A precise diagnostics is a guarantor of successful treatment

The purpose of diagnostics is to put together a correct treatment plan. In order to do this our doctor must determine how the bones are situated, how the facial muscles function and what can be improved in the patient’s smile.

STAGES OF TREATMENT

01
Panoramic X-ray

This picture shows the direction of teeth roots in adults and shows how the teeth in children are growing and forming. Such details have a significant impact on the treatment plan.

02
X-ray of the side projection of the skull (cephalometry)

It shows the particularities of the skull formation, at which angles the teeth are situated in the bones and the inter-correlation of the jaws.

03
X-ray analysis

We process the X-ray sin a special program allowing us to determine how much and how teeth can be shifted in individual cases of a patient.

04
Treatment visualization

Results of the analysis are presented in the form of photo and video clips. You can see how your face will change after treatment.

05
Analysis of jaw models

We make gypsum models of the jaws. We review the correlation of the upper and lower jaw, the level of overcrowding of the teeth and their symmetry.

06
Photograph of the patient’s face

We take a photograph of the teeth, the full face and a profile, with a smile and without. This shows the symmetry, harmony of the profile and the line of the smile.

07
Choosing the type of braces or plates

On the basis of all calculations our doctor chooses the best type of braces or plates and shows them to you.

We take photographs at the start of treatment and during the process. This allows the patient to monitor how his or her outer appearance is changing.

We show patients the result of treatment PRIOR TO its start.You can see in the presentation how your face will change.

Correction of the positioning of your teeth takes from one to two years. For this reason it is important for our doctor to dedicate that amount of time to the diagnostics as the treatment strategy very much depends on this!

Abnormal bite is a problem not only of an aesthetic smile and face, but it is also a functional problem resulting in serious consequences for the whole body.

 

An interesting fact: 80 % of people need orthodontic treatment.



In adult patients and children aged 12 years and over, braces are used to correct the following problems:

 

  • - dentofacial anomalies
  • - teeth overcrowding
  • - abnormal jaw relation
  • - tooth displacement after extraction or wisdom teeth cutting
  • - temporomandibual disorder
  • - consequences of improper dental prosthetics

 


Orthodontic treatment often prepares the “foundation” for the further work of the implant surgeon and orthopaedic surgeon.

 

Types of braces

 The duration of bite correction is 1 to 3 years. Therefore, you should be scrupulous about the choice of devices.

 

The braces can be as follows:

External and internal (vestibular and lingual)

They differ in the place of attachment. Classic braces are attached to the outer, facial surface of the teeth.
Lingual braces are attached to the lingual surface of the teeth. Such a novelty has immediately found enthusiasts who would like to hide the teeth alignment from the surroundings. However, invisible braces have limited indications for installation, a high price and a number of inconveniences associated with wearing them. For example, speech abnormalities and excessive salivation during the period of addiction.

Ligature and self-ligating
The difference between these devices is in the method of attaching the arc to the lock. For this purpose, special elastic ligatures are used.
In self-ligating braces (not to be confused with self-adjustable braces), the lock structure already contains an attachment. Thus, self-ligating devices have immediately become the best option to combine aesthetics and efficacy treatment.

Material

 

Modern orthodontics offers a wide selection of materials of which locks are made. This allows to choose braces for any taste and budget. The braces can be as follows:

  • 1. Metal braces are a time proved classic. Reliable and durable locks are inferior to aesthetics, but most patients can afford them.
  • 2. Ceramic braces are made of special ceramics, the colour of which is as close as possible to the colour of the teeth. Due to this, ceramic braces are almost invisible on the teeth.
  • 3. Sapphire braces are considered the most aesthetic ones. Clear artificial sapphire has only one drawback — fragility. In addition, sapphire braces are often more expensive than the ceramic ones.
  • 4. Plastic braces are a budget option for aesthetes. Their drawbacks are fragility and staining with food. Manufacturers are still working to improve their properties.
  • 5. Combined braces combine two materials: ceramics and metal. Ceramic locks are installed in the smile area, and metal locks — on the posterior teeth. Thus, a compromise between beauty and reliability is achieved.

How brackets are fixed

Bracket fixation raises a number of questions for future “braces wearers”, like whether it hurts, how long the procedure is, what you can eat, how to brush your teeth, etc.

The fixation procedure on one jaw takes 1 to 1.5 hours, and is a painstaking process. The orthodontist should place the bracket on the tooth in a special position, only then the whole system will work correctly.

“Each bracket in the device is designed for a certain tooth. This is due to the anatomy of the teeth and their position in the jaw”

Before installing, it is important to treat caries and its complications, and a hygienist should remove plaque.

Parents have one choice: correction with removable plates at the ages of 6 to 10 years or a long-term remedial measure with the help of braces at an older age.

MYTHS AND QUESTIONS ANSWERS

  • 1. Is it possible to start treatment without orthodontic diagnostics?

    The specialists of “Porcelain” are very responsible and thorough in their approach to every clinical situation. Thanks to orthodontic diagnostics, the orthodontist fundamentally develops a plan and approximate terms of treatment based on the individual characteristics of the patient. High-quality treatment with a guaranteed result is impossible without specialized diagnostics.

  • 2. How long does diagnostics take?

    This procedure includes 2 stages: working with the patient, and analysis of the information received along with treatment planning. The stage of working with the patient takes up to 1 hour maximum, an average of 30-40 minutes. Diagnostics includes a series of photographs, radiographic examinations and impressions taking.

  • 3. Is it possible to continue treatment with an orthodontist after treatment in another clinic?

    Of course, you can do it. But the final decision is made by the orthodontist of the clinic “Porcelain”. Based on the situation, the doctor may agree with the treatment plan of the previous specialist and continue it or he\she can offer his\her own vision of the situation and advise you to start from scratch.
