Rectification Of The Bite That’s Not Right

October 3, 2022

Braces have always been an infamous term when it came to caring for teeth. The term ‘wooden dentures’ itself could trigger nightmares for kids who needed braces.

Braces are devices installed in order to move your teeth around, it’s also one of the best-known methods to optimally align your teeth. It consists of a bracket that is attached to your tooth and a metal wire that is installed into the brackets. These wires are then tightened to move your teeth in the desired manner. 

Braces are used for functional as well as for cosmetic reasons.


It’s well known that braces for kids are usually more efficient at aligning teeth, there’s no harm or hard and fast rule that braces are ineffective on adults, in fact, braces for adults have been trending for a while now. 


Pediatric dentists in Goa recommend that braces for kids should be ideally installed when they’re teenagers around 12-13 years old as that’s when the permanent teeth set in, there’s no limit to which age you can get braces. Braces for adults can be beneficial to their oral health as well, get in touch with a dentist in Goa to know more details.



The Importance Of Braces: 


Braces for kids, as well as braces for adults, can help to rectify many problems concerned with oral health. Some of them are:


  1. Overcrowding and Crooked Teeth


Overcrowding of teeth could occur due to the size difference of the upper and lowers jaws as well as between the jaw and tooth size. It leads to many teeth forming in the same area, hence “crowding” takes place.


This makes it difficult to clean your teeth properly that could lead to more serious complexions with regards to oral health.

  1. Diastema

Diastema is characterized by having gaps in your teeth. They can go unnoticed however when they’re in the front of your mouth they can cause several confidence issues. Thus braces for children as well as braces for adults help in closing this gap in the right way.

  1. Overjet and overbite.

Commonly called buck teeth, overjet teeth refer to a condition where the upper teeth protrude out and there is a vast difference in alignment of the upper jaw and lower jaw. Overbite teeth refer to your upper jaw overlapping the lower jaw. It leads to difficulty in biting and chewing, damage to gums and teeth and could lead to breathing issues.

  1. Underbite

Underbite refers to a condition where the lower jaw lies ahead of the upper jaw. It may cause difficulty in chewing as well as challenges with speaking.

  1. The perfect smile

Braces for kids and braces for adults helps to give them the perfect smile.


Types Of Braces:

While in reality, they’re not half as daunting as they sound, and with innovation, you have the privilege to choose from multiple options depending on your budget, aesthetics, confidence and speed at which you want your treatment to last. Dentists in Goa offer these types of brace: 

  1. Traditional Braces / Metal Braces

The most well known and mental image that pops up when someone says braces. However, they’re plates are relatively smaller than what they used to be. Metal braces are made out of stainless steel. The brackets are bonded to the teeth and a metal wire is used to connect the braces.


Some braces also have rubber bands to increase the pressure at which the teeth are made to move.

The most common braces for kids, you can also avail color options. Do check in with your pediatric dentist in Goa.


Traditional braces are the most pocket friendly as well as give you color options when it comes to the metal brackets.


Traditional braces are the most visible of them all.


  1. Ceramic Braces

A popular choice amongst braces for adults, ceramic braces are hard to notice. Their brackets are translucent hence cant be detected easily. Their wires as well can be made with the same material making them more attractive.


Ceramic braces are relatively less visible than traditional braces and move your teeth faster than Invisalign.


Ceramic braces are relatively costlier compared to traditional braces. If not cared for, the bracket can get stained.

  1. Lingual Braces

Lingual braces are made with the same metal brackets and wires as traditional braces, however they’re placed behind the teeth, hence not clearly visible.


Lingual braces are not visible as they’re placed behind your teeth.


Apart from being more costly, lingual braces are more difficult to clean and are not suitable in extreme cases. Lingual braces also take longer than metal braces to fix your teeth.

  1. Invisalign:

Invisalign consists of 18-30 mouth guard templates which are called aligners. They are generated using computer simulation and need to be changed every two weeks. When considering braces for adults, Invisalign can be one of the best options if the concern is a specific type of incorrect bite. It’s best to consult the pediatric dentist in Goa or dentist in Goa.

Advantages:Invisalign is clear and hence almost invisible. You can also eat and drink anything as you please.

Disadvantages: Invisalign, with being the best in the market can also be the costliest among the rest.

After reading positive reviews, I wanted to give it a try, I must say I had a very good experience. I had a filling done with another dentist for my front tooth, it was not matching my tooth colour.When smiling people used to tell me I have lipstick on my teeth and I had to tell them that it’s a filling and not lipstick. Dr. Schuyler had replaced the filling which is matching my teeth colour. He is very informative and explains everything in details which is easy for the patient to understand. Very happy with their service. In future will be getting my implants done with him. Highly recommended.

Cool Dentist period!!I am visiting this clinic from past 3 months, got the best treatment possible. I had a front chipped tooth which Dr Schuyler fixed and made it look as it was naturally ,which boosted my confidence in social and professional life. I was treated by Dr Anthea also she was the sweetest doctor ever taking care of her patients in the most professional way. The staff is too good with the patients , giving follow-up calls and reminders in a very polite and gentle way.Overall one of the best Dentist clinic. Worth it.

With the pandemic in 2019, I never consulted a dentist until I moved back to Goa, India, last month (June 2022).As I was googling and looking for a good dentist in Margao, I came across - Smile Craft. Their website was nice and fancy among all the other dental clinics, but I wasn't sure if they were the best.Yet, I thought I would give them a shot. My primary concern was my molar which went wrong after I did a root canal years back. So I got my appointment booked and was consulted by Dr. Schuyler.The first thing I mentioned to him was let's extract the molar instead of fixing it, as I had no hope of improving it. However, Dr. Schuyler wasn't ready to extract it and believed it still could be fixed. Dr. Schuyler and their team always provide the best advice to get that beautiful smile crafted :)Well, If it could be all fixed - I was all up for it. After a couple of visits, my teeth are as good as they could be. Their team uses A1 quality dental filling; you can't even notice you have a filling. It matches your tooth color, unlike some dentists using cheap quality, which feels like POP stuck on your teeth.Also, they're very cautious while completing their dental procedure with no pain at all. I nearly dozed off once.I think the Smile Craft team is one of the best out there. I recommend it to everyone looking to get their smile crafted by the best team - SMILE CRAFT is the place!!

Dr Schuyler is very friendly and truly a spectacular dentist. The quality of service I received during my treatment is simply outstanding. I have done 1 filling, and one tooth implant ,which was done with gentle care and no pain, during the implant Dr explain everything to me what he was doing which I think is very professional.Overall my experience in the surgery was amazing. I would like to say special thanks to Dr Schuyler ,and everyone who works at Smile Craft ,you all doing a great job.Highly recommend

Dr Schuyler is one of the best dentists in Goa! Had visited him for a couple of tooth colored fillings and was very impressed. His work stands out, I cannot even tell that my tooth has a filling! It looks so natural! The clinic is clean and the staff is very polite and professional. Yes, it did take me time to get an appointment, but now I realize why. Certainly recommend Smile Craft to anyone looking at getting quality dental treatment done.
