When it’s time for braces

Do I need braces?

A dentist usually recommends a denture to improve the patient’s physical “orofacial” appearance. With dental control, problems such as oblique teeth or crowded bite, overbite, subtlety, wrong jaw position or defects in the jaws can be corrected.

When is the time for braces?

Patients with orthodontologic problems can be treated at any age. The ideal time for setting up a toothpick is between 10 and 14 years, when the head and mouth are still growing and the teeth are more susceptible to straightening. However, since all types of face-to-face adjustments can be traumatic for children of these ages, parents should discuss the issue with the child before the denture is inserted. And the toothpick is not just for children. More and more adults wear dentistry to correct minor problems and improve their smiles.

What kind of braces will I need?

Your dentist decides which braces is best for your specific problem, but as a patient you often have a choice. There are three main variants of the dental position. The most popular type is a fixed metal or plastic toothpaste that is stuck to the tooth and appears significantly less. The variant called “lingual” is a fixed tooth position attached to the back of the teeth so it can not be seen. Traditional fixed denture, or “rails” is the variant that covers most of the teeth with metal bands twisted around the tooth. All variants use threads to move the teeth to the desired position.

For how long time do i need to wear braces?

It depends on the treatment plan. The more complicated space or betting problems you have, and the older you are, the longer your normal treatment period. Most patients must wear full teeth between 18 and 30 months, and then a “retainer” for at least a few months and up to two years to fix the tissue around the erect teeth. Some patients must wear a retainer permanently so that the bite will not return to what it used to be.

Do the treatment hurt?

The interconnected threads are tightened at each visit and give a gentle pressure on the braces to gradually move teeth or jaws to the desired position. Your teeth and jaws may feel slightly sore after each visit, but it goes fast. Also keep in mind that you may need to pull out teeth to get enough space to move your teeth with the teeth and adjust the jaws.

Who performs the treatment?

The dentist your family uses is responsible for coordinating your dental care and this may include a Dental control treatment plan, including diagnosis, examinations and dental control. However, your dentist may refer you to an “orthodontist” – a dentist with specialist training in developing, preventing and correcting teeth, bites and jaws and related facial abnormalities.
