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.

Treating tooth decay or cavities at Smile Infinity® is a different case!

Tooth decay, or dental caries, are yellow or dark spots found on your tooth that can cause you pain and difficulty while eating, comes from food with carbohydrates like soda, cake, candy, cereal and all sugary that stays on your teeth turns bacteria in your mouth into acids. The bacteria, food debris, acid, and saliva combine to form plaque which holds on to the teeth. The acids in plaque dissolve the enamel, creating holes and signs of the cavities!

Tooth Decay

When you see signs of a cavity, directly contact your dentist to fix it because if a cavity is not treated it will destroy a good part of the tooth and if a lot of the tooth is gone, only a dental crown can restore it!

If the decay’s bacteria reach the pulp chamber, it will become irritated and infected because this is where the blood vessels and the nerve is located and this case will lead to an abscess, which can be very painful and only a root canal can fix it, probably followed by a crown for a final restoration! And if you do not care about treating your teeth… It will cause you a much bigger problem where the cavity damages too much of your tooth, and unfortunately, it will need to be extracted. tooth definition.jpg
Well, Root canal treatment at Smile infinity clinics is a virtually pain-free way to eliminate the often agonizing pain of an infected or highly inflamed tooth and may help to prevent worsening pain or infection. It is a highly skilled area of dentistry and generally using the laser to complete an EndoLase procedure which provides very conservative treatment of the anatomy of the inside of the tooth, that is why Laser Endo and Microscopic Endo are options at our clinics for conservative treatment and best results.

Microscope

 

A dental microscope is at its core an optical instrument, which allows the dentist to see enhanced details in order to work as precisely as possible. Therefore, there should be no compromise concerning the optical components. Only superior optical quality with excellent clarity offers high resolution, large depth of field, and maximum light transmission. This is indispensable for a successful root canal treatment as the root canals are in most cases not rectilinear and have cavities and tiny ramifications, which are difficult to detect without high magnification and depth of field. Accurate color representation is also required for easy differentiation of anatomical details.

Today, videos and images play an ever-increasing role in the dental practice for many reasons.
Firstly, during a procedure, live on-screen video can help the assistant to support the dental surgeon.
Secondly, a video is a useful training tool either during or post-treatment, additionally, it can be shared with the wider dental community online or at seminars.
Thirdly, video can support patient relationships and trust, as the dentist can show the patient what he sees which take them through the steps of a procedure and thus include them in consultation and treatment.
Finally, video and images can be included in a patient’s file for more thorough documentation and to facilitate easy review. Ease of transfer to a practice documentation system and the ability to save different file formats are therefore further key considerations.
