Braces: Understanding Your Options

BDS
Dentist,
Braces: Understanding Your Options

A generation ago, we would not see so many adolescents with braces as we do currently. Orthodontics, the branch of dentistry involved in the use of braces to align and move teeth to form that perfect arch, has seen rapid advancements in the past few decades and continues to grow at a rapid pace.
The fundamental principle is that the teeth is held in place by surrounding elastic tissues, and minor constant forces can be applied to align them better. Small metal brackets are applied on the teeth and a wire is passed through them so that there is a constant force on the teeth. The amount and direction of force is managed by the doctor. The younger the age, the more elastic the tissue is, the easier it is to move teeth.

There are two main things to understand in terms of your options, relation of age with orthodontic treatment and the choices of braces.

Firstly, correlation with age. Over the years, more people in their 20s and early 30s are choosing to have braces. Though the teeth and more importantly the surrounding periodontium become less elastic with age, the amount of force exerted is increased and therefore tooth movement is enabled. Also, in older patients, tooth removal may be required more frequently to make space for proper alignment.

Secondly, the choices of the braces:

  1. In the earlier days, bands were placed around the teeth and a wire was then connecting all these bands to enable tooth movement. Gradually, this made way to small brackets being placed on the front surface of the teeth, and a wire running through it and elastic bands connecting the bracket and the wire. This is the most effective way of moving teeth, though not esthetic. To make it look different, the ligatures could be colored.
  2. For people who are constantly in the public eye, the metal braces were a deterrent and so lingual braces became popular. The brackets are applied on the inner surface of the teeth and are not seen easily. The amount of force here varies from the earlier one, and not all conditions can be treated by this method.
  3. The next development was the development of ceramic braces, which are also applied to the front surface of the teeth and can be used in most cases. These are more expensive than the metallic braces.
  4. Removable aligners is another option, which are trays which need to be worn for close to 18 hours a day to induce tooth movement. This is esthetic and no metal shows during talking or smiling.

So, if you want to improve your smile, visit your dentist and find out how!

What is the correct brushing method ?

MDS - Periodontics
Dentist,
The correct method of brushing is placing the brush at an angle of 45 degree and with light sweeping motion thus covering 3 teeth at a time. If unable to understand visit a nearby dentist

I am 19 years old and have a little cavity in 2 of my back teeth upside is there any other way of treating them besides filling and is there any way to whiten teeth.

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
Cause of discoloration ? Smoking, coffee, tea, drugs, aging, staining food (wine, blueberry, etc) genetics. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with whitening (bleaching) procedures and / or artificial enamel filling and / or capping. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Use Snowdent tooth paste for whitening until then. Apply SNOWDENT paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min .Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results. DENTAL TIPS: - Visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months.

HOME BLEACH FOR THE TEETH Here is home remedy for brighter teeth--- mix several teaspoons of baking soda with enough fresh lemon juice (or water) to make a paste. Wipe your teeth and any extra saliva off of them with a paper towel. Put a good amount of paste onto your toothbrush and apply. Leave the paste on for 1 minute, then rinse, so as to avoid the acid effecting enamel. If you are using just water you can leave it on for up to 3 minutes. For faster result you can go for teeth bleaching from dentist.

Hi, teeth have a protective layer called enamel with age the enamel wears off and become thin which causes to become teeth sensitive to cold and hot. You need to get a professional check up done to know the exact cause and solution of your problem. Without checking you clinically we can't suggest anything. Regards

To lessen the degree of pain or soreness in the mouth during the orthodontic treatment, you can gargle with 8 ounces of lukewarm water with one teaspoonful of salt dissolved in it. Swish it around your mouth and then spit it out. It will dull the pain and provide relief.

Yes. By pacing an implant in the centre of thr missing space we can make a bridge of 5 teeth by taking support from implant and natural teeth from both sides of the implant. I.

I think you should change your brushing method and bleaching treatment can improve your shade. If your teeth are yellow from the beginning then you may require cosmetic correction.

Generalised paining of teeth is due to gums. This might be the intial stages of gums. Once go to the dentist and get cleaning the teeth and ask the dentist for massaging paste for gums.

Hi Ms. lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. Well, the exact cause of recurrent oral ulcer (s) though unknown, you can take the following steps in general to lessen the incidences of the same - (a) Maintain oral hygiene on a regular basis - keep your mouth clean and healthy. (b) You can reduce the risk of damage to your mouth by using good quality & soft toothbrushes and also by leveling off rough edges of teeth/ dentures, if any. Preferably, I would recommend use of 'Neem' toothpaste for brushing. (c) Eat a healthy and balanced diet rich in vitamins A, B, C and E. Include fresh fruit and green leafy vegetables to reduce the risks of oral cancer. (d) Take Green tea, up to 2 times daily. Stay well hydrated. (e) Avoid high calorie, greasy, fatty, oily foods including fast foods. Restrict consumption of sweets, carbonated drinks etc all. (f) Apart from diet, make sure you streamline your lifestyle too with daily exercises, de-stressing and relaxation. If you are habitually constipated, the above-mentioned shall help. (g) You can take a tablet of probiotics (like 'Sporlac DS' or 'Becelac forte' capsules) daily before food, subject to your dentist's concurrence. As an alternative, you may take once curd and buttermilk spiced up with a little bit of turmeric on a daily basis. (h) If the ulcer pains, you can apply a pain relieving gel (as advised by your dentist), locally. Do gargle / rinse your mouth with Betadine gargle (not to be swallowed) 2 to 3 times daily, after food. Alternately, you can also use warm saline water for gargling. (i) Should the ulcer pain, you can apply (topically) a layer of fresh and pasteurized honey (good quality) on the ulcer (s). You may also slowly apply ice cubes for sometime to alleviate pain. (j) Last but not the least, regularly visit your dentist. If you see the ulcer not healing up for more than 3 weeks, do visit your dentist promptly, and get the same clinically examined. Hope this helps. Do take care and all the very best.
