Dental Braces

Fixed orthodontic appliances are the most commonly used appliances for orthodontic treatment in use today. As the name suggests they are bonded to the teeth and are not removable by the patients. Dental braces align and straighten teeth and help position them with regard to a person's bite, while also aiming to improve dental health.

This procedure is suitable for children or young adults, and it has best results around the time when children lose most of their baby teeth, and a majority of their adult (permanent) teeth have grown. Age 8 to 14 is usually a perfect time, even though patients can undergo this procedure even as late as 25 years old. 

Braces also fix gaps. They are often used to correct underbites, as well as malocclusions, overbites, open bites, deep bites, cross bites, crooked teeth, and various other flaws of the teeth and jaw. Braces can be either cosmetic or structural. 

Dental braces are often used in conjunction with other orthodontic appliances to help widen the palate or jaws and to otherwise assist in shaping the teeth and jaws.

How much does it cost?

Price depends on the treatment plan chosen for your needs. Contact us for more.

How long will my procedure last?

The procedure lasts 20-24 visits, spread over a period of 1 hour.

Do I have to repeat the procedure?

No, you don’t have to repeat the procedure but you need to take constant care so the teeth will not go back to their original place. 

Is there a next prevention phase?

If the patient doesn’t undergo the treatment on time, they may experience difficulty in achieving the desired results quickly. This means young adults tend to keep their dental braces a bit longer.
