PICK THE BEST BRACES

If you are thinking about getting braces for yourself or for your child, our orthodontist in Gurgaon will help you make the best choice for your scenario, but let’s know the basics of each type—


INVISIBLE BRACES / INVISALIGN
Invisible Braces are the best thing you can have to correct your smile. A chain of crystal clear plastic trays fit over your teeth exactly. Each tray moves your teeth slightly at a time until they are in the accurate position.

 

Pros: Absolutely invisible; Patients can easily eat and drink, patient-friendly, and give results very quickly.

 

LINGUAL BRACES
Lingual braces are identical to traditional metal braces, except that the brackets and wires are positioned on the inside of the teeth.

 

Pros: Invisible from outside

 

CERAMIC BRACES
Ceramic braces are the same shape and size as metal braces, except that they have clear brackets or tooth-colored that blend in to teeth. Some use tooth-colored wires to be even less visible.

 

Pros: Less visible than metal braces

 

METAL BRACES/TRADITIONAL BRACES
They are wires and metal brackets that people visualize when they hear the word ‘braces’. However, modern brackets are smaller and less visible than the notorious ‘metal-mouth’ braces that many adults remember. Plus, new heat-activated archwires use the heat of your body to help teeth shift more quickly and less painfully than in the past.

 

Pros: Very economical

 

TAKING CARE OF YOUR TEETH WITH BRACES--

  • Proper brushing and flossing is indispensable for people with braces

  • Avoid eating sticky foods, hard foods, and sugary foods

  • Avoid drinks and foods that cause stains or discoloration
