Types of Braces

Braces are one of the orthodontic treatment methods. Braces treatment is preferred for irregularities in tooth and jaw structure; treatment of palatal stenosis; aesthetic needs; elimination of dental crowding; treatment of separated teeth. The application is done through brackets and dental elastics. To improve the teeth, force is applied to the tooth structure through wires.

Braces application is a long-term treatment method. If applied at an early age, permanent results are obtained. Careful attention should be paid to oral hygiene to get effective results during the healing process. With the developing technology, braces have a more aesthetic appearance. It is even possible to choose braces that are personalized with colors.

Braces treatment has its own alternatives with different qualities. The most appropriate treatment method among the types of braces is decided by the specialist dentist within the framework of the patient’s needs and wishes. The types of braces are as follows:

Metal Braces (Traditional Braces)

Metal braces are a type of treatment that provides fast and permanent results in braces treatment. It is also known as traditional braces. It is one of the most preferred methods in braces treatment due to its durable structure. It is applied for the improvement of the gaps between the teeth, the alignment of the teeth and the disorders in the palate structure.

Treatment with the budget-friendly metal braces lasts between 6 months and 2 years. There are also colored and transparent alternatives to the dental elastics, which are changed regularly at each check-up. Colored elastics are frequently used today, especially by young people.

Ceramic Braces (Porcelain Bracket)

Porcelain braces are made of ceramic suitable for natural tooth color. Its natural structure provides an aesthetic appearance in the appearance of the teeth. Regular dental care is required to keep the porcelain structure natural. The duration of ceramic braces treatment may take longer than metal braces.

Lingual Braces (Invisible Braces)

Lingual braces are also known as invisible braces. It is one of the treatment methods preferred by people who are uncomfortable with the appearance of braces. Lingual is applied to the back surfaces (inner side) of the teeth, so its appearance from the outside is not easily noticed. The adaptation process takes longer than other braces. The treatment period continues for an average of 2 years. The effect is similar to that of metal braces, but cleaning can be more difficult because they are located on the back surfaces of the teeth. In addition, the cost of lingual braces is higher than other treatments.

Invisalign Treatment

Invisaling treatment is preferred to correct low-level dental disorders. It must remain on the teeth for 22 hours every day. It should also be worn while sleeping at night. Through the aligner, the teeth are gradually moved to the desired shape. The possibility of attachment and removal provides an easy and practical use.
