A dental brace is a device that is used to correct crooked or overcrowded teeth and gaps between the teeth. They can also be used to correct a misaligned jaw (also known as malocclusion). The goal of dental braces is the proper alignment of your teeth and jaws, which will improve the appearance of your teeth, as well as your overall oral health and the way you chew, bite, and speak. They work by exerting constant pressure over time to gradually move your teeth and jaw into alignment.
There are several types of braces, including:
Braces are usually used during adolescence. However, more and more people are getting them later on in life.
The procedure is performed in three phases:
Initial placement of the braces
The placement of braces is typically not painful and no anesthesia is involved.
Your orthodontist will adjust your braces periodically by tightening or bending the wires. For clear aligners, you will be fitted for numerous versions of aligners that make a slight adjustment to move your teeth.
To prevent your teeth from shifting back to their original position, you will need to wear retainers for a period of time to stabilize them.
Placement of braces is an outpatient procedure, so you can leave the clinic or hospital on the same day. You may be able to leave Phuket immediately after, but it is recommended that you stay for at least a week as you will experience some discomfort and you need to attend follow-up checkups.
You should be able to resume most of your normal activities the next day. However, you will experience some pain and soreness in your gums and teeth for about a week. After periodic adjustments, you may experience pain and soreness for several days.
Your orthodontist will give you a set of instructions, including the food you should and should not eat, restrictions, how to care for your braces, and pain medications. You need to maintain good oral hygiene, during and after your treatment. Make sure to brush and floss your teeth gently to avoid damaging the brackets and wires. It is recommended that you brush after each meal. You should skip any chewy, sticky, and hard foods while you are wearing braces.
The success rate of braces depends on your age when treatment begins. In general, braces are very effective for people who use them. However, adults may need to wear them longer than a younger person would. Braces are very safe, but they do carry some risks. These risks are tooth decay, gum disease, shorter root length, and loss of correction.
If braces are not the ideal choice for you, you can choose the alternatives, including:
Before wearing braces, your teeth and/or jaw may be misaligned, or you may have overcrowded or crooked teeth. After your braces are removed, you will have straight teeth. Having straight teeth will improve your appearance, your health, as well as the way you speak, chew, and bite.
