Adult / Metal braces are the most common orthodontic treatment or adults and children. They are fabricated from stainless steel and are widely used for correcting and straightening teeth of mild to complex cases. At Dental Square, the metal braces we use, are of high quality and sterilised ones. The contour of these brackets are manufactured in a way to adapt to the patients lips and oral cavity.
The term ‘lingual’ refers to the attachment of braces on the inner surface of the tooth, within the mouth. Yes, they are inconspicuous! The orthodontic force is applied on the back side of the teeth rather than the front, straightening the teeth without intruding on your appearance. This even allows to enjoy yourself, to see your new smile blossom as the treatment takes its course.
It is fabricated by the very latest computed aided design (CAD) technology, that completely customises to fit your teeth, to produce near perfect results. As this system is tailor – made to you, you will achieve your treatment goal more efficiently, and in limited time period than conventional braces system.
At Dental Square, clear braces, are the most common choice of treatment among teens and adult patients. They are made of ceramic alloys and are much more aesthetically pleasing as these translucent brackets allows the natural colour of your teeth to see through. Ceramic brackets can be implied for clinical cases , where metal brackets are appropriate for treatment. These provide the full control and treatment speed of metal braces, with the added benefit of being less visible.
Benefits of clear brackets:
• Unlike metal brackets, they are generally stain resistant. Throughout the course of treatment, they are easy to keep clean and resistant to discoloration.
• As the colour of ceramic brackets blends with the teeth, it makes them less noticeable and an excellent alternative to traditional brackets.
If you prefer a less traditional look, during your orthodontic treatment, you may be able to choose colourful elastics for the brackets, or other modifications.
Pick colours for the braces and paint your smile!.
