Teeth Braces

Teeth Braces: It is one of the advanced therapeutic methods in the field of dentistry that aims to solve teeth problems and improve their appearance. The orthodontics department is considered a special branch in dentistry that works on diagnosing and treating problems of teeth, jaw and face, where teeth are gradually moved from their place and directed to become in a harmonious and consistent order.

The duration of orthodontic treatment varies according to the condition of each patient and the type of braces used, and one of the important tips is to take care of the gums and avoid their inflammation and make sure that the teeth do not close irregularly, as this may lead to joint problems and may complicate opening and closing the mouth.

Cases that Need Braces

  1. Irregular Arrangement of Teeth: The case of irregular arrangement of teeth is one of the main reasons for looking for dental braces, and there may be a crowding of teeth or overlapping between them or even a deviation in their natural position, which can lead to problems such as the inability to clean teeth properly and an increased risk of developing cavities and gum inflammation.
  2. Malocclusion: Malocclusion means a misalignment or improper contact between the upper and lower teeth during biting and chewing. This includes cases such as excessive vertical (posterior) overbite or underbite, jaw deformities, excessive or deficient maxillary overjets, and it is necessary to treat malocclusion to improve oral function, chewing, and preserve jaw health.
  3. Jaw Deviation: There may be a deviation in the position of the upper and lower jaw that affects jaw function, biting and chewing, and jaw deviation can cause problems such as difficulty opening and closing the mouth, abnormal sounds during biting, and if left untreated, jaw deviation can lead to the development of other problems such as speech difficulties and temporomandibular joint inflammation.
  4. Tooth Deficiency or Excess: Cases of tooth deficiency or excess are common reasons that lead people to seek orthodontic treatment. There may be a lack of some teeth or the appearance of additional teeth, and treating these cases may require moderate alignment of the teeth and restoring the natural balance in the dental arrangement.
  5. Hereditary Problems: Some hereditary problems in the jaw affect the position and arrangement of the teeth and can result in a protruding jaw, tooth deformities, and bite problems. It is important to have these problems diagnosed early by an orthodontist to achieve optimal treatment results.

If you are thinking about getting braces, you may face a variety of available options. In this simple list, we will present some well-known types of braces with pictures and highlight the main advantages and disadvantages of each type.

  1. Metal Braces:
  • Metal braces are the most popular and widely used type.
  • They consist of metal brackets that wrap around the back of your teeth.
  • They provide strong control over tooth movement.
  • They can be less expensive compared to some other options.
  • They may be visibly noticeable, which means some people may feel self-conscious wearing them.
  1. Clear Braces:
  • They are characterized by their transparency, making them less visibly noticeable.
  • They use a clear system that relies on custom-made plastic aligners for your teeth.
  • The aligners are changed regularly to achieve gradual tooth movement.
  • They provide more comfort for patients due to less friction between the aligners and teeth.
  • They can be slightly more expensive than some other types.

  • They feature brackets made of a light-colored ceramic material.
  • They work to move teeth faster than clear braces.

Duration of Braces

The duration of braces varies from one patient to another and depends on the individual’s condition. Although there is no specific time for each case, multiple factors affect the final result. Generally, the duration of traditional braces ranges from 18 months to 3 years, and other types may take less time, such as gap closure which can take less than 6 months. Patients are advised to wear braces regularly and follow the necessary care to maintain the braces’ cleanliness.

What is the Appropriate Age for Braces?

The appropriate age for braces depends on several factors. If there is a jaw problem, the ideal age for braces is before puberty. However, if the patient has a teeth problem, treatment can be done at any age. Generally, doctors recommend installing braces when the teeth are more responsive to movement, usually between 12 and 15 years old. However, this does not prevent braces from being installed at other ages, as treatment can be done at any specific time, regardless of age.

Stages of Braces

Learn more about the stages of braces installation:

  1. Medical Diagnosis: In this stage, the orthodontist determines the appropriate type of braces for you based on a comprehensive assessment of your jaw and teeth condition. This assessment may include taking X-rays and analyzing the risk of tooth decay.
  2. Placing Brackets or Archwires: After diagnosis, the brackets or archwires will be attached to the teeth using a special adhesive. The archwires are connected by metal wires to achieve the desired tooth alignment.
  3. Adjusting Archwires: During the treatment period, the archwires will be adjusted regularly to achieve the desired change in tooth arrangement. This may require changing the length of the archwires or modifying the wires.
  4. Regular Follow-up: You should have regular visits with the orthodontist to ensure the progress of the braces and make adjustments as needed. Additional modifications or accessories may be required.
  5. Removing Braces: Once the desired arrangement is achieved, the brackets or archwires will be removed. You may need to have a fixed retainer after removing the braces to maintain the new tooth arrangement.
  6. Maintaining the Arrangement: After orthodontic treatment, you may need to use a retainer, such as a fixed or removable retainer. This aims to maintain the arrangement and prevent changes in tooth position.
  7. Following Instructions: It is important to follow the instructions provided by the orthodontist after treatment. This may include wearing removable retainers or properly cleaning your teeth.

When Do Braces Results Appear?

The time it takes for braces results to appear varies according to several different factors. Usually, braces results start to show after a period ranging between 2 to 3 months. The orthodontic process is divided into two main stages: initial alignment and tooth alignment. In the initial alignment, improvement in tooth position may appear after 3 months of starting to wear braces.

However, a longer period should be allowed to see the full results of braces. Generally, braces may take between 18 to 24 months to achieve the desired results, and the patient will have the opportunity to observe changes in the appearance of their teeth during this period.

Dental Care During Braces

When you have braces, maintaining oral and dental health becomes essential. Here are some important tips for caring for your teeth while wearing braces:

  1. Daily Teeth Cleaning: Clean your teeth daily using a soft-bristled toothbrush and toothpaste. Place the brush at a 45-degree angle and clean the teeth with a circular motion on each tooth surface, including the brackets and wires.
  2. Using Mouthwash: Use an antibacterial mouthwash to help remove food residue and plaque buildup between the teeth and brackets.
  3. Cleaning the Tongue: Don’t forget to clean your tongue as well. Use a toothbrush to remove bacteria buildup on the tongue.
  4. Cleaning the Braces: Clean the braces regularly using mouthwash or a salt water solution. This will help remove dirt and bacteria buildup on the braces.
  5. Avoiding Hard and Sticky Foods: You should avoid eating hard and sticky foods that can stick to the braces and cause gum irritation or damage the braces.
  6. Using Dental Floss: Use orthodontic floss to reach tight spaces between the teeth and wires. Gently thread it to remove food and plaque.
  7. Cleaning Teeth at Additional Times: You may need to clean your teeth more frequently throughout the day if you consume multiple meals. Before cleaning, rinse your mouth with water to remove any remaining food particles.
