Are you conscious of smiling because your teeth are out? Do you have gaps between your teeth?
Is this the reason you are reading this post? Metal Braces for teeth are the answer to your problems.
Child or adult, it works brilliantly in both. Braces can give a beautiful and healthy smile for life. Read on to clear all your questions.
The bracket and wire are metallic/ silver in these braces
Each of the braces gets a small rubber band around it. It holds the wire in the bracket slot. This wire causes the teeth to straighten out.
Braces (brackets) are the constant feature that will remain until the end of treatment. Wires and rubber bands change every month.
Self-ligating braces are braces that don’t need rubber bands. They have clips on the brackets which are metallic.

Follow-up visits- Braces tightening may cause your teeth to feel sore & sensitive to the touch. This can last up to 2-3 days.
Drink something cold, such as an iced drink or milkshake. It can help relieve the pressure on your teeth and ease the soreness. Post that there is no discomfort. Remember, pressure is only temporary.

Braces treatment changes the teeth and face forever. It is thus important that an orthodontist carries out the treatment. Dr Jayshree has an experience of 10 years.
You need to see your orthodontist once every 21-30 days. It depends on the type of tooth movement carried out.
We keep a watch on the dental hygiene of the patient as well at every appointment.

Stocking up on braces-friendly food before you even get your braces put on is most important. Your teeth will feel a little sensitive when you first get your braces put on and after adjustments also.
So opt for soft foods like rice, juices, idli, khichdi, soup, pudding, kheer, etc. Avoid hard or sticky foods that may cause soreness or pain.
Hard food also causes the loosening of wires or the breaking of brackets. Avoid foods like popcorn, caramel, nuts, carrots, panipuri, thin-crust pizzas, papad, ice cubes, sticky sweets, etc.
Most patients hold the idea that extractions of teeth are necessary for braces. With proper diagnosis and treatment planning, we can avoid extractions in many patients.

Achieving a natural profile of the face and a healthy smile is the primary aim.
Treatment duration varies depending on the severity of the problems. It can range from 6 months to 22 months. On average, comprehensive orthodontic treatment takes about 1 year.
