What are braces?

Dental braces are device used in orthodontics that align and straighten teeth and correct various other flaws of teeth and jaw. They help position teeth with regard to person’s bite problems. While some patients have the ideal bite, they may suffer from varying degree of crowding or spacing. Braces are used to move teeth into ideal position and align how they bite together, known as occlusion. Malocclusion is the misalignment of teeth between upper and lower dental arches.

Types of braces:

Metal braces:

Metal braces are made of stainless steel and are one of the oldest type of braces. This type of brace is relatively inexpensive compared to some of the more advanced braces. This type of brace does have aesthetic problems as they are visible when worn.

Ceramic or clear braces:

A very popular alternative to metal braces is Ceramic Braces due to lack of visibility when worn. It is made of composite materials, they look very natural when fitted and will not stain teeth. Ceramic or Clear Braces are also very strong. Ceramic Brackets come in range of poly-crystalline and mono-crystalline nature. It provides perfect aesthetic or beauty as well as strength which patients always seek for.

Lingual braces:

Lingual braces are invisible when worn as they are fitted behind the teeth on the tongue side. A patient may take a little more time get used to lingual braces. The plus side is that they are really invisible, the minus side is that may have speech problems at first.

Invisible braces (clear aligners or Invisalign):

There are even more advanced types of treatment modalities available that are used to treat crooked teeth. They are designed by computer and can be removed in order to clean after eating. It is made of clear or transparent material. It cannot be adjusted but is made in different size levels as the orthodontic treatment progresses.

How braces works:

Braces work by moving teeth in a certain direction by use of force on teeth. Bone remodeling occurs when stress is applied to the periodontal ligament. The ultimate outcome is that the tooth or teeth will permanently movie into the desired position over a period of time.

There are 4 basic elements that are needed in order to move teeth in correct or ideal position. In the case of traditional metal or wire braces, one uses brackets, bonding material, arch wire, and ligature elastic, to help align the teeth. The teeth move when the arch wire puts pressure on brackets and teeth. Sometimes springs or rubber bands are used to put more force in a specific direction. Braces put constant forces which over time makes teeth movie into their proper position. This movement needs to be done slowly otherwise the patient risks losing his or her teeth. This is the reason why braces are commonly worn for approximately one and half years and adjustments are only made every 4 to 6 weeks.
