The best technique for crooked teeth correction is with the
use of Dental Braces.
Braces are appliances that help in aligning teeth in symmetry. They can
be of different types based on the material used.
Most braces treatment require a time duration of 15-18 months.
These are the traditionally used braces that we all have seen. Metal
Braces may appear unaesthetic but are slightly faster in their mode of
action compared to ceramic braces.
These ceramic braces match the colour of your teeth but require more
care compared to metal braces as they can be slightly brittle.
These are preferred by older adolescents and women due to esthetic
reasons. They are very less prominent compared to metal braces.
These braces are also termed automatic braces as they do not required
the placement of elastic bands. The brackets have a self locking
mechanism which makes the entire system smaller, lightweight and
easier to maintain hygiene.
The ceramic version of the Self Ligating braces is made to match the
colour of your teeth. It has the same benefits as the metal Self Ligating
braces except for the colour.
The most recent trend is the “Invisible Braces” also called
“Transparent/Clear Braces” or “Aligners”
This system involves a thin transparent tray made of a resin based
material which is usually custom made based on the shape of the
teeth. These snugly fit onto the teeth and align them in their correct
position. They are available as various systems like
The best part about Invisible Braces is that you can have a look at what
your teeth will look like post treatment even before we start the braces.
The first step is a digital scanning of your teeth using the Itero Scanner-
Where a 3D rendering of your teeth is done digitally and a software
creates the simulation of your treatment results‼ This scan is then
used to create your clear aligner trays.
