Orthodontics is the specialized field of dentistry where treatment is focused on the placement, position, and movement of teeth. Dental braces are a type of orthodontic treatment that helps to align crooked, protruding, or uneven teeth, transforming your teeth into a healthy and beautiful smile. Depending on the method of braces and the status of the deviation, there are different costs.
1. Fixed braces
Fixed braces usually consist of square brackets that are cemented to each tooth. They also have a wire running through them to join the brackets together. Below are different types of fixed braces available at Elite Dental.
This type of brace is made of high-grade stainless steel brackets and a flexible metal archwire that guides the teeth to the correct position. They are the strongest form of braces and are prone to less damage. They are also the least expensive form of braces available. However, metal braces are not aesthetically pleasing. They are often very noticeable. They may cause irritation and can stuck on lips and cheeks causing bleeding.
This is a type of brace also known as clear braces. They are similar to metal braces, but they use transparent or tooth-colored brackets instead of stainless steel brackets. Tooth-colored or clear brackets are attached to the teeth with the help of similarly colored or transparent wires and rubber bands. One huge advantage of ceramic braces is that they are more comfortable than metal braces. However, one drawback of ceramic braces is that they are easily chipped and stained so patients need to be careful while wearing this type of braces.
They are one of the most popular types of braces in recent years. They are quite similar to metal braces and ceramic braces. They consist of a bracket and wire system. However, they do not use rubber bands. Instead, they make use of a sliding bracket mechanism with “doors” or “clips” that attach to the wire. This sliding mechanism ensures minimum friction and is less painful than metal or ceramic braces. Self-ligating braces can reduce the treatment time compared to metal or ceramic braces.
|Metal braces||50,000,000 – 65,000,000 VND|
|Ceramic braces||65,000,000 – 80,000,000 VND|
2. Invisalign (clear aligners)
Invisalign is made of transparent, clear plastic. They have become more popular in recent years. Invisalign offers undetectable treatment that can be just as effective as traditional braces.
