Types of Braces
- Traditional metal braces are made of the stainless steel brackets and wires that inspired the term “metal mouth” years ago. Fortunately, today’s metal braces are noticeably smaller. And new heat-activated arch wires move your teeth more quickly and less painfully as they respond to your body’s heat. We use only 3M metal braces or Ormco metal braces, we do not use cheap chinese metal braces.
- Ceramic braces mock metal braces in shape and size but they use tooth-colored or clear ceramic brackets that blend more naturally into your teeth. Some even use tooth-colored wires to keep your treatment even lower profile. 3M Ceramic Braces & Damon Ceramic Braces
- Lingual braces (inside braces) use the same metal brackets and wires used in traditional braces, but the brackets and wires are installed on the inside of your teeth to keep them hidden.
- Invisalign consists of a series of customized, clear BPA-free plastic tray aligners that are removable and typically replaced every 2 weeks to keep your teeth moving in the desired direction.
Treatment Time Period
The length of treatment depends on your situation and the type of braces you are wearing. Typically, braces are worn from 18 to 24 months, though they are sometimes worn longer. Ceramic braces, while strong and better looking, often take more time because they are not as strong as metal braces. Inside braces also can take more time to work effectively.
The treatment times with clear aligners vary depending on the type of clear aligner used and type of correction of teeth. Treatment times vary and can range from 12 to 24 months depending on the specific alignment problem; treatment for moderate cases may require as many as 32 steps while minor cases may require as minimal as 12 steps.
The cost of invisible braces is usually higher than traditional orthodontic treatment. Your specific braces cost is determined by factors that include the type and duration of treatment, any other restorative work needed before or throughout treatment.
Once treatment plan is finalized as to which kind of braces are best suited for you the procedure of placing braces or clear aligners on your teeth will start.
Treatment Procedure with Best Braces Dentist in Gurgaon
Initial Placement of Braces
This first appointment of active treatment usually requires one to two hours for placement of the appliance(s) and/or braces with time to review instructions for the care and cleaning of the appliance(s). Due to the length of this appointment, we generally schedule this appointment in the morning or early afternoon. One might feel slight discomfort or tightness or teeth being spread apart kind of feeling after this visit.
This phase of treatment includes monthly evaluation visits (for patients in Comprehensive Treatment) and appliance adjustment visits (for patients in Phase I Treatment). These visits usually occur every three to six weeks and are approximately 30 minutes long. Periodic progress reports and records will be taken throughout the active period of treatment to ensure a high standard of quality and adherence to the patient’s individualized treatment plan.
Removal of Appliance
The removal of orthodontic appliances usually takes about one hour. Instructions for retention appliances, such as a retainer, will be given at this appointment.
Patients will return to our office one month after the retention appliance has been delivered. After that appointment, visits will typically take place every two to four months. During the retention appointments, the retainer is examined, adjusted and corrected to ensure proper function. It is important that the patient follow the doctor’s instructions on wearing the retention appliance and during the whole orthodontic treatment and immediately report any breakage or lost part of wire, elastics, bracket, trays or retainers etc in order to prevent relapses.
