John Ray once said – “If beauty is power..smile is its sword” that is the power of a smile. A smile appears pleasing if the teeth are well aligned. Poorly aligned teeth in the form of crowding, spacing, or irregular arrangement of teeth not only causes esthetic problems but also causes poor function that is inability to chew properly. Poorly aligned teeth are difficult to clean and hence are more susceptible to decay and infection.
If you or anyone in the family has teeth which are not aligned properly, they must go for Braces/Orthodontic Correction
Our in-house Orthodontist Dr Ravneet Kaur with her experience of hundreds of cases can suggest you from the variety of orthodontic treatments available.
- Metal Braces: These are made of metal and hence are visible on the teeth, however they are most affordable
- Ceramic Braces: These are made of ceramic and hence are white in colour, They are more esthetic and hence expensive than Metal Braces
- Self- Locking Braces: They have a self locking mechanism built into them hence do not require elastic ties to keep the wire in place. This makes the movement of teeth frictionless and the treatment time shorter. They are available in both metal and ceramic and are expensive than conventional braces
- Aligners: These are transparent plates that are most esthetic and do not require sticking braces on the teeth. These are most expensive but invisible hence most esthetic
All these options are capable of producing the desired results, however each has its own advantages and indications. Dr Ravneet Kaur after analysis of your case will suggest you the particular treatment that is good for you.
