Improve Your Appearance
AND YOUR HEALTH
Let’s break it down and see how braces work...
So how do you know if you need braces?
A Doctor Can Examine
YOUR CASE AND RECOMMEND TREATMENT
According to the American Association of Orthodontists, you should have your first orthodontic consultation by age seven. However, it is never too late for adults to consider braces, especially with so many discreet options available. In general, you should see a dentist if you have issues such as:
Your dentist will use x-ray images, impressions of your teeth and bite, and other information to design an orthodontic treatment that addresses your unique needs.
So what should you expect during treatment?
What Happens during an Exam?
About a week before bonding your braces, you will need to have spacers placed between your molars to make room for the orthodontic bands.
During this visit, your orthodontist will bond the brackets to the teeth and place the wire and bands.
Throughout treatment, you will return to your orthodontist’s office periodically to adjust your braces. Treatment with braces usually takes between 18 and 24 months.
Once your treatment is complete, your orthodontist can remove your brackets and take impressions for your retainer.
Your dentist will likely recommend scheduling an appointment about 18 months after your treatment ends to make certain that your teeth are remaining in their proper positions.

THAT ALSO LOOKS GREAT
It can take some time to get used to the sensation of being braces-free. Any inflammation, soreness, or sensitivity typically lasts only a few days.
In addition to having a straighter smile, you can expect brushing and flossing your teeth to be much easier. Many patients also choose to enhance their results with teeth whitening or other cosmetic dentistry treatments.

How to Best Maintain
YOUR NEWLY STRAIGHTENED SMILE
Your orthodontic treatment is not over when your braces come off. Following removal, your dentist will provide a custom retainer to help keep your teeth in alignment. You should wear this on a nightly basis or as prescribed by your dentist. This is the best way to prevent your teeth from moving out of place and avoid needing re-treatment in the future.
You should also attend biannual visits with your dentist so he or she can monitor your smile. Impacted wisdom teeth and other issues can cause misalignment, so it is important for your dentist to address any possible complications before they start to affect your smile.
To keep your smile feeling and looking healthy after your braces are removed, you should also practice good oral hygiene at home. Brush twice and floss at least once every day.
This all sounds great. But can I afford treatment?
Braces cost between 2500 AED upto 15,000 AED, depending on the extent of treatment and the type of materials used. The degree of correction needed, the experience of the orthodontist you choose, and even the area in which you live will also play a part in the overall cost of treatment. With a range of options available, your orthodontist can recommend the best type of braces for your needs, as well as a payment or financing plan to help you cover the price of your care starting from 299 AED on monthly basis
What is the single most important cost consideration?
Your Choice of Braces
Today, there are several alternatives to traditional metal braces, including ceramic tooth-colored braces and clear aligners. Each option comes with its own cost.
Traditional braces typically cost about 299 AED monthly basis without insurance coverage. Minor cases of misalignment will generally cost less than more severe jaw-related issues.
Tooth-colored ceramic braces are a popular choice for patients who are looking for a more discreet alternative. If you are interested in ceramic braces, you can expect to pay about a few more than metal braces cost.
Lingual braces are attached to the back of teeth rather than the front. They function the same way as traditional braces, but are not visible when you smile. They are one of the more expensive forms of treatment.
Clear aligner systems such as Invisalign are comparable in price to traditional braces. Invisalign is best suited to mild or moderate cases.
Are there other associated expenses?
Extent of Treatment
More complex cases of misalignment may require more specialized techniques. In addition, a longer treatment timeline will involve more trips to the orthodontist for adjustments.
Another important consideration is the additional cost of retainers, which are necessary to maintain the results of orthodontic treatment. There are several types of retainers available, including fixed and removable.
Choosing an Experienced Orthodontist
As with any medical procedure, it is important to choose a reputable provider. An orthodontist with more experience may charge more for their services, but they may be able to provide a better result.
