Braces FAQ

We usually recommends braces to improve a patient's facial appearance. Through orthodontic treatment, problems like crooked or crowded teeth, overbites or underbites, incorrect jaw position and disorders of the jaw joints are corrected. If left untreated, these problems can result in tooth decay, gum disease, headaches and earaches, as well as speaking, biting or chewing problems.
Patients with orthodontic problems can benefit from treatment at nearly any age. An ideal time for placement of braces is between 10 to 14 years of age, while the head and mouth are still growing and teeth are more accessible to straightening.. And braces aren't just for kids. More and more adults are also wearing braces to correct minor problems and to improve their smiles.
After the preliminary checkup we would determine what appliance is best for your particular problem, but you often have a choice. The most popular type are brackets, metal, ceramic or plastic, that are bonded to teeth. Ceramic brackets are typically clear or tooth-colored and are far less noticeable than metal brackets. Lingual, or concealed, braces are brackets that attach to the back of teeth, hidden from view. Both types of braces use wires to move the teeth to the desired position.
That depends upon your treatment plan. The more complicated your spacing or bite problem is, and the older you are, the longer the period of treatment, usually. Most patients may need to wear full braces between 12 and 24 months, followed by the wearing of a retainer to set and align tissues surrounding straightened teeth.
The interconnecting wires of traditional braces are tightened at each visit, bearing mild pressure on the brackets or bands to shift teeth or jaws gradually into a desired position. Your teeth and jaws may feel slightly sore after each visit, but the discomfort is brief.
With braces, oral hygiene is more important than ever. Braces have tiny spaces where food particles and plaque get trapped. Brush carefully after every meal with fluoride toothpaste and a soft-bristled toothbrush. Rinse thoroughly and check your teeth in the mirror to make sure they're clean.
One must visit clinics who has an orthodontist (a specialist trained in the development, prevention and correction of irregularities of the teeth, bite and jaws and related facial abnormalities)
