Over the years we, at Xmile Orthodontics, have seen a cohort of questions getting repeated in some of the other way. For people, it is both intimidating and difficult to understand how their overbite and underbite problems are solved, or how their teeth can be aligned in the most perfect way possible.
If you have had such or similar questions, here are the answers to them.
This is an extremely subjective question. The cost of braces would be dependent upon the complexity of the alignment of the teeth, the material used and the period for which the braces will have to be put up. That said, you can expect the entire procedure to cost somewhere around $5000, if you go to a seasoned professional who provides the best services.
Most of the times, your dentist will be the best person to answer this question. For the initial period of having started with braces, it is recommended that you keep your diet simple and liquid heavy. Over a period of time, once your braces have held their position, you can shift to eating your normal diet without any hesitation or complication.
Braces are supposed to bring your teeth into the right alignment, whereas the retainers are supposed to give your teeth internal support. This support is crucial in determining the definitive shape of your teeth.
Many people believe that mere usage of braces would do the job for them and they will not need retainers. That is far from reality. Braces and retainers, combined, make up the process of realignment of teeth. Without retainers, your teeth may not get into the perfect shape and you might even have to repeat the entire process starting right from ground zero. Thus, finish up the entire process and wear both braces as well as retainers as instructed by your dental expert.
