Fixed Braces

Explainer Video

Fixed braces, also known as traditional braces, are a common orthodontic treatment used to correct misaligned teeth and bite issues. They consist of brackets bonded to the teeth and wires that exert gentle pressure to gradually move the teeth into proper alignment. Despite the emergence of newer orthodontic options, fixed braces remain popular due to their effectiveness in treating a wide range of orthodontic problems. Next, we’ll explore the procedures involved, benefits, risks, and why Dentiva Clinic is the ideal choice for fixed braces treatment.

Fixed Braces Procedures

1. Consultation and Examination

The orthodontist conducts a thorough examination of the teeth and jaws to assess the severity of misalignment and develop a customized treatment plan.

2. Bracket Placement

Small brackets made of metal or ceramic are bonded to the front surface of each tooth using dental adhesive. These brackets serve as anchors for the wires that will guide the movement of the teeth.

3. Wire Placement

An archwire is threaded through the brackets and secured in place with elastic bands or ligatures. The orthodontist adjusts the tension of the wire to apply gentle pressure on the teeth, gradually shifting them into proper alignment.

4. Adjustments

Patients visit the orthodontist periodically for adjustments to the wires and brackets. These adjustments help maintain progress and ensure that the teeth continue to move in the desired direction.

5. Maintenance

Patients are instructed on how to properly care for their braces, including oral hygiene practices and dietary restrictions to prevent damage to the braces.

6. Removal

Once the desired alignment is achieved, the braces are carefully removed, and any remaining adhesive is polished off the teeth. Patients may then be fitted with retainers to maintain their newly aligned smile.

Risks

  • Discomfort: Patients may experience discomfort or soreness in the teeth and gums, particularly after adjustments. This discomfort typically subsides within a few days.
  • Oral Hygiene Challenges: Proper oral hygiene is essential when wearing fixed braces to prevent plaque buildup, tooth decay, and gum disease. Specialized tools may be required to clean around brackets and wires.
  • Dietary Restrictions: Certain foods and habits, such as chewing gum or eating sticky or hard foods, should be avoided to prevent damage to the braces.
  • Risk of Breakage: Brackets or wires may break or become loose, especially if patients do not follow dietary restrictions or engage in activities that put excessive force on the braces.
  • Length of Treatment: Treatment with fixed braces may take longer than with some alternative orthodontic options, particularly in complex cases.
