Braces are essentially metal structures that are affixed to your teeth using a specially made adhesive. They are then interconnected with a wire that is used to regulate the spacing of your teeth. It is adjusted at regular intervals at your dentist’s till your teeth are back in proper alignment.

Preparing for Braces Treatment

The first step in the process is to thoroughly clean the teeth. This is to make sure that the braces stick to the teeth properly. They dentist will also closely examine your dental condition and treat any other problems that you might have before installing braces. The objective here is to fix the alignment of your teeth and if one or two have cavities or are facing tooth decay, then that problem will be treated first. If your gums are showing signs of disease, then it needs to be treated before fixing you up with braces.

Essentially there are different types of braces that your dental care professional can recommend.

  • Metal braces are the most common type and also the most effective. They are not, however, the most aesthetic solution.
  • Lingual Braces are bonded to back of the teeth and are not viable for severe cases. Since they are not fixed in the front, it does not look awkward.
  • Invisalign is a new cosmetic solution but does not work well with severe cases. It can also get stained unless taken care of properly.

What to expect during the treatment?

When newly applied, some discomfort is normal. The first week can also give you some mouth sores and the odd tinge of pain. If the pain becomes too intense or is continuous for extended periods of time, you should immediately consult with your dental care professional. The sensitivity is expected to go away after a few days.

Taking care of your braces is essential during treatment. There are special toothbrushes that are specially designed to work around the braces. You are advised to brush twice a day for best results. You should take care to brush softly lest the wires get dislodged. Flossing with super-floss is a better option than going for traditional flossing. Maintain your diet properly and conduct a good oral hygienic routine to help you keep treatment at optimum levels.
