Frequently asked questions

Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that deals with the diagnosis, prevention, and correction of improperly positioned teeth and jaws. This includes using dental braces to align and straighten teeth.

There are several types of dental braces, including traditional metal braces, ceramic (esthetic) braces, lingual braces (positioned on the inside of the teeth), and clear aligners like Invisalign.

Metal braces are more visible but are usually more affordable and can treat a wider range of orthodontic issues. Ceramic braces are less visible due to the material resembling the natural color of teeth, but can be more expensive and slightly more fragile.

Clear aligners, such as Invisalign, are removable trays made of transparent plastic that fit over the teeth. They gradually straighten the teeth by changing the trays at regular intervals.

The duration of orthodontic treatment varies depending on the complexity of the case and the type of dental braces used. On average, treatment can last between 1 and 3 years.

Lingual braces are as effective as traditional braces, but are less visible as they are attached on the inside of the teeth. They can be a good option for adults or teenagers looking for a more discreet solution.

With metal or ceramic braces, it is recommended to avoid very hard or sticky foods that can damage the appliance. With clear aligners, they are removed during meals, so there are no dietary restrictions.

It's normal to feel mild discomfort or pressure when the dental braces are adjusted, but this should subside in a few days.

Yes, after removing dental braces, most patients need to wear a retainer to maintain the teeth in their new position.

Orthodontic treatment with clear aligners is generally 2-3 times faster than traditional ones.
