What are Orthodontic Braces for?

Braces can:

  • Straighten teeth that are out of place.
  • Helps to close spaces between teeth
  • Correct an improper alignment of teeth
  • Improve eating and speaking functions
  • Reduce the possibility of long-term wear and tear on your teeth

Braces for kids offer numerous benefits.

  • Dental braces are an orthodontic treatment that straightens your child’s teeth using brackets bonded to each tooth. By placing a constant, gentle force in a carefully controlled direction, braces slowly move teeth to the proper position.
  • Gone are the days when a metal brackets placed around each tooth.

Patients can now choose clear or metal brackets and, in some cases, the color of their orthodontic appliances. Wires are far less noticeable, and the latest materials are designed to move teeth faster with more comfort.

  • The job of braces goes beyond just smile correction. The patient doesn’t realize that it isn’t just correction of the smile it is the correction of the functioning of the jaw and that the smile is a byproduct of the entire process.
  • The primary goal is to ensure that the upper and lower teeth fit together well and provide a normal bite. Having teeth and jaws in good alignment is the main idea, and a secondary result is that great smile.

  At Kammath’s dental Care, we provide both Metal and Ceramic Braces.

Clear Aligners and Invisible Braces

Traditional metal braces compromises aesthetics throughout the treatment life span. Clear aligners are used to correct malpositioned teeth without using braces. They are more aesthetic and patient friendly.

Fixed Ortho Corrections

Fixed orthodontics treatment involves the correction of misaligned teeth which compromises aesthetics, chewing, speech and overall oral health. Fixed treatment involves the use of dental braces to slowly move the teeth. Treatment can take several months to few years. The time duration varies from person to person, depending on severity of the problem. After the treatment most patients will need to wear a retainer for the first 6 months for the successful outcome.
