Our Braces Solutions

Types of Braces at Vivid Dental Surgeons

At Vivid Dental Surgeons, we understand that every smile is unique. We offer a variety of braces options tailored to your specific needs:

Metal Braces

  • Description: Traditional metal braces are made from high-quality stainless steel. They consist of brackets attached to each tooth and connected by a thin archwire, which gently guides the teeth into their proper position.
  • Benefits: Metal braces are the most effective at treating complex dental issues. They are also cost-effective and reliable.
  • Aesthetic Options: Patients can personalize their braces with coloured bands to make the experience more enjoyable and unique.

Ceramic Braces

  • Description: Ceramic braces function just like metal braces but are made from a ceramic material that blends in with the natural colour of the teeth, making them less noticeable.
  • Benefits: They offer a discreet way to achieve the benefits of braces without the prominent look of metal, ideal for adults and older teenagers.
  • Considerations: While ceramic braces are less visible, they require more careful maintenance and can be more fragile than their metal counterparts.

Braces (Orthodontics)

Lingual Braces

  • Description: Lingual braces are custom-made to fit on the inside surfaces of the teeth, making them invisible from the outside.
  • Benefits: They are completely hidden from view, providing a great cosmetic alternative for those concerned about the appearance of braces during social interactions or professional activities.
  • Considerations: Lingual braces can be more challenging to clean and may initially affect speech. They also tend to be more expensive than traditional braces.

Braces (Orthodontics)

Clear Aligners

  • Description: Clear aligners are a series of transparent, plastic trays that fit closely over the teeth to gradually move them into alignment. Each tray is worn for about two weeks before moving on to the next in the series.
  • Benefits: Aligners are nearly invisible and can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing, offering a highly flexible and discreet treatment option.
  • Considerations: They require discipline, as they must be worn for at least 22 hours daily to be effective. They are not suitable for all orthodontic conditions, especially more complex cases.

Choosing the Right Braces

Choosing the correct type of braces depends on several factors, including the patient’s orthodontic needs, lifestyle, and aesthetic preferences. Our dentist will discuss these options in depth during the initial consultation at Vivid Dental Surgeons. They will provide recommendations based on the patient’s specific conditions and desires, ensuring that each patient receives personalized and effective treatment.

Why Choose Braces?

Transforming Your Smile and Oral Health

At Vivid Dental Surgeons, we understand braces are a significant commitment, but the benefits extend far beyond a straighter smile. Here’s why choosing braces can be one of the best decisions for your dental health and overall well-being:

Enhanced Oral Health

  • Prevent Dental Issues: Misaligned teeth can contribute to serious dental problems, including uneven wear, difficulty in cleaning, and increased risk of cavities and gum disease. Braces help align the teeth, making them easier to clean and reducing the risk of future dental complications.
  • Improved Bite and Jaw Alignment: Correcting the bite reduces stress on the jaw joints and muscles, alleviating symptoms of TMJ disorders and other jaw-related issues.

Boosted Self-Confidence

  • Aesthetic Improvements: A straighter smile can dramatically enhance your facial aesthetics, boosting confidence and self-esteem. This can profoundly impact personal, social, and professional interactions.
  • Lasting Smile Satisfaction: Achieving a smile you are proud to show off can make a lasting difference in your life, influencing how you interact with others and perceive yourself.

Correction of Dental Irregularities

  • Spacing and Crowding: Braces effectively address spacing issues (gaps between teeth) and crowding, which occurs when teeth are too close, overlapping, or twisted.
  • Overbite, Underbite, Crossbite, and Open Bite: These bite irregularities can affect your ability to eat and speak and even alter facial structure. Braces can realign the jaw and teeth to their proper position.

Long-Term Dental Stability

  • Maintain Teeth Position: After the teeth have been aligned, braces help ensure they stay in position, reducing the risk of shifting as you age.
  • Preventative Care: Orthodontic treatment is a proactive step in maintaining your oral health, helping avoid costly and extensive dental procedures in the future.

Personalized Care at Every Step

  • Tailored Treatments: At Vivid Dental Surgeons, we provide personalized care tailored to each patient’s unique dental profile and treatment goals.
  • Comfort and Support: We are committed to making the process as comfortable as possible, providing ongoing support and guidance throughout your treatment journey.
  • Modern Technology: We utilize modern dental technology to ensure efficient, effective, and less invasive treatment options.

Caring for Your Braces

Maintaining your braces is crucial for the success of your orthodontic treatment. At Vivid Dental Surgeons, we are committed to guiding you through every aspect of braces care. Proper maintenance not only helps in achieving optimal results but also ensures your comfort throughout the treatment process. Here’s what you need to know:

1. Cleaning Your Braces

  • Brushing Techniques: Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. Brush around each part of your braces and every surface of your teeth — front, back, and chewing surfaces — at least twice daily. Consider using an interdental brush to clean between braces and under wires.
  • Flossing Daily: Flossing with braces takes longer but is vital for removing debris between the teeth and gums to prevent plaque buildup. Use waxed floss or a floss threader to navigate the floss behind the wires.
  • Rinsing Often: Use an antiseptic dental rinse to help reduce inflammation and decrease the irritation that braces may cause.

2. Eating with Braces

  • Foods to Avoid: Avoid sticky, hard, and chewy foods. Items like caramel, nuts, hard candy, popcorn, and gum can damage your braces. Also, avoid biting into hard fruits like apples and carrots; cut them into small, manageable pieces.
  • Recommended Foods: Soft foods are best for braces. Incorporate healthy, soft options like yoghurt, bananas, pasta, and soft-cooked vegetables into your diet.
  • Eating Tips: Take small bites and chew slowly and gently. This makes it easier to eat and protects your braces from damage.

3. Managing Discomfort

  • Recommended Foods: Soft foods are best for braces. Incorporate healthy, soft options like yoghurt, bananas, pasta, and soft-cooked vegetables into your diet.
  • Eating Tips: Take small bites and chew slowly and gently. This makes it easier to eat and protects your braces from damage.

4. What to Do if Something Breaks

  • Immediate Action: If a bracket breaks or a wire comes loose, contact Vivid Dental Surgeons as soon as possible to arrange a repair appointment.
  • Temporary Solutions: Cover sharp edges with dental wax and avoid touching the broken parts.

5. Regular Dental Visits

  • Orthodontic Check-ups: Attend all scheduled appointments so adjustments can be made to your braces, ensuring your treatment is progressing as planned.
  • Professional Cleanings: Regular cleanings by a dental professional are crucial to maintaining oral health and preventing gum disease or tooth decay during treatment.

Pricing

Braces treatment can be very costly in Singapore. Therefore, it is essential to understand the financial budget before committing. Depending on the types of braces that you choose, the monthly cost of braces treatment can typically cost around SGD$150 to SGD$300 for metal braces and SGD$200 to SGD$320 for ceramic braces. Lingual braces cost much more than metal braces and ceramic braces because they require more time to be applied to the teeth, and the availability to customize them can also contribute to a price bump.

 

Therefore, it is essential to research and find out more information on braces treatment in Singapore before deciding whether braces treatment is needed. Our team at Vivid Dental Surgeons can help you understand what braces best suit your teeth. We also consider your lifestyle and budget before recommending any product to you. After all, braces treatment can be for people of all ages – from children to adults! We’ll help you find the best tooth wear for you that improves your oral health and adds a confidence boost to your appearance.

Conclusion

At Vivid Dental Surgeons, we ensure you have all the tools and knowledge necessary to effectively care for your braces. Following these guidelines will make your orthodontic journey as smooth and successful as possible. Our team is always here to help you with any concerns or questions you might have about your braces care routine.
