Efficient Metal Braces in Dubai
The simple answer to straighter teeth
Metal braces are the most common orthodontic treatment for crowded, crooked, and misaligned teeth. Whether you have an abnormal bite due to jaw problems, an injury, or early/late tooth loss, these conditions can be corrected by your conventional “train tracks”. At Micris Dental Clinic, you only get professional orthodontic services for metal braces in Dubai with outstanding quality.
Correcting a bad bite is more than just recreating your smile; it is promoting better oral health. Crowded teeth and other abnormal teeth and jaw alignment conditions can cause further oral problems such as gum diseases and tooth decay if not treated earlier.
Our team of specialist orthodontists will make sure that you get proper care and attention, getting your desired smile at the best time achievable.

What is the process of getting metal braces in Dubai?
Most frequent questions and answers
When getting your new set of traditional metal braces, you may feel that your lips, cheeks, and tongue are sore. It may take you about 1-2 weeks to get used to your new braces. Your orthodontist will give you dental wax to relieve any discomfort.
Soreness during the first and second week of wearing traditional braces is normal. Here are some tips on how to ease the pain during your adjustment period:
- During your first few days of wearing braces, it is advised that you eat soft foods to avoid any strain in your teeth and jaw. This includes soup, mashed potatoes, scrambled eggs, or any food that doesn’t require much chewing.
- Take over-the-counter pain relievers or any medication prescribed by your dentist.
- If your orthodontist recommended an orthodontic wax to avoid mouth sores, be sure to apply it as prescribed.
- If your lips and gums develop sores, gargling a salt and water solution (half a teaspoon of salt one cup of water) can help cure the pain.
There are certain foods that are best to be avoided when you’re wearing braces because they may pop off your brackets. Some of which are the following:
- Chewing gum
- Hard candy
- Corn on the cob/popcorn
The cost of conventional metal braces in Dubai varies from case to case. Prices depend on the complexity of your orthodontic case and the length of treatment needed. On your initial consultation, your orthodontist will discuss with you the treatment cost. Commonly, metal braces cost less than its ceramic counterpart and other alternative orthodontic treatments.
Uneven bites begin to be apparent at the age of 6 to 12 years old, but orthodontic treatments like traditional braces are recommended between ages 10 to 14. It is always best to address teeth alignment problems at an earlier age for easier correction and you save on the cost of braces, too!
Some retainers are removable, consisting of clear plastic trays or metal retainers which you need to wear after removing your braces to keep your teeth in their new positions after the treatment. Your teeth have the tendency to shift back to their old position once the brackets and wires are removed. To prevent this, your specialist orthodontist will fit you a specific retainer and recommend how long and how often you need to wear them.
Good oral hygiene is highly essential when you’re wearing braces. Brushing your teeth and braces regularly can help prevent food from getting stuck in the brackets. You can use an electric toothbrush or ask your orthodontist to recommend a special toothbrush to use. Also, make sure that you floss at least twice a day. Our specialist orthodontists will guide you on proper flossing techniques while wearing your train tracks.
