Teeth braces or “tooth clips” as they are more commonly called in India, is a routine treatment for a condition known in dentistry as “malocclusion. This condition means your teeth are not perfectly set. This could be either because they are crowded or crooked or prominent or because your jaw is not in perfect alignment.
If your lower and upper jaws do not meet properly when you close your mouth, it’s called a “bad bite.” Such tooth and jaw alignment problems could occur due to injuries, thumb-sucking in childhood or simply malformation at birth.
Dental braces are usually recommended for children while they’re growing up. Flaws in jaw structure, protruding teeth, cross bites and other problems become apparent in children from the age of 6 onwards. If a child is given braces from the age of 8 to 14, he or she gets optimal results.
This does not mean that adults can’t get braces. For adults, it is also the best dental treatment ever. It’s just that cosmetic or structural dental defects can easily be corrected in growing children. These days “orthodontics,” the branch of dentistry that deals with tooth and jaw reshaping, is sufficiently advanced to treat teeth displacement and jaw irregularities at any age, given moderate bone health.
Bhalla dental clinic India advises that you take kids to the dentist by age 8 if you observe uneven teeth or bad bite. For adults, he recommends braces or other orthodontic treatment to straighten out irregular jaws or to produce a nice smile. One can get affordable dental braces in India. The costs of dental braces against many countries are cheaper.
“Dental braces offer both cosmetic and health benefits”!
The reason to go for perfect jaw alignment is not only cosmetic. A proper smile, in addition to beauty, gives you good oral health. Failing to correct crooked teeth or misaligned jaws can result in tooth decay due to food stuck in gaps between teeth, periodontal gum disease, speech impediment and chewing problems.
Types of Dental Braces
Modern orthodontic treatments offer a variety of options including both visible and invisible dental braces. They include titanium, stainless steel alloys, bonded lingual, gold plated, ceramic and clear dental braces.
Traditional metal braces involve brackets bonded to each tooth, connected in a series by arch wire, and tightened by ligature elastic. These arrange teeth by putting pressure on them. Springs or O-rings are sometimes used to concentrate force on specific areas or in a particular direction. Over time, teeth get aligned into proper positions.
Clear dental braces are an invisible alternative to metal braces. They are less noticeable and a proven way to straighten the teeth. Ceramic are the type of clear dental braces that usually match to our teeth color or come in clear brackets to fix to the teeth.
We offers a highly popular treatment of clear dental braces. The braces need to be worn from anywhere from one year to three years. The dentist may decide to adjust braces about once month to loosen, tighten or shift them according to alignment requirements. After braces are removed, the patient may need to wear “retainers” for a short period to hold teeth in their new positions!
