All-you-need-knows before jumping into the braces bandwagon! – Dr Tan Swee Ling

Braces seems to be rather popular now amongst the teens & young adults to have their ideal smile they did not have. Hence it is also a great way to maintain good oral health which comes along with aesthetic benefits.


Get Braces at Any Age

Wearing braces has no age limit so long as your teeth and gums are suitably strong. Those with poor gums and dental health may not find braces suitable for them. Invisible brace treatments are also an option to keep you from worrying about a change in appearance.

Going to the Right Orthodontist

Select the best orthodontist who makes you feel at ease and understands your concerns. Acquainting yourself with your orthodontist and asking him/her all the questions pertaining to pre and post treatment will give you a better idea of what to expect.

Cost May Vary

Braces surely don’t come cheap and the price of your braces may vary according to any treatments that may be involved. The price may also increase depending on the braces you choose. Moreover, if you opt for invisible braces, you will be paying more as the cost of manufacturing them is higher than metal braces.

Anticipate Some Pain

You’re likely to experience some pain for a couple of weeks because the brackets are going to rub against the inside of your mouth, which may leave some sores. Orthodontic wax will be given to prevent further discomfort. Simply rinsing your mouth with a salt water solution can give you some relief. If that does not do the trick, over-the-counter pain relief medicament are also available for immediate relief. It is important to be patient during this treatment because your end goal is a beautiful smile.

Straight Teeth Mean Good Oral Health

Most people undergo orthodontic treatment because it helps them to straighten their teeth. With well-aligned teeth, maintaining good oral hygiene will no longer be a chore. In a long run, your bank account will thank you, saving on treatments avoided to deal with cavities and gum diseases.

Retainers to be Worn After Braces

Retainers serve as an important part of orthodontic treatment. Thus, your treatment doesn’t stop after your braces come off. A set of retainers will be created from the mould of your well-aligned teeth. Your treatment plan will determine what type of retainer is suitable for you. Some orthodontists may recommend a bonded permanent retainer to ensure that your teeth are in place. Thus, before deciding on getting braces, consult your orthodontist about your options.

These are essentially all-you-need-knows before jumping into the braces bandwagon!
