The technology and aesthetics of dental braces in Dubai has developed a lot, especially in the last 20 years. You now have the ability to choose the material your braces are made of, colors, removable parts, and more.
Let’s explore some options that are available for those who need braces. Your orthodontic center may not offer all of these options. Consult your orthodontist to determine which option is best for you.
In addition to availability, price can also be a factor considering the specific types of braces and orthodontic care you receive, as well as your orthodontist’s preferences, your personal preferences, and the scope of your treatment.
Ceramic braces are ideal for those who already have very white teeth. They match the color of your teeth and are not as noticeable as metal braces. They are very strong and do not stain. These less visible types of braces are ideal for those who have a personal preference and don’t want their braces to be extremely visible to everyone. These offer a more subtle look.
These types of braces are best for people without serious orthodontic problems where the problems and severity are minimal. They are made of strong plastic material, are custom molded to your teeth and jawbone, and are removable. Their advantage is that there is no bulky metal (less discomfort), they are almost imperceptible and do not stain. However, the treatment time can take as long as traditional braces and they are very expensive. Although no metal is involved, it is not a painless treatment.
Lingual braces are similar to traditional metal brackets, but are placed behind the teeth so they are hidden. Not all orthodontists offer this type of braces because of the special training required to treat patients with lingual braces. The disadvantage of this type of braces is that they can be more expensive than traditional braces and treatment can take longer.
Today, nickel allergy sufferers have the opportunity to get gold-plated devices. Colored ligatures (the O-shaped elastic that goes around the bracket and across the archwire) are also available. The more adventurous or the youngest can opt for the WildSmiles supports. These are a great option for children’s braces. These look a lot like traditional metal braces but they come in a variety of shapes such as; B. as flower, star, heart, football and baseball. They are a fun alternative that allows for more customization of your braces.
