What Is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is the dentistry branch that addresses the diagnosis, prevention, interception, guidance, and correction of bad bites or dental irregularities, including the use of braces.

Orthodontists are registered dental specialists who have completed an additional three years of full-time University training in orthodontics, facial growth and development, biology and biomechanics (they hold a General Dental Degree + Specialist Orthodontic Degree).

Types Of Braces

Few people are lucky enough to be born with perfect teeth, but orthodontic treatment can make a huge difference to you or your child. Your orthodontist may recommend any of the following types of braces or dental appliances to help correct your particular problem.

1. Metal Braces

Metal braces, made from high-grade stainless steel, are the most popular type of braces. They have improved to become lighter and more convenient than ever before. Metal brackets are attached to the teeth using orthodontic adhesive and allow their positioning to be altered as a need. In Sadguru Dental Clinic, You have the option of customizing your traditional metal braces by adding colored elastic ties.

2. Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces function in the same way as metal braces but ceramic braces are clear & less visible Compared to metal brackets, ceramic braces are less noticeable and present affordable. Ceramic braces are also slightly larger than metal braces and can stain depending on diet and brushing habits.

3. Lingual Braces

Lingual braces are placed behind the teeth (by the tongue and palate), rather than in front, and therefore offer a great cosmetic alternative for those who want their teeth straightened, without the braces showing.

The process for lingual braces involves taking an impression of the teeth, which is then sent to a dental laboratory and used to create customized brackets. The process takes about six weeks and, once complete, allows the orthodontist to use a specific process to cement the braces onto the back surfaces of your teeth.

4. Self-ligating

Self-ligating braces can be metal & ceramic braces that look similar to traditional braces. These braces utilize clips in place of elastics bands to secure the wire in place. In these braces, less friction and force are applied to teeth. It’s easier to keep teeth clean, tooth movement can be faster, and may need fewer adjustment appointments.

5. Lingual braces

Lingual braces are made from metal like traditional braces but they are connected to the inside of the teeth so that they cannot be easily seen from the outside. Lingual braces are hidden behind the teeth, so there are advantages of not being visible to other people.

6. Invisalign

Invisalign aligners are custom-made, comfortable acrylic aligners. this aligner is simple to remove and replace with the next one in the series every two weeks during the treatment phase. Most people require between 18 and 30 different aligners to achieve the desired result. Invisalign aligners allow you to eat and drink whatever you want.
