Align teeth with braces
Helpful Hints / / August 12, 2017
Malocclusion (between teeth of the upper and lower jaw) and deformation of the dentition, alas, do not add face harmony.You look at the smiling Critters-Americans and wonder why their teeth Rovno, and we do not.It's simple: they are friends with braces and all sorts of brackets, and are childhood friends.We also have to smile less often hiding their discordant ranks.
can be a long lament about the fact that at the time of our parents are not plagued us all sorts of plates ... But is it worth?Today, teeth correction has no age limit, and turn to the orthodontist, after a while you will have to clove clove, but most importantly, you can correct your child's teeth, depriving him of all sorts of possibilities, as an adult, with a reproach to remember the shortcomings of parents.
But there are still many, even well-informed mom and dad, do not rush to lead their children to a specialist - to fix teeth always have time ... This is true, but doctors believe that the ideal age for treating orth
There is another important point: the deformation of the dentition and malocclusion over time create not only a cosmetic problem.Irregular teeth start to hurt and shake the teeth on the opposite jaw, and themselves become more mobile, there are gaps between them or, conversely, overly dense areas closing.In such teeth stuck everything, well almost impossible to clean them, and caries right there (he likes to settle on the contact surfaces of the teeth).And if on top and a bite "wrong" may appear disruption temporomandibular joint, chewing problems, headaches and pain in the masticatory muscles.
Where that is taken
anomalies of dental system can often be inherited.But there are other reasons: illness, transferred to a child, breast-feeding deficiencies, delayed change of milk teeth, jaw underdevelopment, bad habits.Wean baby sucking her thumb, a bite the lower lip, biting his pencil or sleep with his hand under his cheek, it is worth at least because it can lead to an unbalanced development of the jaws.
curvature requires patience
Braces were invented by the American orthodontist Edward Engle about a hundred years ago.And so far they remain the most effective way to treat orthodontic abnormalities.
Thanks to the system, consisting of fasteners (glued to each tooth a special adhesive) and fixed on their arcs and rods, the physician can build a set of teeth, moving every single tooth in the desired direction.
say at once: the use of even the most modern bracket system does not give quick results.In the correction of teeth in children and adults, on average, it takes from 1 to 2.5 years.And this is only the period of continuous wear braces.The most important and difficult part of the treatment - consolidate the results achieved.It is likely that after the removal of braces teeth if you do not try to take the former position, then approach them.Therefore orthodontists prescribe the wearing of special retention devices of different designs (retainers), whose main task - to stabilize the results and keep the teeth in the correct position.In some cases, there is a need to carry them around the clock, in others - only use at night.The duration of "locking" a period twice longer than the treatment itself.At this time, you need to strictly follow all your doctor appointments, otherwise all the effort spent in the struggle for a beautiful smile will be fruitless.
a slight discomfort and great benefits
Early treatment orthodontist caution and small and large patients about all the inconveniences that it takes wearing braces.Problem: The discomfort in the mouth, excessive salivation, difficulty in chewing.However ... After a week of getting used to the device so that simply cease to notice it.
Problem: The need for strict adherence to the diet.For adolescents it is especially problematic, because fall under the ban:
- soda, candy, cookies, waffles, etc. (sugar and starch contribute to the development of caries).
- candies, lollipops, toffee, gum, popcorn, nuts, chips (they may damage and weaken the brackets and rods);
- hot and cold - ice cream!(Temperature differences can lead to peeling of the bracket from the tooth enamel).
And more.Nibble and chew on the front teeth can not.Arrange snacks when there is no possibility to use special brushes for cleaning braces, too.However ... With these forced measures your child's diet instead of useless and sometimes harmful products frankly filled with tasty and wholesome food.Health Benefits colossal.
problem : Violations of diction.However, ... 7 - maximum 10 days later - lips and tongue get used to the new situation, and it will become clear again.
problem : Braces system requires especially careful oral hygiene.Instead, morning and evening, "jogging" brushing the teeth will have three times a day for 15 minutes to brush your teeth with the whole design of two special brushes, and cleaning brush.If we take this procedure negligently, then in the end you can get a very smooth, but the yellow carious teeth.However ... You brackets and glue, which they are fixed, do not bring harm to the teeth, but undeleted leftover food - great environment

Ask the professionals
Comment dentist orthodontist Julia Teslenko:
main reason for complicated cases of dentoalveolar anomalies - inattention parents.Almost every case could be prevented if parents periodically showed orthodontists their babies.After all, the sooner treatment is started, the faster, less painful and less expensive it will be released.Yet age limit for correcting the bite and the dentition is not.The only obstacle to fix dentition - false teeth.50% of my patients - over 25 years.The most mature of them all my life took a fan-shaped teeth, and only 52, decided to fix it and the treatment went well.Successful treatment requires two basic conditions: a good professional and responsible attitude of the patient.
for harmful microorganisms.Acquired in the course of treating a habit to brush your teeth will protect you from tooth decay.
problem : Visit your orthodontist every 3-4 weeks is necessary to adjust the bracket, and every six months the doctor will carry out professional cleaning of the oral cavity.However ... Now your teeth - under constant medical supervision.When even before you give them so much attention?
If you are too impressed with the list of problems, instill optimism is capable of the fact that the method guarantees 100%-result.Moreover, in addition to the flat teeth you have the chance to buy at least two healthy habits: eat right and spend more time on oral hygiene.Of course, to get the perfect straight teeth have to try to cool.That is why worth venturing the whole story is only with a strong desire or urgent need.But on the other hand, is it really so difficult to fulfill the above conditions?And that is a few months a little discomfort to a lifetime with straight teeth and a big smile?
Cost teeth alignment
We must be prepared to ensure that the treatment of braces will be expensive.The average price in Moscow varies from 800 to 2000 dollars.This high cost is quite reasonable.In the manufacture of modern bracket systems use expensive technology and materials that have exceptional elasticity and a special feature - a shape memory.The price includes services and orthodontist.
need not just dental
Correction of occlusion and correction of anomalous position of individual teeth engaged dentists, orthodontists.Smooth patients teeth - their care, because "o" in Latin means a straight line, "odonto" - a tooth.
Lingual technique more complex than other
bracket system is fixed to the teeth, but not on the outer and inner surface-lingual.Its advantages: absolutely not visible externally.Cons: manufacture and installation of technology such braces is much more complex, so they are 10-15% more expensive, creating a much more noticeable discomfort while eating, brushing teeth, and most importantly, talk.
