Dental Braces

Dental Braces

Dental braces are a type of orthodontic treatment that are used to straighten and align the teeth and improve the overall appearance of the smile. Braces work by applying gentle, continuous pressure to the teeth, gradually moving them into the desired position.

Types of Dental Braces

There are several types of braces available, including traditional metal braces, ceramic braces, and clear aligners. Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces, and are made of high-grade stainless steel. Ceramic braces are similar to traditional braces, but are made of a clear or tooth-coloured material that is less noticeable in the mouth. Clear aligners, such as Invisalign, are a more subtle alternative to braces, and are made of a clear, plastic material that is virtually invisible in the mouth.

Dental Braces treatment procedure

The process of getting braces typically involves several visits to the dental office. During the first visit, the dental professional will assess the patient’s oral health and determine the best type of braces for their specific needs. Impressions of the teeth will be taken and used to create a treatment plan and custom-fit the braces.

Once the braces have been fitted, the patient will return for regular adjustment appointments, typically every four to six weeks. During these appointments, the dental professional will tighten the braces and make any necessary adjustments to ensure that the teeth are moving into the desired position. The length of treatment with braces will vary depending on the individual patient and the specific needs of their case. In general, treatment with braces can take anywhere from six months to two years.

Dental braces are a highly effective way to straighten and align the teeth and improve the overall appearance of the smile. If you are considering braces as a treatment option, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with Dr Shwetha’s dental clinic at IRIS Diagnostics to discuss your options and determine the best course of treatment for your specific needs.
