We all fancy for a picture perfect smile for the photographs of our wedding to be treasured forever. It’s the day when you have all eyes glued on you and you cannot afford to lose the perfection of your smile for any reason, be it because of the irregularities of teeth or their poor aligning. To get yourself saved from any such trouble, an orthodontist is a person to look for who can transform your smile miraculously. WedAbout gets you all the information you need to know regarding the orthodontic treatment with the help of their expert Dr. Latika Dhawan who is an MDS orthodontist with specialisation in lingual and invisalign orthodontic treatment.
“Orthodontic treatment is a sophisticated process of straightening, moving or aligning of teeth to a desired position” quotes our expert Dr. Latika. She adds “it can be done by means of various appliances such as braces, liners, and bands etc. which work on the push and pull mechanism. The posterior teeth are used as anchor.”
One can go for any of the different types of braces or retainers. “There is a wide range available for the patients to choose from. Kids generally go for the colourful funky looking braces whereas an adult can opt for invisible or lingual braces which can be lined from the inner side of the mouth.”
The treatment may can be get done in a range amounting from 40,000 INR to 4, 00,000 INR. The cost varies with the varying cases and the treatment type they require. But don’t we all know that this multiple-benefit-loaded treatment is all worth it!
Orthodontic treatment works on your misaligned bite, poor spacing, etc. giving you an impeccable look for your wedding. “Easy maintenance of oral hygiene, longevity and aesthetic are the three major benefits of getting orthodontic treatment” says our expert.
What can be better than getting the superlative of your smile without any side effect! Yes as our expert mentions “the treatment doesn’t cause any such side effect especially if you go for aligners. Though what remains salient is getting the treatment done by the experienced and professional hands.” So folks, it is greatly advisable to do a little research about your orthodontist before making your visit.
The treatment demands good care after the treatment. As per our expert “The teeth, after treatment, take at least 6-8 month to set. Hence it is strictly advisable to use the retainers regularly. Also the patients are encouraged to take good care of their oral hygiene for which mouth washes are quite helpful. Sticky and gluey food should be avoided till the time your teeth don’t set. One must refrain from biting their food by consuming mashed/ minced or crushed food.”
Orthodontic treatment is not a one day job. It needs as much as time as patience. Hence you must have time of almost a year prior to your big day for the treatment and if not then invisible liners can always be used as an alternative.
