Braces Treatment : Why, When and How

Braces Treatment : Why, When and How


Braces also known as orthodontic treatment are used to correct the following most common problems:

  • Misaligned teeth due to:

1. Overcrowding
2. Spaces between teeth
3. Mis-shaped teeth

This could result in an unappealing smile and frequent deposition between teeth.

  • Misaligned Jaw which could lead to clicking and popping sound while opening and closing of jaw, pain in jaw joints and neck region.
  • Misaligned bite due to:

1. Overbite
2. Underbite

This could lead to overclosure of mouth or under closure of mouth or mouth not being completely closed.

  • Periodontal (gum) problems
  • Dental hygiene issues due to poor orthodontic conditions

  • Straight teeth are easier to brush and keep clean thus reducing tooth decay, gum disease and gingivitis. In summary, well aligned and straight teeth enable you to improve oral health.
  • Aesthetic, appealing smile and enhanced facial appearance thereby leading to improved self-confidence.
  • A correct bite allows your teeth and mouth to chew food the way they’re supposed to and thereby not causing any pains in the jaw joints.
  • Improper teeth alignment puts extra wear and pressure on adjacent teeth, causing them to wear off faster.
  • Correct teeth alignment may also help to correct speech issues if any.


Dental braces are most commonly associated with teenagers, simply because this is when most people first notice their crooked teeth.

There is NO AGE LIMIT for this kind of corrective treatment. One can use braces to correct misaligned teeth at any age, just so long the teeth and gums are reasonably strong. Dental braces are not suitable for patients with weakened gums or poor dental health.

With advancements in technology, we are now correcting mis-aligned teeth using invisible braces. This is a popular mode of treatment for people in the age group from 25-60 given the social stigma associated with having braces on.


The following types of orthodontic treatments are used:

1. Metal Braces: These are conventional metal brackets.
2. Ceramic Braces: These are ceramic tooth colored brackets that are not visible to the eye at a distance.

3. Self-Ligating Braces: This is a different system of braces that are used reduce the treatment duration
and can be used with both metal and ceramic braces.
4. Lingual Braces: These braces are placed on the backside of the tooth so that they are not visible.
5. Invisible Aligners: They are clear aligners worn on the tooth that are the latest and virtually invisible
way to improve your smile.
