What You Need to Know About Invisible Braces?

What You Need to Know About Invisible Braces?

Few people are lucky enough to be born with a set of perfectly aligned teeth. This fact and the pursuit for beautiful smile led to the development of braces. Traditional braces did help realign teeth, but are uncomfortable and affect a person's appearance while they are in use. Ceramic braces are less noticeable as the brackets are clear or tooth coloured. Invisible braces are the latest in dental realignment therapy. They are virtually invisible and are not associated with any dietary restrictions unlike the earlier forms of braces.

Invisible braces are also known as aligners. Aligners are similar to mouth guards in appearance, but are custom built to fit tightly around the patient's teeth. These slip over the teeth and are designed to be removed and replaced every fortnight. Aligners may also be removed for eating, brushing and flossing. Each set of aligners vary slightly so as to move your teeth forcefully and correct your bite.

Treatment time of invisible braces depends on how much the teeth needs to be moved. In most cases, treatment takes between 10 months to 24 months. Aligners are also often used by adults who wore braces as children to correct slight displacement of teeth. In such cases, treatment could take as little as 10 weeks.

However, not everyone can get invisible braces. Aligners are custom built to fit tightly over teeth. This makes them unfit for use on children teeth as their teeth are constantly growing and developing. This is typically used for patients suffering from mild to moderately crowded teeth or those who have minor spacing issues between teeth. It can also be used as a follow up form of treatment for traditional braces.

Invisible braces are also slightly more expensive as compared to traditional braces as they are custom fitted.

The first step towards getting invisible braces is an X-ray, dental photographs and impression of the patient's teeth, gums and bite. These are then used to create a digital 3D representation of the patient's teeth in their current positions and their desired positions. The in-between stages are then created by moving the teeth .25 to .33 millimeters in each stage. The number of intermediate stages depend on the extent teeth need to be moved. Each stage is representative of an aligner to be worn for 2 weeks. If a tooth needs to be pulled away or rotated, a small, composite attachment may be bonded to the tooth.

The biggest advantage with invisible braces is that they can be worn without making a person self-conscious.

No medicine is going to help you. Please get your teeth surgically removed from an oral and maxillofacial surgeon.

I have my tooth decayed to the gum line. What should I do and how much it costs to replace total tooth.
The tooth has decayed completely. It will go for extraction if tooth structure is not left. Exrtraction will costs you starting from 500 to 700 replacing the lost tooth how is a big decision for you. There r many ways of doing it. Either the removable plate or the fixed bridge that takes support from the adjacent tooth or implant removable can cost you around 1500 bridge costing varies starting from 6000 to 10000 implant starts from 18000 to 25000 or 35000 depending on the brand.

A complete radiograph opg or ct scan will help to plan the treatment options. If you are medically fit then best is dental implant for missing teeth otherwise dental bridge or partial denture can also be opted.

- use a soft toothbrush -- and brush properly! brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day and after meals. Hard brushing can further damage the soft tissues of your mouth. - floss at least once a day and be sure to floss beyond the gum line to remove more plaque. - control bleeding by applying pressure to the area with a cold compress. - rinse with salt water or hydrogen peroxide to keep the area clean. Avoid mouthwashes that contain alcohol, which can dry out your mouth. - stay away from smoking and other tobacco products, which can aggravate bleeding gums. - eat a balanced diet and limit snacking between meals. Carbohydrates and sugars feed dental plaque. - try an oral irrigation device, commonly known as a" water pick, to clear debris from around the gum line. - have your dentures aligned as needed. - you may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. Advance procedures can be done with laser. You may consult me in person.

You might have a deep cavity. You might have to get an xray done. And you might need a root canal treatment.

Yes you can eat whatever you wish to. There are no restrictions as such to consumption of non vegetarian food items. Just take care to avoid putting pressure on the area of extraction.

Kind of toothbrush to be used by adults: we recommend a brush with soft bristles which helps in removing the plaque and debris thoroughly from the mouth.

Just because your tongue is dry, you feel every food spicy. Clean your tongue twice daily. Apply mucopain or dologel ointment 3-4 times daily especially before eating. Increase your intake of water. Eat more raw fruit and vegetables. Apply glycerin (available in any cosmetic store) 2-3 times daily. Avoid spicy food completely for at least 15 days.
