The first thing that comes to your mind when you think of braces are the metal braces. They are made of premium quality stainless steel or titanium. With advance in technology, today’s braces are small, comfortable for the patient and maintain a low profile. Metal braces are the most commonly used braces among patients of all age groups. Be it a teenager or an adult, metal braces along with colored elastics can add color to your smile. Even in terms of cost-effective treatment options, metal braces are the most sought after.
Traditional metal dental braces are the most common type of braces and are more comfortable today than ever before. Made of high-grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and arch wires.
With metal dental braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile. Self-ligating braces are also available, which do not require colored elastics.
Getting your braces on takes one to two hours. Depending on your teeth and the kind of braces you’re going to wear, the process for putting them on could happen in one appointment or two.
Usually, orthodontists do not recommend tooth extraction for fixing teeth braces. However, if someone’s teeth are too protrusive, the extraction of teeth remains the best orthodontic treatment to reduce this issue.
The benefits of having straight teeth are much more than a confident smile. You will get healthier teeth and gyms, therefore, with proper brushing and flossing, you are avoiding periodontal problems, such as tooth decay and gum diseases in the future. Straight teeth also affect the way you chew the food, therefore you have a better digestion. Properly aligned teeth can also eliminate the issues that can be caused by a wrong bite, speech problems or chewing perplexity, jaw troubles, and extensive wear on the tooth enamel.
Braces do not often hurt, though you may feel a small amount of discomfort for a couple days as your teeth, gums, cheeks, and mouth get used to your new braces. But worry not – your dentist will prescribe you analgesics (pain medications) to help relieve discomfort for a more comfortable recovery.
With braces, you should brush your teeth at least three times a day to keep your teeth, gums, and mouth healthy and clean. Brushing regularly will help remove any food that may be caught between your braces.
You should also floss daily to get between your braces where your brush isn’t able to reach. Pearl Dental experts can show you how to brush and floss properly once your braces are placed.
