Lingual Orthodontics With Suresmile
Put On Your Smile
No doubt we need braces at different stages of life and no doubt we generally don’t feel comfortable about them, especially if it’s the first time to use one. But you know what? Feel OK. Because hi-tech of our time, makes them really comfortable and usable with ease. Let’s take a brief look at their types and be sure that they are all made for you to have a healthy and beautiful smile.
Types of braces
Traditional and the first unlikable image-maker metal wired braces are stainless steel and are sometimes used in combination with titanium. You may think they are repellent but be sure that with these types of braces, treatment time is reduced, there is less pain on the teeth, and requires fewer adjustments than traditional braces. These braces have a metal bracket with elastic (rubber band) ties holding the wire onto the metal brackets. The second most common type of braces are self-ligating braces that do not require the need of elastic ties. Instead, the wire goes through the bracket.
If you insist on a better aesthetic look, you may choose "Clear" braces. They serve as a cosmetic alternative to traditional metal braces by blending in more with the natural colour of the teeth or having a less conspicuous or hidden appearance. Typically, these brackets are made of ceramic or plastic materials and function in a similar manner to traditional metal brackets. Clear elastic ties and white metal ties are available to be used with these clear braces to help keep the appliances less conspicuous. Alternately, clear braces can be self-ligating, meaning the wire clips into the bracket without the need for ligatures. Clear braces have a higher component of friction and tend to be more brittle than metal braces. This can make removing the appliances at the end of treatment more difficult and time consuming.
If you are allergic to nickel (a basic and important component of stainless steel) gold-plated stainless steel braces are often employed for you, but may also be chosen because some people simply prefer the look of gold over the traditional silver-coloured braces.
Lingual braces are a cosmetic alternative in which custom made braces are bonded to the back of the teeth making them externally invisible.
Titanium braces resemble stainless steel braces but are lighter and just as strong. People with allergies to the nickel in steel often choose titanium braces, but they are more expensive than stainless steel braces.
How They Are Applied?
Farewell To Chips And Sugar Gums. Traditional braces consist of a small bracket that is glued to the front of each tooth and the molars are adjusted with a band that encircles the tooth. An advantage is you can eat and drink while wearing the braces, but a disadvantage is that you must give up certain foods and eating habits while wearing them, such as gum with sugar and potato chips. Another disadvantage is they have to be periodically tightened by an orthodontist, causing increased amounts of discomfort. Yes you may say farewell to chips and gums with sugar for a limited time but doesn’t it worth for a bigger and “sure” smile?
An Option Only For You: Customized orthodontic treatment systems (an example of which is Suresmile) combine high-technology including 3-D imaging, treatment planning software and a robot to custom bend the wire. Customized systems such as this offer faster treatment times and more efficient results. Treatment can be more expensive and is not available at all orthodontists. But you know what? This is available here in Dentalprof.
Most Recent Type: Progressive, clear removable aligners (examples of which are Invisalign, Originator, and ClearCorrect) may be used to gradually move teeth into their final positions. Aligners are generally not used for complex orthodontic cases, such as when extractions, jaw surgery, or palate expansion are necessary. These braces are the most recent type of braces. This technique works by only tilting or rotating the teeth (including the roots), whereas traditional braces can parallel shift the whole tooth (including the roots). The braces are hardly noticeable on the teeth and work to gradually move the teeth into their right position without the need for wires or tightening. Like traditional braces, they do require an improvement in the amount of oral hygiene because they have to be removed to eat and one must brush and floss after every meal.
For less difficult cases, spring aligners are also an option that can cost much less than braces or Invisalign (one example is NightShiftOrtho) and still align primarily the front six top and bottom teeth.
Smart brackets are the latest concept under investigation. The smart bracket contains a microchip that measures the forces that act on the bracket and subsequently, the tooth interface . The aim of these braces is to reduce the duration of orthodontic therapy and the related expenses and discomfort to the individual.
How to take care of your braces?
You may be wearing braces to have a better smile and oral health. That’s fine because it means you have a very short time to have a healthy smile. But you need to take care of your braces and teeth. If you don’t, you may experience different problems like deformation, bad
odours, new decays etc. But brackets and wires make flossing difficult. It’s tough to reach the whole tooth surface with a normal brush. Food may stuck in brackets and wires which increase tooth decay risk. And cavities and tooth stains may occur, when not properly cared.
So how to take care of your braces?
It’s simple and easy.
There are angled brushes to use under and over brackets. Use them and scrub gently.
You can use proxabrush to get under wires. You also can find them with the name “interdental brush”.
You always need to floss but in your particular case, you may want to use a floss threader to get between your teeth.
What to eat and what not to eat?
You have a free life with a brace but need to stay away some no-good food, at least for a short period of time. You can get dairy products (that is milk, cheese etc.), apples (but dices please), berries, whole grain bread and fish.
But you better stay away or avoid popcorn, non-diced(whole) apples, ice, hard candies, sunflower seeds (which is a primary fun in Turkey), bagels, meat on the bone and other sticky food.
