Dental braces are devices used in dentistry that align and straighten teeth and help position them with regard to a person's bite, while also aiming to improve dental health. Braces also fix gaps. They are often used to correct underbites, as well as malocclusions, overbites, open bites, deep bites, cross bites, crooked teeth, and various other flaws of the teeth and jaw. Braces can be either cosmetic or structural. Dental braces are 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.


The major reason for getting Braces on is to improve the facial appearance, what people do not know is that there are any other implications which require orthodontic treatment like open bite, jaw structure, crossbite etc.


This is a stage where adult teeth or permanent teeth replace primary teeth which aid in appearance, speech, and digestion. During this phase, people can face many issues which can be corrected by Braces. These issues include:

  • Crowding / Haphazardly placed teeth can lead to poor oral hygiene and can also be the reason for Dental Caries (Cavities)

  • Improper Bite that affects chewing efficiency

  • Crooked teeth which can be a major reason for Periodontal problems such as Bleeding Gums, Halitosis (Bad Breath) and Tooth Mobility (Premature loss of teeth)

  • If the teeth are irregular, then it can cause calculus deposits leading to yellow teeth

  • Forwardly placed / Proclined Teeth which leads to more convex profile and posteriorly displaced chin

  • Open Bite

  • The spacing between teeth which can cause speech problems



This is a stage when one has a combination of both primary and permanent teeth in the mouth is called Mixed Dentition. Wearing Braces in this stage cure the following problems:

  • Jaw Growth disorders at this stage can be corrected in a non-invasive manner which may later require surgical correction

  • Treatment of crooked teeth. This needs to be treated during an early stage else it will affect Child’s psychology



Every individual is different. Orthodontic treatment can be started as young as 13 years old. There is no upper limit in terms of age for Braces.
If you have good oral health and firm teeth, you can get braces at any age.
There is various kind of Orthodontic treatment available for all ages.



Metal Conventional Braces:

These are the traditional and most common type of braces. The metal braces used today are much more comfortable and smaller in size. These require elastics which come in a variety of colors to tie the wire to the braces. The wires use your body heat to move teeth more quickly and less painfully. There is no age limit attached to these, as patients of all ages can choose to straighten their teeth using metal braces.

Metal Self Ligating Braces

These are metal Brackets with a shutter or lock system and do not require the use of elastic to tie the wire. In comparison to traditional metal braces, metal self-ligating braces are more comfortable and smaller in size. These are helpful in achieving arch expansion and minimize the need for extraction.

Ceramic Conventional Braces

Ceramic braces are the ones with clear brackets. They use tooth color and blends more naturally with your teeth. The shape and size are the same as metal braces. These are less visible on the teeth and as a result, are preferred by older teenagers and adults who might have aesthetic concerns. Sometimes, even the wires used are of tooth color which makes them less noticeable. Being less prominent, they require more care and protection compared to metal braces as they are larger and more brittle. They require extra protection, hence, are used more in upper teeth than lower.

Lingual Braces

Lingual Braces are heavy metal braces which are placed behind the teeth. These metallic braces can be made even of silver or gold. The individual Bracket is customized using CAD-CAM / 3D Designing. The treatment is highly aesthetic and less visible. This, however, can cause mild speech difficulties during the course of the treatment.

Clear Aligners

Clear Aligners are medical grade plastic trays that do not require any braces or wire. They are totally invisible hence; the aesthetic concerns are duly met and make them very appealing with adults who need orthodontic treatment. Though placed inside they do not have any food restrictions associated. People believe that being placed on the inside, they might face speech difficulties; which is a myth. On the other hand, transparent braces are highly comfortable and hygienic. Clear Aligners also hide existing gaps.

Advantages Of Clear Aligners

Clear aligners are a very popular orthodontic treatment option that offers several benefits over traditional braces. These transparent, removable aligners gradually straighten teeth and correct bite issues, providing patients with numerous advantages:

Aesthetic Appeal: Clear aligners are virtually invisible, making them a discreet choice for those concerned about the appearance of traditional braces. This allows individuals to maintain their self-confidence during treatment.

Removability: Unlike fixed braces, clear aligners or invisible aligners are removable. This feature facilitates easier oral hygiene practices, as patients can brush and floss without obstructions, reducing the risk of dental issues like cavities and gum disease.

Comfort: Clear aligners are custom-made to fit snugly over the teeth, minimizing discomfort and irritation typically associated with metal brackets and wires. They cause less friction and fewer or no sore spots.

Dietary Freedom: With clear aligners or transparent aligners, there are no food restrictions since they can be removed during meals. Patients can enjoy their favourite foods without worrying about damaging their orthodontic appliances.

Speech Improvement: Invisible aligners do not affect speech as much as traditional braces, allowing for more natural communication during treatment.

Predictable Results: Advanced technology enables orthodontists to plan and visualize the entire treatment process. Patients have a clearer understanding of the expected outcome, and treatment progress is more predictable.

Convenience: Clear aligners require fewer in-office appointments compared to braces, saving time and minimizing disruptions to daily routines.

Reduced Emergency Visits: There are fewer emergencies with clear aligners since there are no broken brackets or wires. This reduces the need for unplanned visits to the orthodontist.

Clear Aligners offer a discreet, comfortable and convenient way to achieve a straighter smile while allowing for normal eating and oral hygiene habits. These benefits make them an appealing choice for many orthodontic patients.
