The doctor works on treating the teeth before installing the braces and then fixing the material after its removal to achieve teeth free of any problems or defects, improving their overall appearance and thereby positively reflecting on the patient’s mental health. It also preserves the teeth from loss or damage, improves the functional tasks of the teeth and their tolerance to all the stresses and changing conditions that occur in the mouth, and enables speaking without embarrassment when pronouncing some letters change and the ability to bite and chew food well and withstand different temperatures when consuming various drinks and foods.

When do the teeth change shape after braces?

Dental braces, a technique followed with the aim of correcting crooked and problematic teeth, can cause patients to rush to see results immediately after installation. However, the braces technique takes a long time in treatment for the patient to achieve the desired results. The teeth begin to change shape after installing the braces over a period ranging between one and three years, but the patient notices initial changes on their teeth within the first three months after installing the braces.

Some factors affecting the duration of teeth shape change can be mentioned as follows:

  • The distance between the teeth, where larger spaces require a longer treatment period.
  • The degree of teeth protrusion, the more protruding the teeth, the longer the period needed for them to start moving back to their correct position.
  • The extent to which the patient follows the medical instructions and advice prescribed by the doctor regarding teeth cleaning during the treatment stage.
  • Adhering to appointments with the doctor to ensure the safety of the braces and teeth.
  • The age group of the patient, children respond more to treatment and results appear faster and better in their cases compared to the slow response and long treatment duration in elderly patients.
  • The type of braces used determines the time period the patient needs until the teeth start to change shape.

When do the results of braces start to appear?

The speed of the appearance of braces results depends on the age or age group of the patient, where results appear in short time periods that can reach 3 months in cases of installing braces at early stages of life. The role of braces is to tighten the teeth and jaws and try to return them to their correct position in the gums or jaw. To achieve this result, the patient must adhere to regular follow-ups with the doctor to review the results of the braces always and adjust them when needed. Braces work in two stages, the first stage being the initial alignment during the first months, and results start to appear during this stage after 3 months, then the second stage is aligning the teeth with each other, a therapeutic stage that continues from 12 months to 18 months.

What is the shortest duration for dental braces?

There is no fixed duration for dental braces to deliver the desired results, as the time period required for braces to correct dental defects varies from one patient to another due to differences in the medical condition and history of each patient. However, there are some factors that affect the specified period for braces and determine the length or shortness of this time period, let us clarify these factors in the following points:

  • The age group of the patient.
  • The problem or disease that the braces must treat.
  • The type of dental braces used.
  • The gaps and spaces between the teeth.
  • The health of the mouth, gums, and teeth.
  • The strength and hardness of the jawbones and tissues.
  • How to apply medical instructions and advice and their accuracy.

After adhering to the above factors, the doctor can determine the time period for installing braces for each case and its therapeutic response. Dentists may give a relative and not accurate average of the time period that braces can be installed, ranging between one and three years.

How Dental Braces Work

The general technique of installing dental braces relies on installing brackets that continuously press on the teeth for a specified period, helping the teeth return to their correct places and arranging them in an orderly shape.

Dental braces for children depend on installing rubber bands and wires that maintain the correct places for the teeth in the mouth; because the wires facilitate the movement of the teeth while the rubber bands adjust the alignment of the teeth to each other. The doctor installs a retainer after removing the braces for a specified period that may reach two years or wear it only at night for several years depending on the patient’s condition and health requirements.

The Best Age for Dental Braces

Dental braces can be installed for all patients of different age groups as it is a safe technique, but dentists prefer to start installing braces in children from the age of 12 or 13 years due to the continuous growth of the jaw at this stage, which makes the treatment period short and speeds up the healing process. Your child’s smile is our priority! Therefore, we offer excellent dental braces services at The Dental Center.

Results of Dental Braces Before and After

The results of dental braces are satisfying for both the doctor and the patient, giving them the desired results as dental braces operations are characterized by high success rates and treating all dental problems with high precision. One of the precautionary measures after removing the braces is installing a retainer for a period until no relapse or crookedness occurs again.

There are types of retainers, and the doctor chooses the suitable retainer for each patient and determines the time period the patient needs the retainer. Doctors always advise patients to be careful about cleaning their teeth and braces from any food remnants stuck to them and reduce foods rich in sugars and starches and any acidic foods.

Shapes of Dental Braces Before and After Installation

One of the most frequently asked questions among many dental patients is how the shape of the teeth changes before and after installing braces. This is due to everyone’s eagerness to have healthy and bright teeth and a radiant smile. The answer is that braces continuously press on the teeth for long periods, gradually moving them until the jaw adapts to the pressure and forms the new shape of the teeth as a result of the quick response of the membrane that connects the teeth to the jaw, facilitating the movement of the teeth.

The process of installing dental braces is not painful and is completed within an hour or two, but making adjustments might be accompanied by some pain. The place of the teeth gradually changes due to the continuous pressure on them. Recently, many types of braces have been provided, and the doctor chooses the type suitable for the patient’s health condition. We will display the most popular types of braces below:

Internal braces

Internal braces

  • Internal Braces: Also known as lingual metal braces, it is the optimal choice for patients who do not prefer the general appearance of their teeth when installing traditional frontal braces brackets. This type of braces consists of small-sized metal pieces and is installed behind the teeth.

Clear braces

  • Clear Braces: Characterized by the ease of removing and reinstalling them, this type of braces consists of a clear plastic mold that takes the shape and measurements of the patient’s teeth, preferred by dentists in simple, uncomplicated cases.

  • Metal Dental Braces: The first form of dental braces, made from stainless steel material, preferred by many young people always because of the freedom to choose the colors of the rubber bands with it.

Steps of the Dental Braces Process

The process of installing dental braces consists of several steps that we will mention below:

  1. Medical Examination: Searching for the best medical center or dentist specialized in installing dental braces for a medical examination that helps the doctor identify the problem and develop a treatment protocol that suits the patient’s condition and medical history.
  2. Undergoing X-rays: Imaging the patient’s mouth to determine the extent of damage and severity of the problem the patient is suffering from to specifically identify the affected area and the number of teeth or molars affected and how to treat it.
  3. Extracting Teeth: Extracting teeth is a common procedure for most advanced or developed cases where the doctor determines the severely damaged teeth and extracts them so as not to extend the infection to the rest of the teeth, and in most cases, the extra teeth or front molars are the most susceptible to severe infection.
  4. Adjusting Spaces When Installing Braces: The doctor measures the distance between the teeth using medical measuring tools, ensures the spacers are spaced correctly in their places, and makes the distance between all the teeth suitable using spacer tools or separator tools.
  5. Taking Teeth Measurements: After extracting the damaged or extra teeth and creating appropriate spaces between the teeth, the doctor takes the adjusted measurements of the patient’s teeth using medical molds, which usually help in determining the structure of the braces installation.
  6. Adding Links to the Braces: The doctor places metal strips around the molar teeth to act as links between different parts of the mouth, and bonding methods have evolved due to tremendous technological progress recently and are now installed only on the back teeth, not all teeth in the mouth.
  7. Connecting the Links to Each Other: This step is exploratory in the patient’s mouth with the help of a special viewing tool, where the doctor performs a teeth cleaning step in the clinic with paste then drying them; to place all links in their correct place and remove the excess, and the doctor ensures the main location of the links with blue light.
  8. Adjusting Braces Wires: The doctor connects the braces wires with the brackets with the help of some plastic materials.
  9. Making Adjustments to the Braces to Suit the Patient: The doctor continuously examines each session of braces connections to adjust the orthodontic rubber bands to suit the patient’s teeth movement during talking and eating.
  10. Removing Braces: This stage is the last after achieving the desired results from the braces, the doctor sets an appointment to remove the brackets and wires from the teeth.

  3.
