Removable dental appliances
Having orthodontic treatment with metal braces that can be removed is a good idea. However, this treatment can only correct very slight dental malposition’s. Invisible aligners are an alternative to these treatments
If the aligners can also be removed, the end result is identical to that obtained with a fixed dental appliance
A removable brace is only part of the treatment for most dental and jaw corrections, as it usually only regulates jaw growth. These removable dental appliances are often used at the start of treatment and help correct the positioning of slightly misaligned teeth. The orthodontist regularly adjusts the “invisible” dental appliance to obtain the desired position of the jaw and teeth. This appliance consists of an inner plastic part, positioned behind the teeth, as well as hooks which pass over or around the teeth. Since this type of braces can be removed, you can easily remove them and clean them when eating or brushing your teeth.
Treatment with Invisible braces: for children or adults?
Since Invisible braces are often used when the teeth and jawbone are still growing, this type of treatment is primarily intended for children and adolescents. This treatment with Invisible braces can also be prescribed for adults, but it will be both longer and more expensive. Adults should ask their health insurance about the exact Invisible braces cost in Lahore, as in most cases the cost of treatment is only covered for children.
Treating dental malposition by fitting Invisible braces
Invisible braces are used to widen the jaw. To do this, it is readjusted at regular intervals. For this purpose, a metal wire in the central part of the dental appliance allows a jack to be loosened, which in turn causes the appliance to widen. The pressure expands the jaw. However, if the Invisible braces are not worn regularly, they often become unusable after a while. This can lead to unpleasant pressure points on the gums and teeth until your braces are properly fitted by your orthodontist.
Advantages and disadvantages of Invisible braces
Each type of treatment for misaligned teeth, including Invisible braces, has its pros and cons. In addition to pain and price, ease of use and aesthetics are important criteria for many people.
Benefits of Invisible braces
As the name suggests, one advantage of Invisible braces lies in its use, it is a brace that can be removed. It can indeed be removed at any time to be cleaned, to eat or for any other reason. This not only helps to clean the dental appliance better, but also to have better oral hygiene than with a fixed dental appliance. Another advantage of Invisible braces is that they can be worn discreetly behind the teeth. Only the small attachment hooks are visible at the teeth, making them more aesthetically pleasing than fixed braces for most people.
Disadvantages of Invisible braces
Alongside these advantages, Invisible braces also have some disadvantages, one of which is pain at the start of treatment.
Due to the pressure exerted to expand the jaw, many patients complain of pain in the jaw and teeth. There is also impaired speech, as the removable dental appliance takes up a relatively large amount of space in the palate and inside the lower jaw. Another disadvantage of Invisible braces is the regular adjustment of the appliance. With each adjustment, it is a waste of time, but also the reappearance of the pain caused by the removable dental appliance.
Invisible braces Cost in Lahore
Invisible braces Cost in Lahore depends on different factors. On the one hand, the duration and the exact type of treatment determine the price of removable dental appliances, on the other hand, not all treatments are covered by health insurance. For adults, the cost of removable dental appliances is their responsibility and varies between 150000 and 250000 Rupees depending on the duration and type of treatment.
