teeth. White wires and clear brackets are generally used in conjunction with ceramic braces in order to give a minimal and sometimes nearly-invisible appearance. Ceramic braces perform the same job that metal braces do, but they sometimes must be worn for longer as they are not as strong and suffer from additional friction throughout the treatment.

Benefits of Metal Braces:

As mentioned, metal braces tend to be stronger because of their material. They are also usually a bit cheaper than their ceramic counterparts. They will work faster, which will allow you to finish treatment as quickly as 6 months, depending upon the severity of your condition. Because they are so sturdy, many people opt for metal braces in order to guarantee that their treatment will be quick and effective.

Benefits of Ceramic Braces:

Ceramic braces provide a far more desirable aesthetic than metal braces. If you are self-conscious about your appearance, you may decide to go with ceramic braces to minimize their conspicuousness. You can customize the colour of the ceramic to match your teeth, making them look as natural as possible. Ceramic braces might also be necessary for those who have a metal allergy that renders them unable to wear metal braces.

But, how do braces work?

The basic principle of how braces work is by applying pressure continuously. Over a period of time, they slowly move your teeth in a specified direction. As the teeth move, the bone changes shape as pressure is applied.

It’s the archwire that puts most of the pressure on your teeth, while many of the other parts (like the brackets) work to hold it in place. If you have stubborn teeth, you may need things like rubber pants to increase the amount of pressure

One more interesting thing braces do is “bone remodelling” (since teeth are similar to bones). At the end it’s a good thing as it actually strengthens your teeth.

What is the process of getting braces?

Step 1: Looking at what your teeth need

Not every person has an underbite or an overbite, and not every person has gaps in their teeth or overcrowding. Each mouth is different and treatment must be specific to the individual in order to work properly.

Our orthodontist will look at your teeth and determine what needs to be done in order to straighten your teeth, or if you would even benefit from an orthodontic treatment. The treatment is not required for everyone. Chances are there, that your teeth are already in a good shape.

Step 2: Customized treatment plan for you

Our orthodontist will also look at the X-rays and determine the best customized treatment plan that suits you. During your visit, we may also make a mould of your teeth for better treatment design. Off of the mould that was taken of your teeth, the orthodontist will create a mock-up of the braces

Step 3: Placing the Braces

Our orthodontist will start by inserting a device to keep your mouth dry and your tongue in place. Then we condition the surface of the teeth, to provide a place to cement on the brackets, cementing the brackets in place, and placing the first wire. After a cleaning, the conditioning can take anywhere from ten to thirty minutes. Then, the teeth are primed for the cement, and then the brackets are placed, based on predetermined positions, designed by the orthodontist

Step 4: Placing the wire

Once the brackets are in place, it is time to insert the wire into the brackets. Our orthodontists start out with a semicircle of wire, cut it to the right length, and sometimes insert bends or kinks into the wire in order to create leverage over the teeth, which will help them move faster into the correct position. The wire is then placed into the brackets and the doors closed to hold it in place.

Step 5: Adjustments after few days

After few days of placing braces, we have to change the wire(as it loses its strength), this process is called adjustments. During an adjustment, our orthodontist removes the wire, bends it again, or inserts a new wire, often using the old wire as a guide. This new wire will be slightly stronger or have a different configuration than the last wire, in order to continue moving the teeth. Each time you go in for an adjustment, the dentist will insert a slightly different wire, to pull or push the teeth in a certain way

What support do I need after getting braces?

Instructions on how to brush:

Our orthodontist will likely go into depth about how to brush your teeth, what kind of toothpaste to use. Small spindle brushes are common, which can help to remove food particle and bacteria from around the brackets and in between the wire and your teeth.

The diet to follow:

Braces will come along with a number of dietary restrictions. In general, our dentists may insist you to avoid sticky and crunchy foods, as well as hard fruits like apples. While small pieces of hard food may be alright, anything that requires you to take a large bite into something hard could result in popping off a bracket. While these restrictions may seem unnecessary, they are actually intended to make sure that your braces treatment goes as smoothly and as quickly as possible

Cleaning your teeth at dentist end:

During a time when it might be very difficult to brush, our dentists can help keep your teeth clean. Brackets and wires make it difficult for you to reach your teeth, but our dentists and hygienists have been trained in cleaning around brackets and can provide pointers to help you clean more efficiently and effectively
