Invisalign is generally chosen by adults who would like to improve their smile but are put off by the bulky appearance of conventional braces.
Also known as “train tracks”, traditional metal braces are made from stainless steel, and are also a popular choice amongst children and adolescents. These affordable and versatile braces help to align your teeth properly. They are applied to your teeth through wires and brackets.
These are discreetly hidden at the back of your teeth so no one can see them and there is no need to take them out. They are customized to the shape of a patient’s teeth with intelligent wires and brackets.
Made of strong composite material, these are tooth-colored braces that work in the same way as metal braces but are more discreet and less visible. Since they are virtually unnoticeable, they are ideal for patients who are aesthetically driven.
This orthodontic treatment makes use of the ‘self-ligating’ system that links the wires to brackets, allowing them to move naturally with the teeth without the need for elastics or metal ties. These braces can save you trips to your orthodontist for in-office tightening and are also slightly more discreet.
They are a form of preventive dentistry. Myobraces are applied on children at an early age to prevent problems like shifting of the teeth, bite problems, crooked teeth, etc., from impeding their dental health. They are removable braces made of soft medical grade silicone.

Procedure for getting dental braces
Firstly, the general dentist will examine your teeth and gums, both physically as well as using a dental X-ray. Upon evaluation, if the dentist believes that you may require braces for your teeth. Then, you are referred to an orthodontist for further treatment.
Here, the orthodontist will check your teeth and check for alignment issues. Next, they will communicate a suitable course of treatment to you, which will include information concerning the type of braces recommended to use for the dental procedure, its duration, and costs.
Fitting of the Braces
Next, the dentist will proceed to the fitting of the braces in your mouth. Initially, a cheek retractor is placed inside the mouth, to enhance the visibility of the teeth during the process.
Teeth cleaning & Cementing
Later, the teeth are polished, clean conditioned, air-dried, and primed, before brackets are placed on them. Before this step, non-adhesive dental cement is applied to the teeth to strengthen the bonding of the brackets and cured using laser light.
Placement of Arch Wires
Once the dental braces have been put in place, the cheek retractor is removed, and the dentist proceeds to install the archwires in their place.
Adjustment of Braces & Follow-up
The dental braces are now put in place. After this, the dentist will instruct the patient to have regular dental check-ups. This is done to check on the alignment progress made by these braces as well as adjust them or replace their elastic ties if needed.
