What is a brace?
Contrary to the common thinking, it is likely to adjust your teeth at any age. Nowadays, more and more adults are taking this step! Today, they are the source of more than 47% of orthodontic treatments. To meet this growing demand, new types of dental braces have been evolved in recent years. In the collective imagination, braces necessarily have brackets, but this is false: other types exist today.
In which cases to wear them in Turkey and Istanbul?
Braces in Turkey are inevitable in case of abnormalities, dental misalignment, when there is not enough space between the teeth, when teeth overlap, when there is a dento-maxillary disharmony or dental diastema. Braces guarantee the alignment of the teeth and their right function. As an example, in the case of malocclusion (when the opposite teeth do not meet well, because the upper and lower jaws are not correlated) or overbite, symptoms can occur like cracking of the jaws. This can lead to the aging of the teeth. In this case, the brace is suggested for medical reasons so that the deficiency does not increase.
At what age can children wear them?
Today, orthodontic treatments start earlier. Children are followed from an early age. It is occasionally possible to start at around the age of 4-5 if the child has difficulty chewing or if it is difficult to breathe. The intervention of the orthodontist is carried out in collaboration with that of the ENT. The treatment of children with cleft palates sometimes starts even beforehand.
In general, we believe that it is at the age of 7- 8 that a child should consult an orthodontist. During the first appointment, either is it too early and the patient will be reviewed later for a second visit, or the child needs an interceptive orthodontic treatment lasting approximately 6 months. These interceptive treatments aim to cure a growth gap in the jaws or a problem of abnormal tooth development (a tooth that evolves in the wrong place may damage other teeth or hinder their evolution).
What are the kinds of dental braces?
Braces are a useful method for both children and adults to straighten their teeth. There are several diverse categories of dental braces.
- Metal Braces: They are the most frequent traditional braces. They are the most visible type of dental braces. They are made of brackets which are small steel elements attached to the external face of the tooth and connected with a metal bar.
- Ceramic Braces: They are used in the same way as metal braces. However, they are less apparent.
- Lingual Braces: Lingual dental braces are identical to traditional braces. The only difference is that it is put on the inside of the teeth. Lingual braces cannot be seen that is why they are appreciated for this aesthetic benefit. The only disadvantage is the discomfort felt at the beginning of the treatment.
Are there any disadvantages to wear them?
Many patients wonder about the pain and discomfort that could appear after wearing braces, and especially if these discomforts can endure throughout treatment. The patient may actually perceive pain and discomfort when he/she chews and speaks after the braces are placed. The tongue and cheek muscles will get accustomed to the new device during the first weeks or months after setting a brace.
