Dental Braces for Improving Smile...!!!

Orthodontics can help to correct the irregularities of the teeth, bite, and jaws. The dental braces are the most basic a type of removable orthodontist appliances. It is made from different materials like metal, ceramic or plastic.

Types of Braces :
Metal braces

Metal braces are visible and wired and have metal brackets ad wires which are held in place by a rubber band. Self ligating braces are a type of metal brace which don't use a rubber band but rather have the wire hold the bracket in place. They are more comfortable than traditional braces and have a faster treatment time.

Ceramic braces

Ceramic braces are built like metal braces but use ceramic instead of metal. The main reason for the choice is appearance as ceramic has the color of teeth. The brackets don't stain though the wires do but they're changed every month so that's not a problem.

Ceramic braces don't last as long as metal but are more expensive.

Lingual braces

Lingual braces are not visible as they're attached behind the teeth. This invisibility comes at a higher price than traditional braces but since aesthetics is held in high regard, they're very popular.

One of the drawbacks of lingual braces aside from the cost is getting them fitted. Unlike traditional braces which can be attached by any dentist, lingual braces need orthodontists and dentists to have specialized training. The cost of getting them installed is also higher. Initial discomfort is common as the tongue tries to adjust with the new device.


Invisalign is a brand of transparent, removable aligners. It's currently one of the largest makers of clear, removable dental braces.
What sets Invisalign apart is that it eliminates many of the drawbacks that come with traditional braces. For example, it's barely visible and can be easily removed by the wearer during mealtimes. Unlike other braces, gums, supporting tissue and the tongue are less irritated and root absorption is not rapid or widespread.

Root Canal Treatment - The Best Way To Save A Tooth

Root canal treatment, also called root canal therapy, is a procedure used to treat problems of the inside of the tooth, or the dental pulp. It is a way to save teeth that might otherwise have to be pulled.

The most common causes of pulp damage or death are:

- A cracked tooth
- A deep cavity
- An injury to a tooth, such as a severe knock to the tooth, either recent or in        the past.

Root Canal Procedure :

 The procedure basically aims at removing all the decay in the tooth along with the infected soft tissue in the roots and then restoring the tooth with a crown.

   - Firstly, all the decay is removed

   - Access is gained to the roots by opening the tooth up

   - The roots are thoroughly cleaned by either machine driven or hand driven instruments to leave vacant root canals behind

   - These canals are then filled up and sealed with an artificial material called  gutta percha.

After the root canals are filled and sealed, the cavity in the tooth is filled with a strong filling material. This is called core build up.

If the endodontist feels that sufficient healthy tooth structure is not available to support the filling, he/she may decide to take additional support from a post that goes into one of the canals.

Root canal therapy is an excellent way to save a tooth that would otherwise die and need to be removed. City dental centre, Aurangabad offers  effective and painless root canal treatment,at affordable prices in India.
