Dental braces or braces/cases are devices used in orthodontics ( a branch of dentistry that deals with diagnosis, prevention, and correction of malpositioned teeth and jaws) that realign and straighten with an improvement in overall dental health. They’re usually used to treat underbites, overbites, open bites, deep, and crossbites. There are several types of dental braces like Traditional Metal Wired, Gold Plated Stainless Steel, Lingual, Titanium, Invisible(clear) Aligners.
Clear aligners or as they’re popularly known invisible aligners are transparent orthodontic devices that are used to adjust teeth.
The first offshoot of clear aligners appeared In 1945 as H.D. Kesling’s ‘tooth positioner’, made out of rubber it looked similar to a sports mouth guard. In the 1960s one-piece plastic splints were used to stabilize teeth, in the 80s Mr. Yoshii of Japan introduced elastic devices made from flexible silicone. In the 1990s, new aligner systems were introduced, ‘Invisalign’ was one of these released in the US in 1997. This was a revolutionary movement for dentistry around the world. For the first time, a computer-aided model for the desired results could be produced from a single impression of the teeth. These models were then used to manufacture a large series of aligners for a patient without the need for new impressions.
How it Works:
The dentist will first take a mold of the patient’s teeth, this mold is then used to create a digital tooth scan. The computer software will then suggest the alignment measurements and stages between the current and desired teeth positions. This leads to the creation of aligners for each stage. Each aligner can be worn up to 20 hours a day for 2 weeks. Over time the teeth will slowly move into the desired position at different stages in different time frames.
Instead of being worn on the front of your teeth, these are placed in the back of your teeth, so they’re not visible.
100% customizable to allow to follow the contour of your teeth.
The customization of the ibraces means that they require lesser adjustment than tradition braces and lesser visits to the dentist
It serves as a feel-good factor for people who have issues with the aesthetics of traditional braces.
