Braces can rectify a variety of dental problems, such as a misaligned bite, an overbite or underbite, and misaligned teeth, etc. This is an effective method to adjust the bite to the proper position, bringing a more charming and confident smile.
Dental braces is a form of dentistry treatment that corrects misaligned teeth conditions such as crooked teeth, protruding teeth, overbites, underbites, and other abnormalities. This procedure can improve facial attractiveness by bringing harmony and balance to the face.
Dental Braces involves employing brackets in combination with specialized dental tools to create a bonding force, bringing the teeth to the correct position on the jawbone. Dentists will evaluate teeth movements and provide a treatment plan for a period from 1.5 to 2 years based on each individual instance. Customers' teeth will be examined and an initial diagnostic of the teeth condition will be provided by dentists.
- Consistent teeth displacement
The new Dental Braces treatment can provide even and consistent traction, allowing the teeth to move steadily according to the dentists’ regimen without being displaced or moving in the wrong direction. Because the impact force alternating between pulling force and resting is very systematic, the teeth will remain a stable resting duration after each pulling force until they are brought back to the most ideal position.
- Painless procedure with stabilized brackets
To enhance traction as desired, dentists will use specialized equipment to modify the teeth without removing the brackets, preserving all of the effects of tooth movements.
- No damage to the jawbone
No matter which direction the teeth move, the jawbone can adapt well and will not degrade after undergoing Dental Braces. Because the pressure created by the brackets is consistent, the jawbone has adequate time to rest and regenerate.
- Ensure the planned progress
Previous dentistry methods may concern customers for not ensuring the progress as planned. However, the advanced Dental Braces technique at Ngoc Phu Aesthetic Hospital is committed to offer the precise treatment duration as intended for each customer, specifically from 1.5 to 2 years.
This procedure is suitable for people with:
- Uneven teeth

- A misaligned bite, an overbite or an underbite
- Examination and consultation
Customers' teeth will be examined and an initial diagnostic of the teeth condition will be provided by the dentist.
- Create a treatment plan
The dentist will take impressions of the jaw to diagnose the state of the teeth and provide the most appropriate treatment plan.
- Take teeth impressions and design brackets
The dentist will take impressions of the teeth with plaster to make jaw frames in order to attach brackets more precisely. The dentist can accurately design each stage of teeth movements according to the treatment regimen with the help of the plaster sample.

Before And After Photos
Are braces harmful to the teeth?
Braces do not weaken or damage teeth, and in fact, they strengthen them. Crooked teeth are very difficult to clean, leading to the risk of gingivitis, periodontitis and early tooth loss. After undergoing Dental Braces, customers will own perfectly functioning teeth that are more convenient for hygiene, making the teeth stronger. The Dental Braces procedure brings not only aesthetics but also positive health effects.
Chewing efficiency is also affected by misaligned teeth or the transmission of misdirected chewing force, and braces can help alleviate this problem by generating the optimal bite.
In which cases should teeth be extracted before undergoing Dental Braces?
Cases that require tooth extraction before performing Dental Braces include:
- The teeth are misaligned and overcrowded.
- Treatment for underbites or overbites.
- Loose teeth, bone loss that cannot be remained.
- The teeth lack a lot of substance, damaged endodontics, and impacted teeth.
Do braces cause sunken cheeks?
Customers must abstain from eating hard foods during the Dental Braces process. Many women are anorexic, and braces will make them even more so since the teeth will be slightly uncomfortable, limiting chewing activity and preventing the chewing muscles from exercising consistently, resulting in smaller muscles and a slimmer face.
Men's eating and drinking habits are normally stronger, but the phenomenon of sunken cheeks is just temporary, once the braces are removed, customers can eat and drink more comfortably, and the overall face will return to normal.
How to clean the teeth when wearing braces?
Because the Dental Braces process requires employing a lot of appliances, oral hygiene is extremely important throughout the braces period, and the teeth must be cleaned everyday. Customers must remember the following instructions for proper hygiene:
- Gently brush the teeth in a vertical or circular motion. Customers can also use a mechanical brush with a vibrating mechanism, which is much cleaner and more comfortable.
- After every meal, clean the teeth with dental floss and an interdental brush.
- Use mouthwash and water flosser on a regular basis.
- When the appliances irritate the lips or tongue, customers must notify the dentist for proper treatment.
- To reduce appliance loss when wearing braces, abstain from chewy, hard, and flexible foods.
- Return to the hospital for periodic check-ups every month as scheduled.
