What are the types of braces?

Dental braces are devices used by the dentist to align and straighten patient’s teeth and help position them to fix the bite, while also aiming to improve dental health. Braces also fix gaps. Braces can be either cosmetic or structural. Often used in conjunction with other orthodontic appliances to help widen the palate or jaws and to otherwise assist in shaping the teeth and jaws.
Braces have a constant pressure which, over time, move teeth into the desired positions.

Types:

– Traditional Metal Braces

are the most common type of braces. These braces have a metal bracket with elastic holding the wire onto the metal brackets.

Traditional Braces

 

Self-ligating braces

They are made from the same materials as traditional braces. However, these braces do not require the use of elastics, which means, fewer appointments and less friction being placed on the tooth. Self-ligating braces come with traditional metal, ceramic, or clear brackets. They use a specialized clip in place of elastics to help the archwire guide teeth to place. The clip helps reduce the amount of pressure being placed on the tooth and requires fewer adjustments because there are no elastics to replace.

– Clear or ceramic braces

Serve as a cosmetic alternative to traditional metal braces, by blending into the natural color of the teeth. Typically, these brackets are made of ceramic function in a similar manner to traditional metal brackets. Clear elastic ties and white metal ties are available to be used with these clear braces to help keep the appliances less conspicuous.

Do you hide your smile because of the dark color of your gums?

We all wish to have pink and healthy gums but, some people will have certain black spots or patches, others may have complete dark gums.

Why do I have dark gums?

Darkly pigmented gums don’t mean that they are unhealthy, and are not an indication of a disease but, they can have a negative impact on the overall attractiveness of your smile, as well as your self-confidence.

Gum Depigmentation can be caused due to different reasons:

  • Excess deposits of melanin (genetic reason)
  • Long-term use of certain medication
  • Tobacco

Gum Depigmentation

also known as gum bleaching, it’s a cosmetic procedure done for aesthetic reasons to have pink, beautiful gums.

Procedure of Laser Gum Bleaching

During the treatment, the periodontist uses the laser to essentially bleach the gums. Removing the excess pigment from the area makes the gums lighter. Treatment of gingival hyperpigmentation by Waterlase radiation in a defocused mode is a safe and effective procedure.

This treatment will not have the complications of bleeding, pain and other postoperative discomforts. It’s considered to be a most reliable and satisfactory procedure.

As a result of the treatment, your smile will look more beautiful and healthy. It can accelerate the rate of your confidence and may require only one visit.
