Straighten your Teeth with Braces

Our dentists recommend starting orthodontic treatment at the age of 12 or 13 years old at the onset of puberty. There are mainly two types of braces in Singapore, namely fixed braces and removable braces. Fixed braces will be attached to the teeth throughout the entire treatment process while removable braces can be taken out when you want to brush your teeth or have your meals.

Braces corrects a wide variety of teeth straightening problems like Spacing, Crossbite, Open Bite, Overjet, Reverse Bite and Misplaced tooth. To know more about how our braces in Singapore can help treat your teeth conditions, please book an appointment with our clinic for a consultation.

CONVENTIONAL BRACES

Metal braces (1st generation) is the most common and popular form of treatment and consist of metal brackets stuck onto the front of teeth, rubber bands and an arch wire.

Pros:

  • Cheap
  • Choice of modules (coloured rubber bands) available

Cons:

  • Most noticeable type of braces
  • Less hygienic as it is difficult to clean in-between brackets
  • Sharp ends of brackets often cause mouth ulcers
  • Longer treatment time

SELF LIGATING BRACES

Self-ligating braces (2nd generation) use a ‘sliding door’ technique in which metal brackets are stuck onto the front of teeth, allowing the arch wire to slide back and forth without the need for rubber bands to hold it in place.

Pros:

  • More hygienic than metal braces as less food gets trapped between brackets
  • Requires fewer adjustments and visits to the dentists compared to conventional braces
  • Shorter treatment time than 1st generation metal braces
  • No staining problems

Cons:

  • More expensive than 1st generation metal braces
  • Technique sensitive

Pros:

  • Less noticeable and not visible from outside

Cons:

  • Difficult to clean
  • More expensive
  • May cause slight difficulties in speaking
  • May hurt the tongue and be uncomfortable at first
  • Regular adjustments take a longer time and are more difficult as compared to traditional braces

CLEAR BRACES

Clear braces consist of ceramic or polycarbonate (plastic) brackets stuck onto the front of teeth, clear rubber bands and a Teflon coated or fibreglass arch wire. They can be either conventional or self-ligating.

  • More expensive than metal braces

INVISALIGN

Invisalign, also known as invisible braces, is made of smooth plastic aligners that are virtually invisible, removable and fit comfortably over the teeth. Each aligner is specially customized and will gradually shift your teeth overtime.

  • Almost invisible and allow you to undergo treatment discreetly
  • Comfortable as there is no irritation to the gums or surround tissues
  • Removable and has minimal interferences on your daily activities and diet

Assessing Your Suitablility

On your first consultation, your dentist will conduct a thorough orthodontic examination on you. Following that, he/she will also take your x-ray, a scan of your teeth and full face & profile photographs in order to create a treatment plan best suited for you.

Your dentist is interested in more than just your teeth. Your facial profile, the bone structure of your head, how you chew, breathe and speak is just some of the many things that your dentist studies very carefully. The goal is to find the best harmony between all of these factors in order to achieve a better appearance, better teeth and jaw function as well as ensuring that your treatment lasts.

Your Customised Treatment Plan

During your second consultation, your dentist will explain to you the relationship between soft tissue profile, jawbone and teeth as well as how these affect your appearance. Based on x-rays analyzed by our in-house computer software, your dentist will then advise you on the various treatment options available as well as the costs involved for the dental services so that you can make an informed decision.
