7 Day Dental Braces for your Teeth
Braces are the oldest and the most common orthodontic appliances that improve your smile and contribute to overall oral health.
Traditional braces are made if metal brackets, which are held by wires. These brackets assert pressure on teeth so that they stay in correct position.
Since your orthodontist won’t be able to move your teeth all of a sudden, braces are often the right choice to gradually move your teeth to a desired position. After seeing the structure of your teeth, an orthodontist will be able to suggest the right tension, pressure, and position of braces and the amount of time it would take for the correctional procedure to fix your smile.
The different classes of bite types
Getting braces is an important step in your child’s life. However, the first step is to determine which type of bite your kid has. An orthodontist will examine your child and determine the problem with the bite and the type of braces suitable.
Bite types could be of three different types.
Normal occlusion, also known as class I, is when you can live without braces in most cases.
When a person has normal occlusion, the upper teeth go slightly over the lower teeth, allowing jaw to close perfectly and creating an ideal biting surface.
Class II Malocclusion
Class II Malocclusion is a case when a patient has upper teeth further forward than the bottom teeth. The bite position isn’t correct and the patient has difficulty taking a proper bite. Moreover, the upper teeth disturb patient’s smile.
Patients with class II malocclusion often have issues when eating food with the front teeth as upper teeth don’t touch the lower teeth. Instead, the lower teeth hit the inner upper jaw and cause oral problems such as gum bleeding, inflammation, and other incorrect biting problems.
Class III Malocclusion
The third type, class III malocclusion, is also known as negative overjet. It’s a case where patient has lower teeth farther forward than the upper teeth. It looks as if the patient has an overgrown lower jaw but in fact it’s usually just the teeth.
Having class III malocclusion requires immediate attention as it could cause problems when a patient is trying to eat food. It’s difficult for the patient to move the upper jaw to adjust the biting surface, which makes it nearly impossible to chew food properly.

After your orthodontic screening, your dentist might recommend different types of braces, depending on your unique case. Below are your options.
- Metal braces: These are traditional braces and they are the cheapest among other options. These braces are noticeable and the patients often have a problem with having so much metal in their mouth.
- Ceramic braces: Ceramic braces have lesser metal and they aren’t as uncomfortable as are traditional metal braces. However, they are relatively expensive and can easily stain.
- Lingual braces: Lingual braces are invisible from the outside as they are placed on the inside of the teeth. However, they are difficult to clean and they aren’t as effective as traditional braces in some severe cases.
- Invisalign: These braces are basically aligners. Your orthodontist will order custom made plastic aligners to move your teeth to correct position.
