Unleash Your Most Confident Smile: A Guide to Braces Treatment

Welcome to a brighter future, where your smile radiates self-assurance and well-being! This professional brochure is your comprehensive guide to understanding braces treatment, from unveiling the types and benefits to exploring care tips and appointment schedules.

Unveiling Braces: Your Path to a Perfect Smile

Braces provide gentle pressure, guiding each tooth towards its perfect placement, gradually creating a smile that radiates confidence and health. They consist of bonded brackets on each tooth, connected by a wire that applies gentle pressure for gradual movement.

Who can wear braces?

Good news! There is no age limit for braces. Braces can be worn at any age to improve the alignment of teeth. Braces are for adults also and not just for children and teenagers.

The best time is generally during childhood or adolescence, but adults can get orthodontic treatment too – and more and more are doing so. Age is less important than having the right number of teeth and sound bone health. In younger children it may be necessary to wait for enough teeth to come through before starting treatment.

Adults and children are becoming increasingly particular about how they look and we are here to accommodate their every request.

Arasu Dental Care, one of the best dental clinic in Coimbatore offers the best solutions for misaligned teeth ranging from traditional metal braces, Ceramic braces, Metal Self Ligating, Ceramic Self Ligating braces as well as Clear Aligners (invisible braces).

Why Choose Braces? The Smile Benefits Await

  • Confidence Boost: A radiant smile unlocks doors to self-assurance and social ease. Braces pave the way for a grin you’ll wear with pride, knowing it reflects your inner joy and strength.
  • Improved Oral Health: Straight teeth are easier to clean, reducing the risk of cavities and gum disease. Braces not only enhance your smile but also pave the way for a healthier mouth, free from the worries of hidden plaque and tartar build-up.
  • Enhanced Function: Properly aligned teeth improve chewing efficiency and speech clarity. Braces go beyond aesthetics, optimizing your oral health for all-around well-being, allowing you to savour your favorite foods and express yourself confidently.
  • Long-Term Investment: A straighter smile isn’t just beautiful; it’s an investment in your future. Braces can boost your confidence, improve your oral health, and potentially even open doors to new opportunities, both personally and professionally.

Unveiling the Braces Brigade: Types to Suit Every Smile

  • Traditional Metal Braces: The tried-and-true classics, effective for various orthodontic issues. These are the most affordable option and come in a variety of colours for a fun twist, allowing you to express your personality even during treatment.
  • Ceramic Braces (Clear braces or Invisible braces): Like metal braces but made with a tooth-coloured material for a more discreet look. It is ideal for those who prefer a subtler approach, blending seamlessly with your natural smile.
  • Clear Aligners: Removable trays that gradually shift your teeth. A comfortable and nearly invisible option for mild to moderate orthodontic concerns, ideal for those who value flexibility and a natural-looking aesthetic.

Your Braces Journey: What to Expect

  • Consultation: Discuss your goals and explore the most suitable brace type for your unique smile. This is your opportunity to ask questions and develop a personalized treatment plan.
  • Fitting & Adjustments: Get your braces fitted and prepare for regular adjustments to fine-tune the tooth movement. These appointments are relatively quick and ensure your treatment stays on track.
  • Maintenance & Care: Learn proper brushing and flossing techniques to keep your braces clean and your smile healthy. Your orthodontist will provide you with all the necessary tools and guidance.
  • Retention: After achieving your desired smile, wear retainers to maintain the perfect alignment. This ensures your beautiful new smile stays with you for years to come.

Caring for Your Braces: Keeping Your Smile Sparkling

  • Brush twice daily: Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste to gently clean around your braces and brackets. Brushing removes plaque and food particles that can build up around your braces, keeping your smile healthy and radiant.
  • Floss effectively: Invest in a floss threader or special orthodontic floss to reach between your teeth and brackets. Flossing ensures even the most hard-to-reach areas are clean, preventing gum disease and maintaining optimal oral health.
  • Mind your diet: Avoid hard, sticky, or chewy foods that can damage your braces. Opt for softer foods that are easier to eat and won’t put your braces at risk.
  • Protect your smile: Wear a mouthguard during sports or other activities that could involve contact. This protects your braces from potential damage and ensures your precious smile is safe.
  • Braces expander and braces power chains need to be carefully maintained.
  • Braces Wax can also be placed before the next visit to the clinic.

Do you have to wear retainers after braces?

  • Retainers need to be worn for a minimum of 6 months after braces to hold the teeth in place.

Do braces hurt?

Braces do not hurt. A mild discomfort is experienced by when first placed which is gradually normalized in a couple of weeks.

Appointment Schedule: Staying on Track to Your Dream Smile

Regular appointments are crucial for monitoring progress and adjusting. Your orthodontist will determine the ideal schedule for your specific needs, but typically, visits occur every 4-6 weeks. These appointments are essential for ensuring your treatment progresses smoothly and your smile reaches its full potential.


Metal or traditional braces are the most common type of braces world-wide and have been around for over 100 years now. In the past, braces were very bulky and noticeable. Luckily, braces today are nothing like what they were 100 years ago. Advances in innovation and technology have made braces:

  • Smaller
  • Faster
  • More Comfortable
  • More Effective

Metal braces are most popular among children and adolescent patients. They work by applying the braces to the teeth and connecting them with a wire. The wire is tied to the braces using elastic ties, which come in an array color to choose from. To move the teeth, the orthodontist makes adjustments to the wire at your appointments every 4-6 weeks. 



Ceramic braces are braces made of clear, tooth-colored material. They work in the same way as metal braces but are more discreet and less visible. Compared to metal braces, ceramic braces are less noticeable and present an affordable alternative to metal braces.


 Self-ligating braces are a type of orthodontic treatment similar to traditional metal braces, but with a key difference: they don’t use elastic bands to hold the archwire in place. Instead, they use a built-in mechanism in the brackets themselves, offering several potential benefits for patients.

How do they work?

Think of each bracket as a tiny door on your tooth. In traditional braces, the “door” is closed with an elastic band to secure the arch wire. In self-ligating braces, the “door” has a special clip or latch that shuts automatically, eliminating the need for bands.

What are the potential benefits?

  • Reduced discomfort: With less friction between the wire and the bracket, some patients experience less initial discomfort and pressure compared to traditional braces.
  • Fewer adjustments: Since there are no elastics to replace, you might require fewer visits to your orthodontist (typically every 8-12 weeks instead of 4-6 weeks).
  • Faster treatment: Less friction can sometimes lead to faster tooth movement, potentially shortening your treatment time.
  • Easier cleaning: The absence of elastics can make cleaning around the braces a bit easier.
  • More discreet options: Self-ligating braces come in clear or metal brackets, offering an aesthetic advantage for some patients.
