SMILE braces

Braces can correct crooked teeth or misaligned teeth (either from underbite or an overbite). Thanks to new dental technology offered by teeth braces Singapore clinics, these are a lot less painful and more effective. Some of them are practically invisible!

What to expect at your first appointment

You can see a dentist or an orthodontist, who specializes in teeth irregularities. At your first checkup he will ask questions about your health, examine your teeth, and then take plaster impressions and X rays. This will enable him to tailor the best plan to correct your teeth alignment.  For example, you may just need a retainer instead of braces, or in severe cases, you may need surgery. Most of the time, however, teeth braces Singapore technology can fix the misalignment.

Teeth Braces Singapore options

Traditional metal braces are made of metal brackets and wires. Compared to the ones before, the newer ones are smaller and use special heat-activated materials that help correct misalignment much faster.  If you are concerned by price, this is considered the most affordable or cheap braces in Singapore.

Lingual braces are a special type of metal braces where the brackets and wires are on the inside the teeth.

Ceramic braces are made of brackets that match the color of the teeth, so they are less noticeable.  You will need to care for them better, as they can stain easily.

Lingual braces are the same as traditional metal braces, except that the brackets and wires are placed on the inside of teeth. While completely hidden, they can be uncomfortable and are not effective for some cases.

Invisalign are customized clear plastic aligners that are replaced every 2 weeks. They are practically invisible, and you can eat anything you want (metal braces can make it tricky to eat food like corn on the cob). However, they do take longer to correct misalignment, and may not be recommended for more severe cases.
