Your diet modification is a must while you are getting braces treatment. You are not supposed to eat hard, sticky and crunchy food stuffs. The banned food stuffs include toffees, chocolates, pizza, burgers, pastries, chips, non veg, nuts, gajak, nuts, cakes, hard fruits & sticky food items. All the precautions for braces treatment differs from person to person. While some people eat all of these and still maintain their brackets intact while others find totally unacceptable reasons like i was kicked by my smaller brother or was hit by a football on my face. Physical injury to the braces can worsen the situation as is evident from the look of braces.
With the latest technology coming into braces, we have a lot of options to choose from in braces. We can opt for traditional metal braces, self ligating braces, ceramic braces with metal wire or ceramic braces with fiber wire. The even latest and premium version of braces is aligners wherein no braces is required at all.
No teeth removal of premolars is not required in all cases. It is only required in cases where the space is not enough to accommodate an aligned arch of teeth. For cases like spacing in teeth or mild crowding no removal is required.
Braces are more or less a painless treatment modality. You can have slight discomfort or pain during the first 2-3 days of bracket placement or wire placement which can be easily managed by a very basic painkiller like paracetamol.
Usually braces treatment can range from 6 months to 2 years of duration. On an average it takes around one hand a half years to complete the case. Some severe cases may require longer than the usual expected time. Your regular visits and proper maintenance of your braces also impact your treatment duration. If you are irregular and break your brackets often the treatment duration may increase.
Braces can be given to anyone until the age of 60 if your gums and bone surrounding them is healthy. Yes adults above 18 to 40 years of age form a huge part of our patient base who are getting treated for braces. You can have the option of invisible braces i.e. ceramic braces or no braces i.e. aligners if you want.

Invisalign invisible braces uses a series of translucent plastic aligners that gently nudge your teeth into better alignment. These custom aligners fit tightly over your teeth and will have to be worn for most of the day and night. Every couple of weeks, you will get a new set of aligners and your teeth will continue to be repositioned over the weeks and months. The process to get your teeth into the most desirable position usually takes less time than traditional braces
When you are wearing the aligners, most people won’t even be able to see them. Since they can be removed, there are no restrictions on eating and drinking, which gives Invisalign a big advantage over traditional orthodontics. If you have a special event, such as an event or a wedding, you can remove the aligners for a few hours while you attend and then put them back in afterward to continue straightening your teeth.
There are reasons other than esthetics alone that make it a good idea to straighten your teeth. If your teeth are crowded or overlapped, this can actually raise your risk of developing decay and gum disease.
It’s simply more difficult to brush and floss teeth that are not straight and even. If you are not cleaning your teeth properly, plaque can more easily build up below the gum line. Even gaps between your teeth can be problematic if there is a tendency for food to get trapped between your teeth.
