What you need to know about orthodontics

Growing up, our parents have placed great emphasis on cleanliness. They would always made a fuss when you came back from school or play with muddy shoes or with stained cloths. They would brush and wash our shoes, cloths and would give us a good bath and scrub to make us squeaky clean. But they know we willalways come back a mess after play as it is something that cannot be avoided. Specially as children, we only wanted to have fun and never bothered or even took a second to think about the mess or stains that would come as a result of play, for example, jumping in a mud puddle is always fun, no matter if you are wearing your Sundays best or your school whites.

Parents would also have placed as much or more emphasis on the health and cleanliness of our teeth and gums. But with time and our busy life styles most of the time we are not able to maintain the right dental care routine. Sometimes we tend to forget to brush at night, no time to floss in the mornings and even brushing is done within seconds in a rush.

Even if the perfect care was taken as adults we may come to realize that our teeth are not perfect. It may not be as straight as you would like them to be or you would come to realize that they are not perfectly aligned and causes a bite issue. But all is not lost. This is where orthodontics Dubai come into play. Best dentist Dubai are able to guide the patients on corrective steps that can be taken through orthodontics to perfect the existing teeth and not require procedures like dental implants Dubai to replace the natural teeth.

They will also take you through the various options of dental braces available for all. Commonly used is the metal braces which are the traditional ones used in which is less expensive. Many do not prefer these traditional braces as they are look unsightly and can affect an individual’s confidence in the public. This has led to the creation and successful implementation of less noticeable braces.

Another option is known as lingual braces where it still uses brackets, however these brackets are placed at the back of the teeth, not the front. The latest is the invisible braces called invisalign aligners. These clear aligners are not only invisible they can also be removed to eat and brush conveniently.
