Perfect Your Smile with Braces & Aligners
Not everyone is born with beautiful teeth. Crooked and misaligned teeth are known sources of self-consciousness, embarrassment and low self-esteem. At Thanjai Dental Centre, we offer a variety of orthodontic treatments to help you achieve a healthy and beautiful smile.
There’s a lot of treatment options to correct teeth that are crowded or crooked including retainers, aligners and braces (invisible, metal, ceramic or micro braces. Correcting a bad bite and improperly aligned teeth (malocclusion) is important not only for aesthetic reasons but also for proper oral health and function.
Bite problems usually become obvious between ages 6 and 12, and orthodontic treatments often start at ages 8 and 14. But this doesn’t mean that adults aren’t good candidates for braces. Healthy teeth can be adjusted at any age. In fact, many orthodontic cases can be corrected as easily for adults as for children.
List of orthodontic treatments for children, teens and adults
Metal Braces are the more traditional treatment option for correcting bites and crooked teeth. Strong, stainless steel brackets, tiny rubber bands called “ligatures” or “o-rings” and wires make up these braces. Metal brackets are less expensive than other bracket types. Patients are also offered a variety of choices when it comes to the colors of the ligatures.
Ceramic Braces are made of strong composite materials that are made to match the color of the teeth. They are less noticeable making them a popular choice among many patients. The brackets are made of ceramic or porcelain materials and the wires are made of metal alloys and deliver a constant, gentle force to move teeth.
