OUR SERVICE : BRACES (Orthodontic Treatment)

The Importance of Your Smile

The Invisalign Smile Survey was conducted by telephone by Harris Interactive on behalf of Align Technology Inc. The study was conducted on a representative sample of 1000 American adults - both men and women --between 18 and 50 years of age. The poll explored the importance of smiles in relation to business and careers, dating and marriage, the social arena, and the overall value of smiles and self-esteem. Results:

Why Braces?

If you are looking for aligned teeth then consider braces. Braces are still the most popular form of orthodontic treatment available.

Braces straighten teeth by putting steady pressure on your teeth and by staying in place for a certain amount of time. Most malocclusions just need regular braces with wires and rubber bands doing their jobs to keep pressure on the teeth. The wires on your braces help to move your teeth, and the rubber bands help to correct the alignment (the way your teeth line up).


Everyone has to wear braces for different lengths of time, but most people usually wear braces for about 9months-2 years. You may need to wear a retainer, which is a small, hard piece of plastic with metal wires or a thin piece of plastic shaped like a mouth guard. Retainers make sure your teeth don't go wandering back to their original places. Your retainer will be specially moulded to fit your newly straightened teeth.


After you get your retainer, your Orthodontist will tell you when you have to wear it and how long - you might have to wear your retainer. It just depends on your teeth.

How Braces Work?


Braces work by applying controlled force on the teeth. Over time, the forces will move the teeth to the desired position. The length of the treatment will depend on how far the teeth need to be moved. Some treatments can take a few months while there are other cases that need years of treatment. Other factors that can affect the length of treatment are the age and overall health of the patient. The older you are, the denser your jaw bone which means that it will take longer for your teeth to move to the desired position.



Who Can Benefit From Braces?


Both children and adults alike can benefit from the treatment. For children, it is recommended to start treatment when they have all their permanent teeth. Usually, by the age of 7 or 8, children can start wearing braces. Although more time is needed for adults to get the final results, you will see that the final result of the treatment will be just as effective. Keep in mind that you are never too old to get braces.

If your parents had braces, you may have seen pictures of them with their mouths full of metal. Today, braces are much less noticeable. Metal braces are still used, but you might be able to get clear braces or braces that are the same color as your teeth. There are even braces that are behind your teeth where no one can see them.
The wires that are used in braces today are also smaller and better than they used to be, and they're made of a space-age material that straightens your teeth faster and easier. The rubber bands that go along with braces come in funky colors now, too. So you could have black and orange ones for Halloween if you like.

Fixed braces

- the teeth have small attachments glued to them. Fixed braces fitted to upper and lower teeth look a bit like railway lines, so some people call them "train-track braces". Fixed braces are very good for correcting complex problems. These are commonly made of stainless steel, when used for children as they are easier to keep clean. Tooth coloured ceramic or acrylic appliances are also available, and are most often used for adults. They are much more aesthetic. We also use lingual fixed appliances; this is where the attachments are glued to the back of the teeth, very helpful for straightening teeth for people in prominent positions.

 

Types of fixed braces

 

1. Metal braces


Metal braces are very popular, made of high grade stainless steel. Metal braces are small, comfortable, and work very well.

2. Ceramic Braces


Ceramic braces are made of translucent (clear) high quality ceramic material. If you do not wish for metal braces because of their appearance then ceramic braces are for you as they are cosmetically much better.

3. Invisible or clear braces


straight teeth, but cannot bear the thought of having visible braces. So you can smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign has been proven effective in practices worldwide.

4. Damon braces

Very efficient at moving teeth, conventional braces are tied in with elastics, making treatment slower and less comfortable. Damon braces use a slide mechanism to hold the wire. This allows teeth to move more easily, quickly and comfortably. Damon braces are discreet, more comfortable and easier to keep clean. Damon braces also make dental hygiene easier during orthodontic treatment.

 

Removable braces

- can obviously be removed, but they must be worn full-time, apart from when they have to be cleaned. Removable braces are good for correcting simple problems, such as moving a single tooth.


Functional braces

- These are also removable but have to be worn full-time, except for cleaning. They are used to correct the growth pattern of the jaws. They can be used when one jaw is bigger than the other, to correct asymmetry. They can be used in conjunction with headgear to help jaws to grow correctly.


Retainers

Hawley Retainers

- the most common type of retainers. Their components include an acrylic base moulded to your palate, plus a wire to hold your teeth in position. The acrylic can be made available in different colours.


Essix Retainers

- made of clear plastic that are created from moulds of your teeth in their new position. They resemble the Invisalign appliance are rather comfortable and undetectable.




Bonded Wire Retainers

- permanent retainers comprised of flexible thin wires that are accurately contoured to teeth and bonded to the lingual side (inside surface) of the teeth. The material used to cement this retainer is the same material used to repair a fractured front tooth or to bond braces to teeth. One of the great advantages of bonded lingual wire retainers is that they cannot be misplaced, as they are permanently bonded to teeth. They can also be worn full-time indefinitely, provided the patient follows the prescribed care instructions. They are not easily discernible because they are bonded to the lingual side of teeth with a tooth coloured composite.

 

Patients must remember that retention is an important part of treatment as braces are. Without proper and consistent use of these appliances, patients run the risk of allowing the orthodontic results to relapse.
As long as patients follow the doctor's instructions, they can look forward to a beautiful, healthy smile that will not only be functionally healthy and aesthetically pleasing, but will also remain that way for a long-term.

Retainer instructions

Your removable retainer must be worn consistently, day and night for up to 6 months following the end of treatment to allow the bone and gum tissue to remodel around the new tooth positions.

Then 3 months night only wear after the initial 6-month period.

Then 3 months alternate night wear.

The only time it is permissible to remove a retainer is when eating or playing any contact sport or when brushing or flossing your teeth.

 

Maintainance

  • Retainers are very sensitive appliances that must be handled carefully. Do not place them in very hot or cold water as this can warp their shape will have to be replaced.
  • Retainers must be placed in a retainer case you when they are not in your mouth. Wrapping the appliance in a damp paper towel inside the case will prevent any warping of the plastic components.
  • Please try to be mindful of where you place your retainer. A lost retainer does not only incur an additional expense, it will also delay your inactive treatment as you may have to wait while the orthodontic laboratory fabricates a new appliance.

 

Please remember that we are committed in making our best effort towards achieving optimal treatment results. This is a joint effort. We will need our patient's cooperation in order to reach our primary goal; giving our patients a healthy bite and a beautiful smile that will last a life time.



In planning the biomechanical aspects of orthodontic treatment for a specific patient, it is imperative that the orthodontist consider not only the forces required for the necessary tooth movement to achieve the patient's objectives, but also the undesired tooth movement that may occur in response to these forces. In the past, orthodontists have searched for the perfect anchorage in order to minimize these undesired tooth movements. Headgear, elastics, adjacent teeth, and any number of appliances have been suggested as anchorage in the past; however, the main drawback was that they all relied on patient compliance in order to be successful.

Advantages of Mini Implant

Miniscrew implants have recently become a very hot item with regard to implant anchorage, primarily based on their ease of placement and retrieval. These screws may be placed by the dentist using only local anesthetic and retrieved, in some cases, using only topical anesthetic. Once placed, the miniscrew is available for immediate load placement in conjunction with the specified treatment plan. Since miniscrews are retained in the interdental and interradicular alveolar crest, osseointegration is not required. However, since osseointegration is not required, the possibility exists that minor movement of the miniscrews (loss of anchorage) may occur. A final important consideration in the placement of miniscrews is the precise placement between the roots of adjacent teeth and the risks that may be associated with such a technique.

Why do people choose to have braces during adulthood?

Many of the adults you see in braces are being treated for orthodontic problems that were not corrected when they were children, as well as, problems that may arise during adulthood.

 

I see quite a few adults with braces. Is this a growing trend?

Yes, we're observing a growing number of adults in our practice who are taking advantage of the benefits gained from orthodontics. We expect this trend to continue as more adults become aware of modern orthodontic therapy, cosmetic braces, and gentler wires. Because of this trend toward adult orthodontics, we designed our clinic with comfortable adult treatment areas.

 

What are the new technical advances in orthodontics?

Porcelain technology has produced small tooth-coloured brackets that are barely noticeable. Specially alloyed wires are more comfortable, can speed up treatment, and may decrease the number of necessary appointments. Also, in selected cases, orthodontics combined with advanced surgical techniques can dramatically improve facial balance after growth is completed. Invisalign is another treatment option for some patients allowing them to wear a series of clear aligners as opposed to brackets and wires.


Am I too old to have braces?

For those who can benefit from orthodontics, age is not a factor. You are never too old. In fact, many people are treated later as part of a combined orthodontic care e.g. to replace missing teeth.


How long does orthodontic treatment take?

Every orthodontic problem is a little different. In general, active treatment time in braces ranges from one to three years. The actual time depends on a number of factors such as, the complexity of your problem and your cooperation.

Should I continue to see my general dentist while in braces?

Definitely! It's very important that you continue to have regular dental checkups to prevent or determine dental decay and to monitor the health of the supporting structures. Periodic professional dental cleanings by your dentist or dental hygienist will maintain overall dental health and prevent dental disease.



How will I benefit from straight teeth?

Straight teeth make for healthy smiles. That's because properly positioned teeth are much easier to maintain and clean than those that are crowded and crooked. Having straight teeth will help you avoid not only tooth decay, but eventual gum disease and tooth loss. Correction of your bite can help with improved chewing and speech.ill used, but you might be able to get clear braces or braces that are the same colour as your teeth. There are even braces that are behind your teeth where no one can see them.


How does orthodontic care improve self-image?

As with a healthy smile, the benefits of an attractive smile are life long. Scientific research has repeatedly shown the mouth and face to be the focal points of communication and social interaction. There can be little doubt that an attractive facial appearance and smile can improve your quality of life in many dimensions.
