DENTAL BRACES

What are Dental Braces? Dental braces are tools that are used by dental professionals to straighten crooked teeth or correct a misaligned bite. The brace helps to reposition the teeth with an aim to adjust the bite and result in a beautifully straight smile.

  People should brace their teeth if they have

  • Overcrowded or crooked teeth
  • Upper front teeth that bite behind the lower ones (underbite)
  • Other jaw misalignment problems that cause an uneven bite
  • Too much space between teeth
  • Upper front teeth that overlap the lower teeth too much — either vertically (overbite) or horizontally (overjet)

Proper bracing of your teeth and jaws may improve not only the appearance of your teeth but also the health of your mouth and the way you bite, chew, and speak.

Types of braces

  • Metal braces
  • Ceramic braces
  • Self-ligating braces
  • Lingual braces
  • Clear aligners like Invisalign

BENEFITS OF BRACING YOUR TEETH

  • Improved oral health

Braces can straighten misaligned teeth, contributing to healthy gums and teeth. Braces can help you maintain excellent oral hygiene and prevent future periodontal disease and cavities..

  • Prevent jawbone erosion

Misaligned teeth can result in jawbone erosion or bone loss. This happens when bacteria start eating away at the bones. Braces help align the teeth and prevent jawbone erosion.

  • Boost your confidence

While braces are certainly important for your health, they can also play an important role in boosting your confidence. When you have crooked teeth, you might not feel like showing off your smile. This can lead to low self-esteem and anxiety. But when your teeth are well-aligned and you have a beautiful smile, you might be more at ease when talking, smiling, or showing off your teeth.

  • Improve your speech

If you have teeth that are misaligned, you may have chronic speech problems or make whistling sounds when saying certain words. Braces can fix misalignment and possibly help you get rid of speech problems and lead to correct pronunciation

Do braces hurt?

Having braces put on takes around one to two hours. After a couple of hours, you may experience some discomfort, pain, and soreness in your teeth and gums. However, this pain lasts only about a week until your braces are properly adjusted in your mouth.

Tips to deal with the pain

  • Dental wax

Your orthodontist might recommend using firm and stretchy dental wax, which you can apply to the tough and metal segments of your braces. This will minimize friction and rubbing against the sensitive parts of your mouth. It will also reduce pain.

  • Warm rinse

Gargling with warm salt water can offer relief from sores or cuts in your mouth caused by the braces.

  • Gum massage

Gently rub your gums in a circular fashion with any of your fingers. This will help you relax your gums if they’re swollen by the braces.

  • Frozen teething rings

Teething rings can be a very effective tool for combating braces pain. You can chew the frozen teething ring and keep moving it to the places that hurt the most. Gradually, the frozen teething ring will alleviate the pain.

  • Oral anesthetics

Oral anesthetics like Anbesol and Orajel can be applied to your sensitive teeth and gums using either a cotton swab or your finger. Oral anesthetics desensitize gums and teeth, so you won’t feel the pain and discomfort of shifting teeth so acutely.

  • Ice pack

Icing the area can minimize inflammation and numb the mouth, providing pain relief. Apply an ice pack or gel pack outside of your mouth for relief from braces pain.

Ways to reduce the risk of damaging your teeth and braces:

  • Cut down on sugary and starchy foods and beverages, which substantially contribute to plaque formation and tooth decay.
  • Floss between braces and under wires with the help of a floss threader. Your orthodontist also may recommend a small flexible toothbrush to clean between braces and wires.
  • Avoid sticky foods — such as chewing gum, chewy candies, caramel, and taffy. They can pull off brackets, bands, and wires.
  • Avoid hard or crunchy foods — such as ice, raw carrots, hard candies, popcorn, and nuts. They can break parts of your braces.
  • Brush carefully, preferably after every meal, with fluoride toothpaste and a soft-bristled brush. If you can’t brush your teeth after your meal, rinse your mouth out with water.
  • Rinse thoroughly to get all particles out of your braces. Check in the mirror to make sure your teeth are clean.
  • Use a fluoride rinse if recommended by your dentist or orthodontist.
  • Visit your dentist for checkups and cleaning as often as your dentist recommends, to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
  • Follow instructions — lack of compliance can extend the time needed for completion and increase the chance of complications.

In conclusion Braces offer a lot of benefits and may be a valuable investment for you. They can add to the value of any orthodontic treatment and give you more than just a beautiful smile. The person wearing the braces has an important role to play in the success of the treatment. Follow the orthodontist’s instructions precisely, especially during the retention period.
