What is a Bracket?

The small metal pieces that are attached to the teeth during braces treatment are called "brackets". Braces treatment is applied to correct the shape and position of the teeth, and brackets are applied to align the teeth correctly.

During braces treatment to correct the teeth, brackets are glued onto the teeth. Wires are then used to connect the brackets to each other and these wires are stretched. After the brackets are attached to the patient's teeth, the braces are checked at regular intervals and the wires are tightened. In this way, the position of the teeth is changed. The duration of braces treatment can vary from a few months to several years, depending on the current condition of the patient's teeth.

One of the most important parts of braces treatment is the brackets. This is because the brackets play a critical role in the process of straightening the teeth. Although braces treatment can be a long process that requires regular check-ups, it is considered an excellent way to have correctly aligned and healthy teeth.

However, it is possible to experience various problems during bracket use. The main one is pain. Pain may occur in the mouth during or after the braces are inserted. Although this pain, which is usually mild, subsides within a few days, painkillers can increase the comfort of the patient during this period.

Gum sensitivity may develop after the braces are fitted. In this case, it is necessary to clean the gums regularly and use the dental floss and toothbrush recommended by the dentist.

It is possible to see discoloration of the teeth during the use of braces. Such situations can be remedied by cleaning the teeth after the brackets are removed. Some patients may experience speech problems after the braces are burned. This situation improves within a few days after getting used to the brackets. If the brackets cause swallowing problems, dentists may need to correct the brackets. For the success and comfort of bracket treatment, the dentist's recommendations should be followed exactly.

What are the Types of Brackets?

There are different types of brackets and the type of bracket to be used depends on various patient-specific factors.

Metal Bracket

Metal brackets, which are frequently used in dentistry, are mostly made of stainless steel. In this way, they adhere better to the teeth. In braces treatment, small tires are used to hold the wire passing through the metal brackets in place. Arc wires in metal braces have a thin structure. Today, smaller metal brackets are used in braces treatment. Metal brackets are considered to be advantageous solutions because they have less friction with the archwires.

Ceramic Bracket

Because they are made of ceramic material, ceramic braces have a more natural tooth color. Thanks to the aesthetic advantage it brings with it, it is often preferred in braces treatments. However, since ceramic brackets have large sizes, food accumulation may occur on the teeth. Accordingly, patients with ceramic braces should pay due attention to oral and dental care. The structure of ceramic brackets is more fragile than metal brackets. In addition, it is possible to prolong the treatment time due to more friction with archwires.

Lingual Bracket

Lingual braces, which are more costly than other types of braces, are designed specifically for the patient. Since the braces are placed on the back of the teeth and the brackets are located on the back of the teeth, the braces are not visible when laughing or talking. This eliminates aesthetic concerns. The lingual bracket, which is less affected by the procedures performed on the surface of the teeth because it is behind the teeth, also prevents scars on the teeth.

Damon Bracket

Damon braces, also called "self-ligating", are similar to metal braces. It is a type of bracket with low friction. In this way, it can help to achieve fast results in a short time.

Transparent Plaque

Clear aligner treatment, also known as brace-free treatment, can replace braces or brackets. In this method, which uses patient-specific transparent aligners instead of brackets, a slight pressure is applied to move the teeth to the desired position.

Compared to traditional metal brackets, clear aligner treatment brings many advantages. It is also aesthetically advantageous as it is less prominent. Clear aligners that fit snugly to the teeth are easy to use. Since they are removable, oral and dental hygiene is easily ensured.

In Which Cases Are Braces Applied?

Although braces are thought to be a treatment method that works only in childhood, braces can also be applied in adulthood and extremely successful results can be obtained. For braces to be applied in children, deciduous teeth must have fallen out and all permanent teeth must have erupted. Bracket treatment cannot be applied to children whose deciduous teeth have not fallen out.

  • Braces are applied to ensure that the teeth are properly aligned, to close the gaps between the teeth, to correct crooked or jaw closure problems.
  • Braces can be applied to ensure the correct positioning of the teeth in the jawbone and to increase the chewing function of the teeth.
  • Braces can be used to correct incompatibilities between the upper and lower jaw and to achieve a healthier jaw bite.
  • Bracket treatment can also be used in case of overlapping teeth or rotation problems in the teeth.

However, it is not correct and possible to use a racket to solve every dental problem. In this context, dentists identify and evaluate the problem specific to each patient and determine the most appropriate treatment method.

How Should Bracket Care Be?

One of the most important factors for the protection of dental health and the success of the treatment is to apply bracket care correctly. For this, teeth should be brushed and flossed regularly. The area around the brackets and wires should be brushed carefully, especially around the brackets, as food accumulation around the brackets and wires can cause tooth decay.

Hard and sticky foods should be avoided to prevent food accumulation around the brackets. In addition, the dentist should be visited regularly for the maintenance of the brackets. During this visit, the dentist will check the brackets and make the necessary adjustments.

Why Do Brackets Break?

Since brackets are made of extremely durable materials, it is not common for them to break. Rarely seen bracket fracture is usually due to the consumption of hard foods. There is a risk of breaking the brackets when hard foods with shells are bitten with the teeth.

Another factor that causes the brackets to break is the weakening of the adhesives used during the application over time and the adhesives that come out of their place and cause rapid fracture. In such cases, even if the bracket does not break, if the adhesive material weakens and the brackets dislodge, the bracket must be re-glued. Otherwise, the success of the treatment may be negatively affected.

How to Choose Brackets in Braces Treatment?

In the orthodontic treatment process, the attachments glued on the teeth to move the teeth are called "brackets". There are many different types of brackets. However, even though the type of brackets changes, their role in the braces treatment process and the purpose of the treatment do not change. Which bracket will be used during braces treatment is determined by the dentist on a patient-specific basis, depending on the shape of the defect in the teeth and the problem to be eliminated.

During bracket selection, the patient's age, aesthetic expectations, cost and the dentist's recommendations are evaluated. Then the right choice is made to ensure the success and comfort of the treatment.

Bracket Prices

Bracket prices vary depending on the current condition of the patient's teeth, the type of bracket preferred, the duration of the treatment and other factors. Since the treatment process is planned individually for the patient, bracket prices can be determined after the patient is examined.
