Orthodontics or Orthodontia is a specialized field of dentistry. An orthodontist needs special training after having completed the course of dentistry. This field primarily deals with the correct positioning of misaligned teeth and jaws. The treatment is done using alignment devices such as braces. There are four kinds of braces. Signature Smiles provides braces treatment in Mumbai.
Metal braces are regular braces. This orthodontic option is effective for treating overcrowding of teeth. This treatment is less expensive than the other options and is quite economical.
The advantage of this method is that metal braces give the orthodontist the chance to position the teeth by small increments. However, there is a disadvantage of this metal brace. These braces are fitted over the teeth and it is visible. It gives a metal mouth appearance which is very much visible.
Lingual braces are metal braces. The difference between metal braces and lingual braces is that they are fitted to the inner surface of the teeth. Hence, they are not visible from outside. Lingual braces are more expensive than metal braces. Metal braces treatment in Mumbai is done at Signature Smiles.
But there are certain disadvantages of lingual braces. It is difficult to clean as it is fixed on the inner side of the teeth. Regular adjustments take more time than metal braces.
Ceramic braces are esthetic braces which are almost of the same size as metal braces, but their brackets are tooth color or clear. They blend with the teeth. The advantage of the ceramic brace over metal brace is that they are less visible. However, ceramic braces are more expensive than metal braces.
Invisible, clear or transparent braces are custom- made braces which are tightly fitted. They are fitted to the inner surface of the teeth and hence, are invisible. Invisible or clear braces are removable. This works as an advantage as the braces can be removed while eating, flossing or brushing the teeth. It provides more comfort than the braces that are not removable like metal braces.
These braces are not recommended for everyone so the advice of your orthodontist is important in this regard. Clear braces are made from a clear plastic material or from acrylic materials.
However, for people those who have a large number of teeth that are seriously misaligned, invisible braces are not recommended. Signature Smiles provides all options of orthodontics treatment in Mumbai.
