Types of Dental Braces

Types of Dental Braces

We often talk about looks and we focus on eyes, skin, hair, nose and all of that. But, when it comes to aesthetics, your teeth are the underdogs. What we are trying to point at is the fact that even though good teeth are essential for your personality, yet, not many people focus on it.


However, things are changing, and several people are opting for braces to correct their smiles.

Dental braces are of the following types:

Traditional Dental Braces: These type of dental braces are made from high quality stainless steel. These braces are separately attached to each tooth using cement. The teeth are also linked using an arch-wire. Once the braces are set, the orthodontists connect the dental braces using the arch-wires to the braces using the elastic, which is known as ligatures.

Traditional Dental Braces

Ceramic Dental Braces : These are similar to the traditional dental braces. But, the only difference is that these braces are made from a clear and transparent ceramic material, which is makes a better appearance around the teeth. These braces are also very popular among adults, as they do not prefer the braces made up of stainless steel.

Damon Braces: These type of dental braces are currently gaining popularity. These are self-ligating and are gentler, wherein the mechanism that is used in the braces is devised to cause movements that do not cause friction. Clean the damon dental braces is less expensive in comparison to other braces.

Clear and Immovable Aligners : Invisalign is a type of an aligner, which can be used by people who have dental problems. These type of aligners are an alternate for dental braces. These are transparent aligners that resemble the mouth guards. Invisalign as the name suggests is invisible. Therefore, one cannot understand about who is wearing an invisalign aligner. These are customised and they are changed from time to time to bring a symmetric alignment in the teeth and also for the positioning of the jaws.

Palatal Expanders: Patients who have the issue of over crowded teeth were previously recommended to opt for a tooth extraction. But, there is something called palatal expanders. These are less intrusive and painless. A palatal expander is worn on the upper molars and these insert pressure on the molars, which result in positioning the teeth in a symmetric way and it provides the teeth with an even spacing.

The prices of the all dental braces vary depending on the orthodontist and the experience of the dentist working on the teeth.

The prices for all the categories of dental braces are as follows:

1. Traditional dental braces which are made up of metal cost between Rs. 15,000 to Rs. 20,000.
