Braces Aren’t The End of The World! Putney Dental Care Will Make The Process As Painless As Possible

Braces - Putney Dental CareDo you want the perfect smile? Get your teeth lined up perfectly with braces! Call Putney Dental Care today on (02) 9808 2588. Braces are fixed dental appliances designed to remedy various teeth problems for people of all ages. Most dentists recommend wearing the metal brackets for up to eighteen months. However, the actual period varies with every patient and is determined by multiple factors including one’s hygiene, rate of growth, and tendency for breakages. Patients who are not able to come in for regular adjustments also prolong the time that braces stay in place.

Whether they are constructed from metal and ceramic materials or attached to your teeth’s lingual surfaces, they all function similarly. They have been proven to:

  • Bridge gaps between teeth
  • Contribute to shaping the jaw, mouth and the lower parts of the face
  • Correct underbites, overbites and other bite problems
  • Fix crooked and misaligned teeth
  • Help widen the circumference of the palate

Good Candidates for Metal Braces

When we think of braces, metal braces immediately come to mind. Indeed, they are the most recommended by dentists and favored by patients and their parents. This is largely because they are the most affordable option and get the job done. Made from surgical stainless steel, they fix teeth and bite problems through the use of braces and archwires. There is a wide range of coloured elastics to choose from, so you can update the look of your smile every month. At Putney Dental Care, we utilise high-grade materials sourced from reputable suppliers.

Go Subtle with Ceramic Braces

Should you go for ceramic or clear braces instead? Made of tooth-coloured materials, it minimises the distraction caused by the more traditional metal versions – otherwise known as “invisible braces”. Given this advantage, ceramic and clear are mainly requested alternatives used by older teenagers, young adults and even older patients for cosmetic reasons. As the material is mainly ceramic, they have the tendency to break with wear and tear, especially compared to metal braces.

Hide it All with Lingual Braces

With this option, cost is significantly more expensive than traditional metal and ceramic braces. Attached behind the front surfaces of the teeth, they are virtually invisible when you smile and talk. Placing and adjusting them requires technique, so trust only the most experienced dentists for this procedure. Patients that go for this option are people in the public eye—celebrities, athletes, musicians who play wind instruments and even politicians.
