● Malocclusions
● Other flaws of the jaw and teeth

Dental braces can be used alone, as a cosmetic measure or in conjunction with other orthodontic treatments. Some patients may require wider jaws or a wider palate, apart from teeth straightening.

There are many types of dental braces or orthodontic braces, including:

● Traditional metal wired orthodontic braces

Am I Suitable for Braces?

Dental braces or orthodontic braces are not recommended for patients with one or more of the following:

● Tooth decay
● Paradontosis
● Poor oral hygiene
● Oral cavity inflammation

Preparing for Braces

Patients will first be required to send dental x-rays to their dentist, before the treatment can begin. Based on the dental x-rays, the dentist will decide if the patient is ready for orthodontic braces.

How is Braces Performed?

Once the patient’s teeth are thoroughly inspected and checked to see if they are fit for braces, the dentist will proceed to take impressions and moulds of the teeth. The x-rays are then analysed in order to determine the best treatment option. Digital models may also be used during this process – the patient will be able to see the result of their treatment beforehand.

The average orthodontic braces treatment lasts anywhere between 6 months and 24 months. Some patients may require surgery before the dental braces can be fitted. The procedure itself and the treatment length depend heavily on the issue that the patient is facing and the type of dental braces used. Usually, teeth are braced with a bonding cement and an adhesive. Extractions may also be necessary at this point.

1 to 4 days per trip

Braces Recovery

Patients will be required to visit the dentist regularly for adjustments – usually between 4 and 10 weeks after the orthodontic braces are fitted. During these appointments the orthodontist can evaluate the patient’s teeth and any progress made, while in the same time ensuring the desired result is achieved.

Braces Success Rates

Before and After Braces

Patients need to devote extra time and care to their teeth while wearing dental braces. Plaque can form very easily around the braces and this can lead to cavities or tooth decay. Brushing is a must and mouthwashes are also recommended while wearing dental braces.

The time required to wear the dental braces depends on a number of factors:

● The health of the patient’s teeth
● The amount of correction that needs to be made
● The health of supporting bone
● The patient’s dental health issue

Once the orthodontic braces treatment is finished, patients will be required to wear a retainer all the time, for at least 6 months. After that, patients will only have to wear it during night time. This is done in order to help the teeth maintain their new position.

Braces FAQ

?
What kind of foods do I need to avoid while wearing dental braces?

Hard foods and sticky foods need to be avoided during the orthodontic braces treatment. Taffy, caramel, hard pretzels and carrots can actually damage the braces themselves and prolong the treatment.

?
What is the least visible type of dental braces?

Invisalign braces, as the name suggests, are a type of transparent dental braces, but it has several disadvantages.

?
At what age should my child have orthodontic treatment?

The sooner the better – certain conditions such as teeth crowing, underbites, overbites and others are much easier to correct when the patient is young and the jaw is still growing. This doesn’t necessarily mean that the treatment won’t work for adults as well, but if the patient is young the treatment will take less time and the results will be better.
