Types of braces: which to choose
There are two types braces – it is metal and ceramic. And here’s the difference between them. Metal is the most common option, it is easy to clean, durable, and even cheaper. And ceramic ones have identical properties, but differ only in appearance, because they are practically invisible on the teeth.
Metal price braces at QRD Dental Clinic from 15 thousand hryvnia, and for ceramics – from 23 thousand. If you do not know which is better, then contact us for help. Orthodontists will be happy to see you as soon as possible.
Up to what age can braces be installed
The bracket system has no restrictions as such! Everyone is accustomed to seeing teenagers with “iron darts” in their mouths, but this does not mean at all that they cannot be worn by those over 30. The main thing is to make up your mind, and everything else is the work of professionals.
But start installing braces it is possible only from 12-13 years old, when all the teeth have already changed, although there are exceptions. In general, teeth straightening using this method will take about 1.5 to 2 years.
How to take care of your braces
Everything is quite simple, but you will have to forget about an ordinary toothbrush for a while. Because you need a special V-shaped one. She brushes her teeth safely and does not harm braces. The next step is to replace the paste with one that is intended for sensitive teeth. In addition, you need to buy a protective wax, an irrigator to clean the gaps between teeth and interdental brushes. It is with them that you will have to clean the oral cavity after eating.
