Lower jaw braces are a dental service that many people are interested in. What is this method, who can use it, how much does it cost… all will be answered through this article.
Lower jaw braces are not much different from regular braces. The dentist uses tools to straighten teeth into the desired position. Many people think that braces on only the lower jaw will be easier than braces on the upper jaw or both jaws. However, reality shows that the difficulty of the treatment depends on the patient’s tooth condition and the doctor’s expertise.
In fact, there are quite a few cases where doctors prescribe lower jaw braces. This method only applies to patients with a relatively standard bite, the upper jaw is beautiful but the lower jaw has some defects. Here are some cases:
If the distance between the lower teeth is too far, it will cause food to accumulate, making it difficult for the patient to clean their teeth and creating a suitable environment for bacteria to grow. Lower jaw braces can fix gaps of no more than 3mm. If the gap is larger, the patient should have braces on both jaws.
Lower jaw protrusion affects the chewing process of food, causing jaw muscles to tire quickly. Besides, this condition also reduces the patient’s aesthetics because it is easy to recognize with the naked eye. Lower jaw braces can solve this problem, saving time and money.
Underbite teeth not only cause inconvenience when eating but also make the face less aesthetic. Lower jaw braces can correct mild cases of underbite. If the patient has an underbite due to bone, this technique is very difficult to completely fix because this condition requires extensive intervention in both jaws.
In some cases, patients only see the lower jaw misaligned with the naked eye and want to save money so they decide to get lower jaw braces. However, this is completely wrong. To determine the correct treatment method, you should go to a reputable dentist for a thorough examination and consultation.
If the patient insists on getting braces on the lower jaw despite the doctor’s advice, there may be consequences such as:
Normally, the doctor will advise braces on both jaws for maximum treatment effectiveness. When braces on both jaws, the impact force will be more precise than with braces on the lower jaw and give the best results.
Like regular braces, lower jaw braces are also divided into the following types:
This method has the advantages of good traction and low price, so it is favored by patients. However, lower jaw braces with metal braces are less aesthetically pleasing and are not suitable for people working in positions where appearance is important.
Lower jaw braces with ceramic braces are more aesthetically pleasing than metal braces, but the price is about 30% higher. In addition, when wearing ceramic braces, patients need to limit eating colored foods such as gac, turmeric… to avoid staining the braces.
Lingual lower molar braces are popular with many patients because of their high aesthetics. The disadvantage of this method is that the orthodontic time is longer and requires a highly qualified and experienced doctor.
This method uses a series of transparent plastic trays to brace the lower teeth. Extreme convenience and aesthetics are the outstanding advantages of this technique. However, braces without brackets are less effective if the patient only has braces on one jaw.
