Braces: Your Comprehensive Guide to Straightening Your Smile

Welcome to our complete guide to braces! Whether you’re considering braces for yourself or a loved one, this resource aims to answer all your questions and provide you with the information you need to make informed decisions about your orthodontic treatment journey.

What are braces?

Braces are orthodontic devices designed to straighten and align teeth, correct bite issues, and improve overall dental health. They consist of brackets bonded to the teeth and connected by archwires, which apply gentle pressure to move the teeth into their desired positions over time.

Do I need braces?

The need for braces depends on various factors, including the alignment of your teeth, bite issues, and overall dental health. Your dentist or orthodontist can assess your teeth and recommend braces if they determine that orthodontic treatment would benefit you.

Do braces work in adults?

Yes, braces can be effective for adults as well as adolescents. While it may take longer to achieve desired results in adults due to the fully developed jawbone, modern orthodontic techniques and advancements have made adult orthodontic treatment more common and successful.

Can I put braces just on top or bottom?

In some cases, orthodontic treatment may involve braces on either just the top or bottom teeth. However, comprehensive treatment usually involves braces on both the upper and lower teeth to achieve optimal alignment and bite correction.

What are Invisalign treatments?

Invisalign®  is a popular alternative to traditional braces that uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth. These aligners are custom-made to fit snugly over your teeth and are virtually invisible, making them a discreet option for orthodontic treatment.

How long do braces take?

The duration of orthodontic treatment with braces varies depending on the severity of the dental issues being addressed and the type of braces used. On average, treatment with traditional braces typically lasts between 18 to 36 months, while Invisalign treatment may take 12 to 18 months or longer.

Metal brackets vs Ceramic braces

Do braces hurt?

Discomfort or soreness is common after braces are initially placed and after adjustments during treatment. This discomfort typically subsides within a few days as your mouth adjusts to the braces. Over-the-counter pain relievers and orthodontic wax can help alleviate any discomfort.

What is required before getting a braces consultation?

Before your braces consultation, it’s important to gather relevant information, including your dental history, any previous orthodontic treatment, and any concerns or goals you have regarding your smile. During the consultation, your orthodontist will conduct a thorough examination and discuss your treatment options and expectations.

How do I care for my braces?

Proper care and maintenance of your braces are essential for achieving optimal results and avoiding complications. This includes brushing and flossing regularly, avoiding hard and sticky foods that can damage braces, attending regular orthodontic appointments for adjustments, and following any additional instructions provided by your orthodontist.

What happens after braces are removed?

After your braces are removed, you will likely need to wear a retainer to maintain the alignment of your teeth while the surrounding tissues stabilize. Your orthodontist will provide specific instructions on wearing your retainer and scheduling follow-up appointments to monitor your progress.

How much do braces Tirana cost?

Depending on the type of braces  and the time reqired to complete the treatment, the cost might vary. The only way to find out is to get a consultation with one of our orthodontist specialists where you will be explained in details about the cost and duration of the treatment.
