Dental Brace are a type of orthodontic treatment used to connect teeth that are crowded, protruding, out of alignment or have irregular spacing. By moving the teeth into the ideal position, dental braces help to create a more attractive and healthier smile for both children and adults.
An improper bite can interfere with your ability to chew and speak properly, as well as cause abnormal wear to the enamel of your teeth. If your teeth are protruding and oryour upper and lower teeth don't come together comfortably (called malocclusion, or a bad bite), jaw problems also may arise.
Therefore by keeping your teeth in the proper alignment and allowing better oral hygiene, dental braces do more than keep your smile loocking good. They also help you keep your teeth, gums and oral cavity healthy. There is no evidence to prove that the periodontal infection resulting from poor oral hygiene can enter the blood stream and cause cardiac conditions.
The right age for dental braces
Orthodontic treatment with dental braces should begin between the ages of 8 and 14 in order to achieve optimal results.
Adults also can undergo orthodontic treatment with dental braces to correct alignment, spacing, crowding, and mal occlusion problems, but the treatment may take longer for them.
Dental braces materials
We use all kind of dental braces materials such as:
- Metal braces a conventionel wire / braces.
- Ceramic or clear braces
- Inside braces (iBraces) attached to the back of the teeth so they are hidden from view.
The new innovation, new services in orthodontic treatment are the clear aligner : Invisalign. What's this?
A series of clear, removable aligners custom-fit to your teeth to provide virtually irritation-free treatment with minimal adjustment discomfort.
with clear aligners, there are no brackets to come off or wire to break and poke. Invisalign can be removed for eating, drinking and special events, making it easier to brush and floss.
The invisalign was designed primarily for Adults and old teenagers due to the need for absolute and rigid cooperation; the trays are worn 22 hours per day and should not be forgotten or lost.
