What are the different types of teeth straightening methods?

Teeth straightening provides people with a discreet way of achieving their dream smiles through minimum to non-invasive treatments. Not only does it help increase self-esteem, but straighter teeth are easier to clean for good oral hygiene and improved teeth longevity, improves comfort, makes it easier to chew your food and help prevent jaw strain and pain.
There are a few popular and effective treatments available today that have made a big difference to the lives of many.

Braces

They come in a variety of formats that are used to rectify and straighten tooth problems. The type of braces you choose will be determined by your oral requirements and personal preference. Treatment can take between 12 months to 2 ½ years with regular visits to the dental clinic to monitor and tighten the wires when necessary. The duration of the treatment also depends on the type of braces you opt for and how much adjustments your teeth require.

  • Traditional Braces: Currently these are the most commonly used type of braces and are also referred to as metal braces. Today they are available in a variety of colours and are made out of high grade stainless steel brackets, ceramic or titanium alloys. These brackets are fixed to your teeth and connected using stainless-steel wires. These wires are periodically bent or tightened to achieve your ideal bite, so your teeth gently move into the desired straighter position.
  • Clear braces: This is a favourite teeth straightening option with patients concerned about appearance because these braces as the name suggests are less noticeable than metal braces. They have cosmetic appeal because they are made from tooth coloured ceramic or clear or translucent brackets with white elastic modules instead of stainless-steal wire. These discreet braces work the same way as metal braces.
  • Aligners: These are considered as the modern alternative to braces as they help straighten your teeth with next to no disruptions to your everyday life. They are non-invasive and are easy to wear and you simply need to take them off before eating, drinking or cleaning your teeth. These custom-made removable mouthpieces fit over your teeth and add gentle pressure to gradually straighten your teeth over time. You will have several slightly varying versions throughout the duration of the treatment that will gradually shift your teeth to the desired location. Invisalign treatment falls under this category.

Normally there a two week stints between changing aligners as long as your teeth have moved into the correct positions. The entire process can take about 9-15 months but depends on each individual patient.

Composite Bonding

Also known as tooth bonding or dental bonding is treatment that allows patients to get straighter teeth by correcting minor damages or gaps. Composite resin is used to fix chips, fractures and gaps and on discoloured teeth if necessary. The composite resin can be reshaped to alter the tooth’s appearance and as the resin can be matched to your natural tooth colour it blends in seamlessly with the tooth. It is hardened into place using a UV light. This procedure can usually be completed with just one visit to the dentists and is a quick and effective way to fix minor cosmetic issues. It is a non-invasive procedure. With the proper care composite bonding can last for years.

Veneers

Dental veneers are wafer-thin custom shells made from natural tooth coloured materials that cover the front surface of a tooth and help to improve its appearance. Veneers are used to solve a multitude of dental problems from adjusting crooked or chipped teeth to re-shaping teeth to re-aligning them and treating discoloured teeth to name a few.
Available as Lumineers, porcelain or composite, veneers are a non-invasive treatment that require no preparation either. Veneers are a permanent fix and depending on the type of veneers you opt for they can last from between 8 to 20 years.
It is a two step process, during the first visit an impression of your teeth will be made and thereafter custom made veneers will be fashioned for you. During the second visit your specialist orthodontist will put your custom veneers in place.

Aftercare – How to take care of your teeth once the procedure is completed?

Aftercare is one the key elements to ensuring the success and longevity of your teeth straightening treatment. You should always maintain good oral health by keeping your teeth and mouth clean with a daily routine. Aim to brush or rinse your mouth after every meal. Use mouthwash and when travelling be sure to carry a travel toothbrush with you.

If you have braces avoid using whitening toothpaste as they will lighten the areas of your teeth not covered by the brackets. This will create a colour difference once the brackets are taken off which is best avoided.
With braces and aligners make sure they are kept clean and free from food particles. You should avoid hard, chewy or sticky food and instead opt for a softer diet of pastas and mashed potatoes for example. Best to avoid very sweet food as well so that you can avoid decalcification. Be sure to take your aligners out before eating or drinking and to keep them clean with a soft brush and cold water.
Make routine dental care visits so that any dental issues can be sorted out in time. The healthier your teeth are the better the impact on your straightening treatment.
