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.

Is it possible to reduce the size of front teeth? Any kind of treatment for large teeth to maintain and make them little?

Dear Lybrate User, You should visit your dentist for more help on this issue. Yes it's possible to reduce the size of your front teeth and bring them in harmonious alignment with the teeth in the arch but the treatment options may vary from simple grinding (a little bit) to putting crowns on the teeth. We cannot simply over-grind the teeth as that leads to severe tooth sensitivity. Instead, your dentist would decide as at what option works the best in your case by examining your teeth, taking impressions and analysing the smile profile. Good Luck!

The reason for bleeding is inflamed gums. please understand that pastes and medicines are only adjunctives to the main line of treatment to help in healing, they can not heal your inflamed gums by them self. Treatment recommended for you is cleaning of teeth and gums. please consult your doc and get the severity of your problem checked as, if your gums are inflamed along with bone loss, then you may need a more extensive treatment. Meanwhile start with warm saline rinses they would help for sure.

Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need filling or root canal treatment or deep cleaning along with surgical procedures. You may consult me too.

Saving a fallen tooth can be useful. Try to keep it in place while you seek immediate medical attention. If that is not the case, try wrapping the tooth in a piece of plastic or soaking it into milk and call for immediate dental service.

You need to eat.or else you will become weak....have liquids at least if possible... Mouth pain may be because of weakness if no particular tooth is hurting.... For temporary relief do rinsing with warm salt water thrice daily

Hello lybrate user, gum bleeding is because of infection in gums. Infected gums are sensitive to touch also so when your brush is in contact with infected gums it bleeds. If you want to get rid off it you have to go for professional cleaning of your gums. Your tooth pain is because of cavity in your teeth for that you have to undergo root canal treatment.

No uprooting the natural teeth is not a good option, primary aim should be to save the natural teeth, an intra oral x ray will give an idea regarding the treatment required. Teeth can be saved with a relative good prognosis.
