Dental Braces Types - What to Except?

Things you need to know about dental braces

Most people are lucky enough to be blessed with perfect teeth, but thanks to orthodontic treatment which can make a huge difference to your smile. there are various types of dental braces which can be recommended by an orthodontist to correct your dental problem.

Traditional dental braces:

Traditional dental braces have changed a lot from older days, they are now lighter in weight, compact and durable. They are prepared from a high-grade stainless-steel. Metal brackets are attached to each tooth and are linked to each other with a thin archwire. With the help of brackets and archwire, a pressure is build on teeth which cause them to gradually move the teeth into correct position.

Ceramic Braces:

This type of braces are same as that of traditional braces. The only difference is that the brackets and the archwire are made from a different color. Brackets are made from the ceramic material due to which they are less visible, clear and transparent. This kind of braces are the popular choice for adults who are in need of orthodontics.

Damon Braces:

This type of braces has gained much popularity as it provides gentler treatment and needs fewer dental visits. Damon braces make use of slide mechanism to connect archwires instead of elastics. The results obtained with this braces are much faster as the teeth can move o their own, without the need of adjustment.

Clear and removable aligner:

Invisalign, a clear aligner which can be used instead of traditional braces or Damon braces. It is made up of clear plastic aligners that almost look similar to a mouth guard. In this treatment, a person can remove the aligner while eating and cleaning. They are custom made for you and are changed every two weeks. Each new aligner moves your teeth to the desired position.

Forsus Appliances:

American Association of Orthodontists recommends that each child must be screened at the age of 7 because the early stage is the correct time for treatment. While a child is screened, an orthodontist may suggest the need of Forsus appliances to correct difficult overbites, and also to adjust the position of lower and upper jaw. The appliance is a spring worn inside the cheek which gets attached to the braces. This appliance has helped those patients who once had to wear a large headgear for braces.

Palatal Expanders:

A patient with overcrowded teeth has two alternatives, tooth extraction and palatal expansion. In past, tooth extraction was the preferred solution, but now, orthodontists may recommend palatal expander for a period of time. This device fits your palate to apply gentle pressure to the back of your upper molars so that it gradually moves your teeth farther apart. This way the palate gets expanded and creates the room and make it possible for other dental braces treatment to be fitted to the exact position of your teeth.
