Orthodontics – for the correction of your denture
Regardless of age, our teeth can change. There are many children and adults whose teeth have developed incorrectly, are improperly positioned and thus affect their health.
The branch of dentistry called orthodontics developed especially for this common situation. Orthodontics actually means straightening crooked teeth, those improperly positioned on the maxillary arches, crowded and asymmetrical teeth, with the use of a brace.
Dental treatment with the help of orthodontic appliances is performed exclusively by a doctor specialized in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthodontics. The role of the orthodontist is to correct dental-maxillary anomalies by saving the natural teeth and avoid surgery.
Usually, the results do not show up overnight in orthodontics. Instead, it will be noticed in a few months’ time or even after years. The completion of the treatment consists in the removal of the braces which takes place after 2 to 3 years after being set. This is the long-awaited moment of the perfect smile you were dreaming of.
Why wear an orthodontic appliance?
Thanks to high-performance tools and modern equipment, teeth straightening techniques have modernized quite a lot in recent years, and nowadays braces can be considered an accessory pleasing to the eyes.
Its advantages include better oral health, a pleasant appearance and an increased resistance of the teeth.
Types of orthodontic braces
There are several types of braces, which can be chosen according to the needs of each patient.
Fixed braces consist of rings, wires and brackets. The other components are inserted on the rings fixed around the teeth. These appliances are attached to the teeth or rings and can be ceramic or metal. Fixed braces are applied at the beginning of treatment by the orthodontist and are removed only at the end.
Mobile braces come in a variety of shapes and colors, and they work by activating their components. They can be splints, space maintainers, labial or lingual shields, palatal or mandibular plates, retainers. Mobile braces can be removed by the patient himself, to eat or for sanitation.
