Are You Scared of Braces???????


THE REASONS TO GET SCARED OF BRACES ARE


  1. FEAR OF PAIN
  2. LONG TREATMENT TIME
  3. UGLY APPEARANCE/LOOKS
  4. DIFFICULTY IN BRUSHING AND FOOD LODGEMENT
  5. RESTRICTIONS IN FOODS
  6. FEAR OF TOOTH EXTRACTION
  7. FEAR OF DAMAGE TO TEETH
  8. FEAR OF RELAPSE AFTER THE TREATMENT


HOW TO OVERCOME THESE FEAR



1. FEAR OF PAIN

 BRACES TREATMENT DOES NOT INVOLVE TWISTING OR WRENCHING OF TEETH RATHER IT USES CONSISTENT AND GENTLE PRESSURETO REALIGN TEETH. ONLY MILD IRRITATION AND CHANCES OF HAVING ULCERS  INITIALLY FOR A WEEK OR TWO WHICH CAN BE MANAGED WITH APPLICATION OF ANAESTHETIC GEL. THERE IS MINIMAL NEED FOR PAIN KILLERS AS SUCH. SO IN CONCLUSION BRACES REALLY DON'T CAUSE PAIN.

2. LONG TREATMENT TIME

BRACES TREATMENT CAN BE COMPLETED AS EARLY AS 6 TO 8 MONTHS WHICH VARIES INDIVIDUALY. NOWADAYS THERE ARE MULTIPLE ENHANCEMENT PROCEDURES FOR FASTER TREATMENT. THE IMPORTANT ASPECT FOR SHORT TREATMENT DURATION IS AGE OF THE PATIENT. LESSER THE AGE FASTER THE TOOTH MOVEMENT AND LESSER THE TREATMENT DURATION. IDEAL AGE FOR BRACES TREATMENT IS 12- 15 YEARS, ONCE ALL THE PERMANENT TEETH ARE ERUPTED IN THE ORAL CAVITY. 

3.APPEARANCE/LOOKS

NOWADAYS THERE ARE VARIOUS TYPES OF BRACES WHICH ARE RARELY VISIBLE. WE HAVE LINGUAL BRACES I.E. BRACES FROM INSIDE OF TEETH, CERAMIC BRACES WITH TOOTH COLOR WIRE, INVISALIGN TREATMENT WHICH ARE HARDLY VISIBLE. THEREFORE DON'T NEED TO WORRY ABOUT THE APPEARANCE AS YOU CAN ASK FOR ESTHETIC BRACES WHICH WON'T COMPROMISE YOUR LOOKS.

4. DIFFICULTY IN TOOTH-BRUSHING AND FOOD LODGEMENT

NOWADAYS THERE ARE TOOTHBRUSH SPECIALLY DESIGNED FOR BRACES. ALONG WITH THERE ARE SMALL INTER-PROXIMAL BRUSHAND FLOSS WHICH CAN EASILY CLEAN TOOTH. IT IS GENERALLY RECOMMENDED TO BRUSH TEETH TWICE DAILY EVEN FOR DAILY ROUTINE HYGIENE.   

5.DIETARY RESTRICTIONS

INITIALLY YOU WILL HAVE SOME DIFFICULTIES WHILE HAVING FOOD BUT AGAIN THAT IS ONLY IN INITIAL PHASE. YOU NEED TO HAVE FOOD INTO SMALL PIECES. TRY TO AVOID HARD FOOD SUCH AS NUTS AND EVEN IF YOU WANT TO HAVE IT THEN IT HAS TO BE CRUSHED . BESIDES THIS YOU CAN HAVE NORMAL FOOD INCLUDING CHAPATI, DAL, RICE. SO DIETARY RESTRICTIONS ARE MINIMAL AS SUCH.

6. FEAR OF TOOTH EXTRACTION:

TOOTH EXTRACTION IS NOT MANDATORY IN ALL THE CASES, INFACT MOST OF THE CASES NEEDS TO TREATED WITHOUT ANY EXTRACTION. PREMOLARS ARE THE ONE WHICH ARE GENERALLY EXTRACTED WHEN NEEDED. THESE ARE THE BACK TEETH AND SPACE CREATED WILL BE  CLOSED COMPLETELY. SO DON'T FEAR ABOUT EXTRACTION AS MORE THAN 50% CHANCES OF NON-EXTRACTION AS COMPARED TON EXTRACTION. 

7. FEAR OF DAMAGE TO HEALTHY TEETH:

FORCES APPLIED TO TEETH ARE VERY MINIMAL AND WITHOUT CAUSING ANY DAMAGE TO NATURAL TEETH. ADHESIVES APPLIED TO TOOTH CAN BE EASILY REMOVED AND HENCE THERE ARE AS SUCH NO HARM TO THE NATURAL TEETH DURING THE TREATMENT.

8. FEAR OF RELAPSE AFTER THE TREATMENT


VERY SMALL WIRE IS FIXED FROM INSIDE OF THE TEETH. THIS WIRE NEEDS TO BE KEPT FOR MINIMUM PERIOD OF 6 MONTHS OR UPTO 2 YEARS WHICH PREVENTS RELAPSE COMPLETELY. PATIENT NEEDS TO KEEP FOLLOW-UP ONCE IN 6 MONTHS OR IF NEEDED. DON'T NEED TO WORRY ABOUT RELAPSE IF YOU HAVE RETENTION WIRE OR PLATE.
