What Are the Benefits of Orthodontic Braces Treatment?

Orthodontic braces treatment provides several benefits, such as:

  • Enhance Appearance - Braces help treat crooked or misaligned teeth, resulting in a more aesthetically pleasing smile.
  • Prevent Tooth Decay and Gum Disease – Having crooked or misaligned teeth can result in the accumulation of bacteria and food debris in the mouth. Hence, with straight teeth and an aligned bite, oral health issues will be reduced.
  • Improved Chewing – In some patients with misaligned bites, their ability to chew may be affected. Once the bite issue is treated, they will be able to regain proper chewing function again.
  • Improved Speech – In cases of speech impairments caused by orthodontic issues, fixing these issues can potentially allow for more space for the tongue to move, thereby reducing slurring and improving speech clarity.
  • Improve Oral Health - Orthodontic treatments help to straighten one’s teeth and align one’s bite properly, making them easier to clean, brush, and floss.
  • Reduce Risk of Dental Injuries - Having protruding teeth, for example, can increase your risk of sustaining dental injuries from accidents such as falls.

What Are the Different Types of Orthodontic Braces?

The following are some common types of dental braces in Singapore:

  • Traditional Metal Braces

    - These are the most common orthodontic braces, consisting of metal brackets that are bonded to the teeth and connected with metal wires. They are effective for various orthodontic needs and are typically the least expensive option.
  • Ceramic Braces

    - Ceramic braces use tooth-coloured or clear brackets to provide a more aesthetically pleasing option for straightening one’s teeth.
  • Self-Ligating Dental Braces

    - These braces utilise special brackets or clips instead of elastic band ligatures to hold the archwire. This reduces the amount of friction experienced.
  • Clear Aligners

    - These are custom-made, removable aligner trays designed to gradually adjust the position of the teeth.
