Wearing braces and having orthodontic treatment need not be boring and mundane. To make the process more enjoyable and spice things up, the patient can make a fashion statement and adopt a new look by using coloured bands and wires for braces. The coloured brands can be personalised as they come in different shades and colours from light pastel shades and hues to bright and bold colours. Although the colour of the ties and wires can be changed, the elastic ties have a wider range of colour and are easier to change.
Colourful braces have a positive impact on a patient's orthodontic braces treatment. Having that little bit of colour personalisation increases the patient's enthusiasm for the orthodontic braces treatment and increase the patient's cooperation with the dentist. Also, having the choice of colours makes the patient pay more attention to the braces and allows the patient to be more conscious of his/her appearance. This translates into better oral hygiene, increased compliance with the orthodontist's instructions and better and faster treatment outcomes.
Colours are not only chosen to express the patient's individual personality but also to reflect a patient's support for a cause, a team, a school. For example, the color of the braces can be chosen to match the shades of a school uniform or the seasons of a year. This helps the patient to be more engaged with the process of wearing braces and makes it all the more fun and enjoyable.
