CONVENTIONAL BRACES (STRAIGHTENING TEETH)
Dental conventional braces are a part of orthodontic treatment used to correct teeth that are crowded, crooked, protruding, out of alignment or have irregular spacing. Braces help teeth to move into ideal position and hence improve the overall appearance and give out an attractive smile. Crooked teeth can cause a lot of difficulties such as difficulty to maintain oral hygiene, improper bite, tooth decay, gum diseases and thus a possibility of tooth loss.
This Orthodontic procedure is not just for maintaining an attractive smile. Braces help you to keep your teeth aligned properly allowing you to maintain oral hygiene. They minimise the occurrence of cavities by facilitating cleaning of your teeth. They also help in correcting improper bite, thus saving the enamel from wearing out.
Braces mainly consist of two components namely Brackets and Arch Wires. Brackets can be made of metal, ceramic, composite or a combination of these materials depending on your requirement. With the use of latest technology at URS Dental you can
- Choose different bracket shapes and different colour elastics.
- Choose Gold-plated brackets as well.
- Brackets are much smaller and can be attached to the back of the teeth to make them less noticeable and avoid the requirement of the old-fashioned wire or elastic ties to hold the wires in place.
Arch wires are attached to the brackets and they act as a navigator to align the teeth in desired position by applying pressure. Arch Wires can also be used to reposition the tooth and underlying roots by causing minimal discomfort.
At URS Dental braces are available not only for children but also to adults. Adults can also undergo this orthodontal procedure to correct alignment, spacing, crowding and malocclusion problems. The process for moving teeth is basically the same at any age however, the treatment may take longer for adults. This is due to the fact that adult facial bones are fully grown, and certain corrections may not be possible utilizing braces alone.
