Braces

Healthy Smile without Braces

Overview

Braces are one of the most common fixed appliances used in the straightening of teeth. They are available in both bright and clear colours to cater to people of different age groups.


Metal, Traditional Braces 

Traditional metal braces consist of stainless steel brackets that are fixed to the front surface of the teeth. A metal archwire runs through the brackets and is held in place by elastic bands, otherwise also known as ‘ligatures’. The elastic bands are available in a range of colours.  They help to exert pressure on the teeth and, overtime, move the teeth into the desired position.


Metal, Self-Ligating Braces 

Unlike traditional metal braces, metal self-ligating braces do not require the use of elastic bands. Self-ligating braces are ‘gated’ braces that are designed with a self-locking mechanism incorporated into the bracket. The ‘gates’ replace the elastic bands used in traditional metal braces to hold the archwire in place.

Advantages at a glance 

1. Shorter Treatment Period 
Without elastic bands, the reduction in friction will help the teeth to move faster. Hence, the treatment period is shorter for metal-ligating braces, as compared to traditional metal braces.

2. Fewer follow-up appointments
The ‘gates’ of self-ligating braces have a longer service life than elastic bands and do not need to be replaced regularly. As such, the number of follow-up appointments with your dentist will also be reduced.

3. Greater comfort 
The brackets used in self-ligating braces are generally smaller. This would minimize the possibility of abrasion against the cheek, and hence less ulcers.

4. Easier to care for
As there are no elastic bands used, less food debris gets trapped between the brackets, which makes maintenance easier. However, taking the time to brush and floss as you would with regular braces is still a necessary part of your daily routine.

Ceramic Braces 

Ceramic braces function in a similar way as metal braces do, except that they are more aesthetically pleasing. Instead of metal brackets, ceramic braces have transparent brackets, which makes it an ideal choice for people who prefer to keep their braces less noticeable.
