Braces are a preferred technique by many dentists for treating various dental flaws. Many dental patients suffer from gaps between their teeth or misalignment and crookedness. Doctors diagnose many cases of misaligned jaw teeth and gum crowding with too many teeth growing over each other in many children from age 6 to adulthood.

Dentists always ensure to install braces for a time period that guarantees their proper fixation and stability.

Duration of braces for adults

The duration of installing braces for all cases cannot be precisely determined, as the duration varies depending on the medical history of each case or the level of progression and development of the symptoms, in addition to many other factors, one of the most important being age, so it is noticed that the elderly need longer time periods to fully heal and achieve the desired results compared to children or adolescents under 20 years, and the average installation of braces ranges between 12 or 18 months in the normal but in the elderly it can reach up to 30 months.

Duration of braces for simple cases

Stages of braces

The process of installing braces is carried out in several steps and the doctor determines these procedures based on the patient’s condition, so let’s mention these steps in detail below:

  • The first diagnostic stage: This stage begins with the first session in which the doctor requests X-rays and analyses that help him diagnose the patient’s condition and determine the problem and its causes and establish the treatment protocol, and the doctor in this session carefully examines the jaws to be able to determine the necessary treatment duration.
  • The second stage of installing the device: After examining the patient, the doctor determines with the patient the type of brace suitable for him, and depending on the raw material of each type, the duration required for its installation varies to ensure the correction of dental defects completely, then the doctor installs the brace device.
  • Adhering to regular sessions with the doctor: Dentists ensure to follow up all changes that occur after installing braces to monitor the success and progress occurring during the treatment period and intervene as necessary in case of any problems before any complications occur to the teeth and jaws.
  • Removing braces: After monitoring the success of all steps of adjusting and moving the teeth towards the correct direction of the braces wires and arranging them in a sequential order during the medical sessions, the doctor removes the braces from the surface of the teeth and takes pictures of the teeth to compare them with the X-rays before installing the braces.
  • The final stage of fixing the teeth: There are two types of retainers that are installed after removing the braces, and the results after the braces determine the suitable type of retainer whether it is a removable or fixed retainer for each case, and the doctor closely follows the changes and adjustments occurring after installing the retainer, and enjoy the amazing results and permanent stability after the braces, as we use modern and advanced techniques to move the teeth in a healthy and beautiful way in The Dental Center.

Tips during the duration of prominent teeth braces

There are some medical guidelines that the doctor advises the patient to follow in order to maintain the results of the braces and enhance them and increase the patient’s comfort, and these tips are summarized as follows:

  • Alleviating the pain resulting from installing braces by rinsing with a mixture of warm water and salt.
  • Brushing teeth with toothpaste to prevent the accumulation of food residues and the growth of bacteria and tooth decay.
  • Eating only foods allowed by the doctor and avoiding hard and sticky foods.
  • Sticking to warm drinks and avoiding sweetened or carbonated ones.
  • Regularlyattending sessions to adjust the braces wires due to the gradual movement of the teeth.

What happens after orthodontic treatment?

The orthodontic technique aims to regulate the teeth and correct their crookedness and fix the jaws’ defects and add brightness and attractiveness to the smile, and the changes that occur to the teeth and jaw bones depend entirely on the extent of the technique’s procedures application and the patient’s adherence to the medical instructions during and after the treatment stage, and these changes can be summarized after removing the braces as follows:

  • Organizing the teeth and stabilizing them in an orderly sequence in their new places.
  • The ability to eat and chew food well without being deprived of any type of food or feeling embarrassed.
  • Cleaning the teeth freely and without any obstacle.
  • Using dental floss to clean the teeth without any caution.
  • Tooth sensitivity and weakness of their structure due to the weakening of the enamel layer covering them.
  • Appearance of yellow stains on the surface of the teeth due to the inability to clean them well during the installation of braces.
  • Resorting to installing retainers or other types of braces after removing the basic braces in some cases that need more support to complete their healing.
  • Possible appearance of some signs or tissue residues on the lips.

And after removing the braces, the doctor cleans the teeth, especially the area where the braces were installed on its surface, and gets rid of any remaining residues from food or drink deposits and adhesive materials or orthodontic tissues and disinfects the mouth and may resort to teeth whitening sessions in some cases, and in all cases after the doctor ensures achieving the desired results from installing braces, it is necessary to install retainers to maintain these results and ensure no adverse results occur.

When do teeth start moving after removing braces?

It is possible for the teeth to move away from their new places after removing the braces even if slight movements, which causes concern for many cases, but doctors can control this by installing retainers for many months after removing the bands or braces wires directly until they give stiffness to the jaw bones and teeth and stabilize them in the new places.

The difference between jaw protrusion and teeth protrusion

Some cases suffer from protrusion problems whether in the jaw or teeth, and there is a difference between the two and a difference in the symptoms that appear on the patient, and the difference between them can be explained through explaining their definitions as follows:

  1. Jaw protrusion: It is about protrusions in one of the jaws or both, and most cases of jaw protrusion are due to genetic or health causes or causes that appear at birth and may result from exposure to stimulating factors such as jaw collision or placing fingers in the mouth, and the only solution to treat jaw protrusion problems is undergoing surgeries aimed at correcting the jaw or installing braces.
  2. Teeth protrusion: Usually, children and adults suffer from teeth protrusion problems where there is a mismatch between the upper and lower jaw teeth together and protrusion of the upper jaw teeth and their length being longer than the length of the lower jaw teeth in what is known as a misaligned bite which requires quick therapeutic intervention.

Treating teeth protrusion without braces

Usually, dentists resort to installing braces to get rid of teeth protrusion problems, but there are some patients who do not prefer installing braces due to its high cost or their reluctance to feel embarrassed by its appearance on the surface of their teeth or it not being suitable for their medical condition, and in this case, the solution is to undergo jaw orthodontic operations, and doctors always advise patients to quickly get treatment so as not to occur other exacerbations that are difficult to treat.

Corrective surgery works on adjusting the angles of jaw bone deviation so that it becomes straight and fixed in another correct place, and gives the teeth an attractive shape and sufficient support for performing their functional tasks perfectly, thereby aiming to prevent tooth decay later, we understand the importance of a balanced and attractive smile, so we offer an effective and comfortable solution to correct the protrusion of the front teeth without braces at The Dental Center.
