Dental braces are equipment used to provide your teeth the accurate alignment. Their main purpose is to improve the appearance and functioning of your teeth. Braces aid to correct irregular teeth positioning, jaw correction, improvement in chewing, and smile aesthetics.
The functioning of braces is based on the exertion of pressure on teeth. By the virtue of this pressure, bone of the jaw helps in movement of roots of the teeth.
The right time to have braces
Always there exists a dilemma regarding the proper time to put on braces. As far as the most accurate time is concerned, childhood is the best period for this purpose. But adults can also undergo a quite comfortable orthodontic treatment.
Age does not play any decisive role in application or functioning of braces. The only requirement for a proper orthodontic treatment is a healthy mouth free from any prior infection. If there remains any infection, then it must be well-cured before undergoing the orthodontic procedure.
Types of braces
Metal braces– These are the most conventional type of braces, which involve elastics to tie wires of the braces. These wires utilize the body’s heat for a quick and painless motion of teeth. Metal braces are appropriate for all age groups.
Ceramic braces– Ceramic braces are somewhat similar to metal braces in shape and size but they have tooth-colored and clear brackets. Being less prominent after wearing, ceramic braces are the most preferred among teenagers.
Lingual braces– These are the metal braces having wires behind the teeth. Generally, metals like silver and gold are used for this purpose. Individuals using lingual braces can have speech-issues during treatment but that gets sorted automatically within a few days.
Aligners– An aligner is a set of 18-30 customized plastic trays that do not require any wire or brace. They are invisible and that is why they satisfy the aesthetic concerns as well. Aligners are removable and replaced after a couple of weeks.
