Title: Get your teeth straighten | Dental Courses in India

What are braces?
Braces are a collective term used for orthodontic
treatment comprising of three components which
are brackets and wire and elastics. Brackets are
small, square shaped clips that are attached to
the superficial surface of tooth, and wire is
inserted between these brackets and elastic hold
wire to the brackets which apply the pressure to
align the teeth. There are different types of
bites when it comes to dentition aspect which
should be harmonious with the appearance of a
person. In ideal bite, the upper front teeth are
slightly in outward position which overlaps the
lower front teeth in both horizontal and vertical
position when they meet is termed as Occlusion.
When this isnt present in a person, its
considered to be a Malocclusion, and there are
several divisions explaining different types of
Malocclusion. CLASS I is generally for ideal
occlusion. CLASS II is where front teeth are in
far outward position with the lower teeth with
far back position and gives a protruded look.
CLASS III upper teeth are in too back position
and lower teeth are in forward position giving
edge to edge look.
There are other types of bite other then these,
namely CROSSBITE where one or more lower teeth
overlap the upper teeth in front or in back, DEEP
BITE where upper front teeth overlap the lower
front teeth far too much and lower teeth touch
the palate, OPEN BITE where sometimes back teeth
meet and front teeth are apart or front teeth
meet and back teeth are apart from lower teeth.

There are many reasons for the Malocclusion
including genetic disorder, result of an
accident, sometimes bad habits such as thumb
sucking, mouth breathing, tongue thrusting etc.
Facts Orthodontic care
is for everyone with good bone support. It was
considered that only teenagers and children can
benefit out of it but its not true. Anyone not
happy with their smile can go for orthodontic
treatment. If your dentist asks you to go through
few extractions and you are not sure about it,
consult another dentist for your satisfaction.
Always be well informed about the treatment, its
limitations and precautions. Braces are small
brackets attached to the front surface of the
teeth with a bond and it is accompanied by a
stainless steel wire with elastic attached to it
to apply pressure on teeth to give results. When
the treatment is done, an appliance made of
acrylic is given to wear for a certain amount of
time to sustain the result for long period of
time.   There are plenty other options in braces
itself designed for the convenience of the
patients, so you can ask your dentist and choose
the option according to your wish.
Metallic braces
The brackets are metal in nature and the wire
itself is also metal so hence they are known as
Metal braces. They are most conventional and
least expensive orthodontic treatment compared to
other options that is why its more the popular
and chosen orthodontic treatment for misaligned
Ceramic braces
Ceramic braces are known for their brackets color
being same as teeth color so they are partially
not visible. The wire is inserted into these
brackets held by elastics to apply the pressure.
These are most widely accepted and favorable
choice of treatment.
Lingual braces
  Lingual braces totally invisible as they are
placed on the inside of teeth irrespective of
other braces which are placed on outside of
teeth. These types of braces are completely
invisible but it comes with its own disadvantages
and advantages. These braces are irritating to
tongue as they are on inside and only few people
opt for Lingual braces.    
Invisalign Braces/ Smile aligners
Invisalign Braces are new concept in the field
of orthodontics. These are actually not braces
but plastic clear trays those are removable and
causes very less discomfort to the patient. They
generally go under the name of ALIGNERS and
patients having simple cases of crooked teeth are
easily treated by them.
