Braces (Orthodontics)

One of the oldest superspeciality of dentistry orthodontic treatment or more commonly known as BRACES takes care of irregular teeth. Though the treatment is long (around 18-24 months) with recent advances the time is reduced to an extent and the final out come of the treatment supervise all the other aspects. This treatment not only changes the face of the patient but overall outlook of the patient towards life with an added confidence and smartness.

Types Of Braces

Removable braces (plates)

For early orthodontics and for bad oral habit correction children need to wear these removable orthodontic appliances. These are to be removed while eating and brushing but are worn otherwise.

Fixed braces

Can be either-#STEEL COLOURED –most widely used, Or #CERAMIC (TOOTH COLOURED)-barely visible attached on to the tooth surface ,only a thin wire passing through is visible.

Metal brackets

Traditional metal braces are made of the stainless steel brackets and wires that inspired the term “metal mouth” years ago. Fortunately, today’s metal braces are noticeably smaller. And new heat-activated arch wires move your teeth more quickly and less painfully as they respond to your body’s heat.

Ceramic brackets

Ceramic braces mock metal braces in shape and size but they use tooth-colored or clear ceramic brackets that blend more naturally into your teeth. Some even use tooth-colored wires to keep your treatment even lower profile.

Invisaligns

Invisalign consists of a series of customized, clear BPA-free plastic tray aligners that are removable and typically replaced every 2 weeks to keep your teeth moving in the desired direction.

Removable Braces

Removable braces rely on a different method for moving your teeth than traditional metal braces. Instead of a system of very visible brackets and archwires, removable braces use a series of clear removable aligners. The goal of treatment is the same, though: to gradually move your teeth into the desired position.

Orthodontic treatment can be divided into FOUR groups:

Early Orthodontics - (Interceptive)

Many cases if detected early at around 6-8 years of age can be treated effectively with braces only,which if left untreated at this age will need surgery along with braces adding to both cost & suffering to the patient. Moreover many bad oral habits like thumb sucking,nail biting,tongue thrusting and oral breathing can be corrected effectively at this age without causing permanent damage to the face.

Teenage Orthodontics

The best age for orthodontic treatment for a normal growing child is this age as during this age maximum advantage of growth is taken to influence the skeletal pattern along with dental irregularities.

Adult Orthodontics

Common myth that braces are for children only is not true anymore. Whole new concept of adult orthodontics has evolved. Patients of any age if have good bone support can have braces and boost their personnel and social lives. With recent advances and variety of braces this treatment is favoured by many adults these days.

Surgical Orthodontics

To accomplish optimal orthodontic treatment,oral surgery sometimes may be required. Jaw surgery along with orthodontic treatment is called ORTHOGNATHIC SURGERY. Patients who have congenital,developmental or acquired dentofacial abnormalities may require orthodontic alignment of teeth as well as surgical movement of either or both jaws to achieve proper function of teeth and beautiful face.
