Brace systems correct your smile and restore the proportion of your face.

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.

 

STAGES OF TREATMENT

01
Fixed jaws

The lips and position of the jaws are fixed with a special retractor so that the patient can comfortably keep his/her mouth open throughout the procedure.

02
Special treatment of teeth

Each tooth undergoes a special treatment and air-dried for tight contact between the enamel and the lock.

03
Installing braces

Special cement is alternately applied to the teeth and the locks are glued. The residual material around the bracket is removed and illuminated with a photopolymer lamp till complete cement curing. As a rule, the upper jaw is firstly fixed. Fixation to the lower jaw can be carried out immediately or after 1-2 months according to the treatment plan.

04
Installing system

All brackets are connected by an orthodontic arch, the ends of which the doctor “hides” so that they do not bother.

After fixation

  • In the first minutes, there will be a tickling sensation in your mouth but it will disappear quickly. To prevent possible discomfort due to the fact that the lips rub against the locks, the doctor provides a special protective wax. This is a material which is safe for the body and used to simply patch especially scratching elements.
  • In the first two days after bracket fixation or replacing the arch or its activation, pain is possible but it will subside on its own.
  • At the beginning of treatment, it is recommended to minimize the load on the dentition; it is not advisable to bite and gnaw large, solid pieces of food. Avoid sticky and viscous foods.
  • Full addiction to the braces and the new look takes place within one to two weeks.
  • Daily attention should be paid to oral hygiene in the morning and evening. On the recommendation of the orthodontist, you can buy special care products — orthodontic brushes — for high-quality cleaning of the braces from plaque.

MYTHS AND QUESTIONS ANSWERS

  • 1. Can I align my teeth without braces?

    Yes, it is possible to do this with the help of appliances and apparatus at children's age. When the growth period ends, the “Invisalign” system will help to provide the treatment without braces. But each patient is different, the doctor-orthodontist will give you a comprehensive consultation on all possible options.

  • 2. Will everyone see my braces?

    There are 3 main materials of which braces are made: metal, ceramics and sapphire. Metal systems can be noticed on the interlocutor's teeth, but it is necessary to take a closer look to see ceramic or sapphire systems.

  • 3. Can I take part in active or contact sports with braces?

    Of course. For this, you need to order from your doctor-orthodontist the manufacture of a protective mouthguard, which will save you from possible discomfort during an active pastime.

  • 4. Do teeth go bad under braces?

    Under the braces, the tooth surface is hermetically sealed and not subject to a carious process. But with poor hygiene, tooth enamel is often affected along the perimeter of the braces body. This can be avoided by high-quality self-hygiene and regular visits to the hygienist doctor (every 3 months).

  • 5. What are the recommendations after orthodontic treatment?

    Mandatory retention: removable, non-removable or combined. All recommendations will be given to you during the removal of the braces system at the end of treatment.
