Braces

Singapore Dentist

Braces are devices which gently correct irregularities in the arrangement of your teeth. They are also called orthodontic appliances.

Braces can do wonders for your self-confidence and self-esteem. By "straightening" your teeth, it helps to improve your smile and makes you feel good about yourself and your appearance. There will also be an overall improvement in your dental health as it will be easier to brush teeth that are well-aligned rather than those which are "crooked" and crowded together.

There are two types, namely, fixed braces and removable braces. The most common type of fixed braces are made of metal. There are also tooth-coloured (ceramic or plastic) braces.

Removable braces are braces which are taken out of the mouth when you brush your teeth. They are cheaper but may not be suitable for all cases.

Wearing braces might cause you some discomfort at the begining. However, your lips, cheeks and tongue will soon get used to them and you might even miss them when they are finally removed!

The cost of braces will depend on a variety of factors one of which is the difficulty of your case. Also, the type of braces you will be wearing can influence the cost of treatment. Thus, fees vary from $3000 to $7000.
