Why do we use conventional orthodontic braces and how do these braces work ?

Orthodontic treatment aims to correct various dental misalignments or teeth positioning anomalies, such as malocclusions, overlaps or misalignments. These issues must be treated before the occurrence of other complications namely those affecting the masticatory apparatus. It is also worth mentioning that misaligned teeth can cause severe aesthetic damage and become a permanent discomfort for the patient.

Braces work by applying gentle and consistent pressure to the teeth over a period of time. They consist of metalic brackets or ceramic brackets that are bonded to the teeth and connected by archwires. The archwires are adjusted periodically to gradually shift the teeth into their desired positions. Additionally, elastic bands or other components may be used to apply additional force to correct specific bite issues. The process of braces treatment is personalized to each patient’s needs, and regular adjustments are required to ensure progress and achieve the desired results.

What are the means used in classic orthodontics ?

Many types of braces are used in the treatment of misaligned teeth:

metalic orthodontic teeth braces
Metal braces

Treatment is based on the use of metal brackets that are attached to the outer surface of the teeth with a metal wire. They are tightened regularly by the orthodontist to gradually put the teeth back in place and correct their alignment. Their effectiveness is remarkable, but adults may feel uncomfortable wearing them because they are visible.

transparent ceramic teeth braces
Ceramic braces

They are similar in function to metal braces, but they are more discreet due to their color, which blends in with the teeth. Patients can therefore tolerate them more.

lingual teeth braces, invisible braces
Lingual braces

These are conventional orthodontic braces made of metal brackets that are attached behind the teeth. This placement makes the appliance invisible, but uncomfortable because of its permanent contact with the tongue.
