Know more about different kinds of braces London
Most people use braces London at their teenage years. There are different kinds of braces for different ages. Braces are basically made of 3 pieces which are the O-ring brackets, a metal band and the wire. The arch wire run across the teeth within every bracket. The O-ring helps in bonding the bracket and wire. Each tooth gets a bracket that is connected to the O-ring and other teeth with the help of a metal band. The entire setup helps teeth to sit in a place for which the brace is made for. Braces apply pressure to teeth in order to set them on the desired place. It may take few months to few years before braces London can align the whole set of teeth.
There are majorly 4 kinds of braces that most of the emergency dentists in London prescribe. They are traditional metal braces, lingual braces, invisalign braces and ceramic braces. The kind of braces given to you will depend on two factors. One- how much money you can pay for the braces and two- which one the emergency dentist London will prescribe for your own good.
Most prescribed braces are the traditional metal braces because they are cost-effective and every one can afford them. They may not be stylish but these are the most effective braces as they have very less issues. However, it might be difficult to clean your teeth properly after putting on these braces. Metals braces are preferred by most of the teenagers.
Next category is the invisalign braces. These braces are mainly used by adults because they remain unnoticed by other people and they are also visually appealing. They can be easily removed while cleaning teeth or eating food. They are more comfortable as compared to other types of braces. However, there are only a few dental problems for which invisalign braces can be used. Hence, they are more expensive than other braces.
The next category is the lingual braces. Lingual braces are fitted at the back of your teeth. Installing these lingual braces is more difficult than other braces since they must be carefully installed and maintained on the back of the teeth. As a result, using them can be a bit trickier. These braces have their own pros and cons. One of the pros is that no one can notice that you have put on braces while one of the cons is that sometimes, your tongue might become uncomfortable because of these braces.
Ceramic braces can be considered as an upgraded version of metal braces. These braces have the same color as that of your teeth. Hence, it becomes impossible for anyone to notice that you have put on braces on your teeth. They do not have the strength of metal braces and need extra care to maintain. They are more costly than the metal braces.
Although you now know different kinds of braces, you should not decide what kind of braces you should wear. Let your emergency dentist London decide the right kind of braces you need depending on the problem you have.
