Traditional Braces
With Modern Quality

Here is everything you need to know about orthodontic treatment with braces at ConfiDent Palm Dentist. 


Dental braces are a type of orthodontic treatment that is used to straighten teeth. They are typically made of metal, or ceramic.


Braces work by applying pressure to the teeth, which causes them to slowly move into their correct position, under the guidance of a skilled orthodontist.

Braces are better for people with severe crookedness and most kids and teens. Invisalign and other brands of clear aligners are best for adults who want a nearly invisible and more comfortable straightening method, as long as the teeth aren't too crooked.

Traditional braces require periodic tightening every 4-6 weeks so steady pressure can gradually straighten your teeth and align your jaw.

Embrace your braces

An attractive smile can boost a person’s self-image and confidence.


But there are many more reasons why someone might need orthodontic treatment with braces, both adults and children.


Braces are very effective in correcting a variety of conditions:

  • Breathing or swallowing problems 

  • Crossbite 

  • Open bite

  • Teeth crowding 

  • Crooked teeth

  • Disfiguring of the face & mouth 

  • Missing or extra teeth 

  • Overjet (protruding upper teeth) 

  • Spacing between teeth 

  • Deep overbite 

  • Underbite (lower jaw protrusion) 

  • For children: Finger or thumb sucking

Braces are a great way to improve your smile and your oral health. Crooked teeth often accumulate plaque that contribute to improper teeth cleaning and that leads to tooth decay. Braces can also help to correct speech problems and make it easier to chew food (your digestion will thank you).


If you were recommended to have orthodontic treatment with braces, there are a few things you should know:


  • Your first couple of visits will include a good planning: evaluation of the medical and dental history, digital scans taken of your bite, photographs of your face and mouth., x-rays.

  • Braces can take anywhere from 1 to 3 years to wear.

  • You will need to see your orthodontist regularly for adjustments to ensure successful treatment.

  • You will need to take good care of your teeth and gums while you have braces.

  • When treatment is completed, the braces will be removed and a new appliance is made: retainers. Usually these retainers are removable or fixed and will maintain the teeth stabilized in the bone, in their new positions.

Here are the types of braces available at ConfiDent Palm Dentist in Dubai


Metal braces

These are the most popular form of treatment, especially among teenagers. These are the conventional type of braces made of high-grade stainless steel and consist of brackets and an arch wire that are attached to the teeth.


Ceramic braces

These braces are made of ceramic brackets and wires and being similar in color to our teeth are used mainly on older teenagers and adult patients who have cosmetic concerns. They can be more expensive.

No matter what type of braces you choose, it is important to follow your orthodontist's instructions carefully. This will help to ensure that your braces are effective and that you have a good experience with treatment.


Here are some tips for taking care of your teeth and gums while you have braces:

  • Brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time.

  • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and quality toothpaste (we advise Hydroxyapatite mineral toothpaste).

  • Floss your teeth once a day.

  • See your dentist for regular checkups and cleanings.

  • If you follow these tips, you can help to keep your teeth and gums healthy while you are wearing braces.


Dental braces can be a great investment in your smile and your oral health.
