What Type of Braces Should I Get?

Braces are dental orthodontic tools that are used to align your bite and straighten your teeth. These devices aid in the restoration of smile confidence as well as the improvement of oral health.

How do braces work? They correct problems with tooth and jaw alignment by applying gentle, consistent pressure to the dental roots over time. The bone around the root changes as a result, allowing the tooth to shift into a new location. This procedure is carried out at a gradual pace to allow the jawbone to adjust and restructure to the new bite position. After the braces are removed and the treatment is finished, a retainer is normally worn until the teeth have fully settled into their new position.

If you do decide to have braces, you now have a variety of options thanks to contemporary technology. Here are some of the possibilities:

Traditional braces are constructed of stainless steel brackets that are affixed to the front teeth. After that, tiny rubber bands are used to secure the light wires to the brackets.

Ceramic braces – These appliances work in the same way as traditional braces, except the brackets are constructed of ceramic. Brackets come in a variety of hues and can be clear or tooth colored to mix in with the rest of your teeth. If you want to make a statement, they also come in a range of colors.

Brackets and wires are used in lingual braces, as they are in most others. From the inside, the brackets are attached to the teeth. They are normally custom-made in a dental laboratory to match the backs of your teeth but they are more expensive.

  • Each adjustment visit usually needs more time.
  • It’s possible that it’ll be more difficult to keep clean and uncomfortable to wear.
  • It can take a little longer to finish your tooth movement or alignment.
  • Not all orthodontists provide this therapy.
  • It is not possible to correct all types of orthodontic issues.

“Invisible” retainers – This approach entails a set of thin mouthguard-like retainers made of clear plastic that apply pressure and progressively shift the teeth, just like traditional braces.

This technique entails a series of thin mouthguard-like retainers made of clear plastic that apply pressure to the teeth and move them slowly, similar to regular braces. Retainers that aren’t visible are frequently referred to as “invisible braces.”

As the teeth gradually shift into new places, you’ll need to switch to a new aligner every 1-3 weeks. Below are some other requirements:


  • It must be worn for around 22 hours every day.
  • It is not possible to correct all types of orthodontic issues.
  • Removable appliances and bone-anchored devices are two other orthodontic solutions.
  • In terms of treatment time, most people wear braces for 1-3 years on average. This, however, will be dependent on the patient and their individual requirements.
You're All Awesome!!
