Braces: Are They Really That Intimidating?

Dental braces are one of the most widely used methods to improve the health of your teeth, as well as gaining a confident smile. However, getting and maintaining braces can be a nerve-wracking experience for some people, especially when you are not at all familiar with this process.

Dental Braces Some might think getting braces are complicated, but we are here to reassure you by giving you a heads-up of what really goes on during dental braces procedure. There are six stages you need to go through:

Initial Consultation and Examination

In the first appointment, you will need to be referred to an orthodontist to examine your overall dental health (this include manual examination, X-ray images examination, consultation about the positioning of the teeth and the jaw using the advanced technology)

Case Diagnosis

After getting a referral, the orthodontist will now examine further the bone structure of the jaw and determine the best plan of action for you. A mold of your teeth will also be made in order to better design your treatment.

Setting a treatment regimen

A personally designed treatment regimen will be set up. Keep in mind that each person will have a different experience based on their age, health conditions etc. You will be advised based on your dental health and personal needs.

Calculus Removal

This stage helps clean the surface of your teeth and get rid of any calculus that might harm your teeth. When wearing braces, dental sanitisation is going to be more difficult. Other than that, in case your teeth have other damages such as decays or cracks etc. they will need to be addressed beforehand.
