Full-Service dental office in Thornhill providing orthodontic treatment solutions
Dental braces, commonly used in orthodontics, are useful for aligning teeth and improving overall dental health; they gradually adjust the teeth’s alignment to optimize your bite. Additionally, braces can solve many problems associated with misaligned biting profiles, crooked teeth, and other teeth and jaw flaws. Braces can also be an excellent dental health investment for the long term. Since there are fewer gaps for bacteria to build up with better-aligned teeth, cavities are less likely to occur in the future.
On top of the health benefits that come with straightening your teeth, they give your smile a significant cosmetic boost!
Process of Getting Braces
Typically, four elements make up a brace: brackets, bonding material, archwire, and ligature plastic. The archwire is continuously putting pressure on the brackets and the teeth, which gradually adjusts the teeth towards the desired placement. During this process, the teeth become loose and force the bone to remodel itself to support the teeth in their new arrangement. This process is called “bone remodeling.”
Typically, braces need between six months to two and a half years to complete tooth alignment. Occasionally, orthodontic spacers must create enough space on the back teeth before braces can be applied.
TYPES OF BRACES
Our specialized orthodontists at Emerald Dental Clinic evaluate every patient personally to provide each individual with the best orthodontic plan. Among the options for the type of braces that you may use, the most common ones are:
- Made from stainless steel and sometimes with titanium.
- May have rubber bands that hold the wire onto the metal brackets.
- May have no rubber bands, and the wire passes through the brackets (reduced treatment time, less pain, fewer adjustments required)
May be used in the case of an allergy to nickel (found in stainless steel), or in the case for the aesthetic appeal of gold over silver braces.
Lingual may be used as a more cosmetic alternative to traditional braces and is bond to the back of the teeth and away from view.
Titanium braces may be used in the case of an allergy to nickel or stainless steel and are Lighter than stainless steel but equally strong. As you expect , these braces are more expensive than traditional stainless steel braces.
A high-tech approach involving 3D computer models, treatment planning software, and custom made wire to achieve a faster treatment time than with traditional braces.
May be used to gradually move teeth to their desired location when orthodontic treatment is not complicated.
a. May be a more cosmetic alternative due to the invisibility of the aligners.
b. It can be more convenient than traditional braces and just as effective.
