Bite correction and tooth alignment
Bite correction is a well-known and very sore subject in both adults and children. For most of us, this procedure is associated with eerie mechanisms and ugly plates that cause children to suffer from ridicule by their peers, and for adults they just cause inconvenience.
Why is bite corrected?
Do you think it's worth correcting the wrong bite? Of course, it’s worth it - since this violation can cause aesthetic discomfort and illness. Speaking in more detail, a wrong bite:
- It can cause premature tooth loss due to improper disproportionate chewing load on the entire dentition of the patient.
- It can cause the development of diseases - for example, gingivitis, periodontitis, due to the inability to clean the oral cavity well between the interdental spaces due to crowding of teeth, improper location in the dentition.
Can cause psychological problems: isolation among peers at school, and as a result poor performance and impaired communicative function in adolescence.
Children's health, the health of their dentition, and as a result, their success in life is in your hands - in the hands of parents! It is important to bring your child to the pediatric dentist's clinic at the SNK Dentistry clinic on Timiryazevskaya, and our doctor will teach you and tell you what to look for in the development of the correct bite of your child.
In children under 10 years of age in removable bite, instead of braces, the use of removable plates is more often possible. And it is very important not to miss this stage in the development of the correct bite. At such a young age, there are fewer requirements for aesthetics, and records show this is the best time to act. In addition to correcting the position of the teeth, they normalize the work of the jaw muscles, contribute to the proper development of the jaw bones, and sometimes at this stage the orthodontic treatment of our small patients and your children may be a much quicker fix. This is the integral advantage in the economic component of orthodontic treatment.
How does correcting malocclusion occur?
Correction of the wrong bite is quite simple - with the help of modern bracket systems. These bracket systems can be:
Regardless of the type of bracket you choose, correcting a bite usually consists of several steps.
- First, the patient comes to the SNK Dental Clinic Dentistry, where the orthodontist examines, interviews the patient and parents, makes diagnostic models, the patient is sent for an X-ray examination: OPTG and TRG studies. Based on these diagnostic studies and the calculations made in a computer program, the doctor determines the diagnosis and draws up a treatment plan for the patient. At the second consultation, the doctor introduces the parent and the child with a treatment plan for correcting the occlusion, choosing braces. The parent of the minor child agrees to medical manipulations.
- After - the selected bracket system is installed. Its installation is painless and fast enough. Usually first on one jaw, a month later on another.
- After installing the braces, the patient will need to visit the orthodontist to control the process and regulate (braces tightening). By the way, when choosing self-ligating braces, the number of visits will be minimized, since only this bracket system requires minimal control by a doctor.
- After a certain time (usually it takes at least one and a half years to correct the occlusion), the doctor removes the braces and you can enjoy a full life and perfect teeth.
There is nothing wrong with the bite correction procedure - it is painless and rather quick. At the same time, while wearing braces, you can not only correct the bite, but also look attractive - especially if sapphire or ceramic braces are selected. All of these bracket systems are almost invisible to others - and, therefore, you can combine everyday life with a dental procedure.
Think bite correction is only available to children and teens?
You can correct the wrong bite at any age! This was confirmed by numerous studies, and the experience of our patients in the clinic SNK Dentistry on Timiryazevskaya.
For each age, it is recommended to use certain braces. They regulate both the time of the procedure and its effectiveness. For example, for children under 16 years old, you can choose any braces - from metal to lingual. At a more mature age, you should pay attention to self-ligating braces - their functional features allow you to get the best result in a relatively short time.
To summarize, you can see that bite treatment is not the worst procedure. Therefore, do not wait until health problems or complexes take over - just contact our clinic.
Installation of braces requires the consultation of an orthodontist and an experienced specialist. The clinic SNK Dentistry created all the conditions for such manipulations. Your health is our responsibility!
Installing braces takes about an hour and a half. Teeth are professionally cleaned, washed, dried, etched with antiseptics, washed and dried again. Then apply a primer and adhesive - glue to fix the pads. Braces fix, remove excess glue and polymerize it with powerful light radiation.
The dentist is actively working with forceps, squeezing the pliable areas of the metal and closing the locks. There will be no pain, but clicking sounds and jolts can be unpleasant. It is better to come to the office of the SNK Dentistry clinic on Timiryazevskaya in a good mood and relax properly. You can ask to turn on pleasant music or take a player with headphones with you.
How long do braces wear?
As a rule, from one and a half to three years. The patient should tune in to long-term treatment. It is better to treat braces as decoration, and to find aesthetic meaning in their wearing. Then there will be no psychological discomfort.
It is clear that it is more pleasant to wear objectively beautiful braces. If the means allow or the appearance is very important for the patient, you can order braces that are not inferior to jewelry. Sapphires are just one of the design options.
The first signs of bite improvement appear 3-4 months after the installation of braces. But they can’t be removed, the teeth are still unstable in the new position, and they will easily return to the previous wrong position. The patient is regularly shown to the dentist, constant monitoring by a specialist of the condition of the dentition is necessary.
When wearing braces, special care for the oral cavity is required. To brush your teeth, use a special brush. Clean thoroughly, but carefully, after each meal. You have to exclude solid foods from the diet: nuts, hard vegetables and fruits. You can grate carrots or apples, grind in a blender. It is better to use less hot and cold, as well as sweets, which cause increased growth of bacteria in the mouth. Temperature changes lead to compression and expansion of crowns. Microbes can cause tooth decay, and braces will have to be removed prematurely to treat it.
In some patients, braces are too painful, especially soon after installation. If there are no objective signs of bleeding, damage to teeth or gums, pain medication helps eliminate pain. Long-term and persistent individual hypersensitivity may be an indication for braces and other correction methods. A sensitive patient should warn the doctor in advance about the possible consequences.
Treatment of abnormalities of the position of the teeth with mouth guards (elayner)
In adults, the alternative to braces is transparent removable mouth guards.
Eliners are made of polymers with the optimal combination of stiffness and ductility for this purpose. They are put on several adjacent teeth, most often on the entire dentition. Mouthguards are worn almost round the clock, removing for eating and brushing your teeth.
Advantages of mouth guards:
- Easy to remove;
- Invisible from the outside;
- Safe for children;
- Quick addiction;
- Diction is preserved;
- Mucous membranes are not injured;
- Tooth enamel is not damaged.
Disadvantages of eliners:Only suitable for abnormal tooth position in the dentition;
Mouthguards exert weak pressure on the teeth; they cannot correct defects such as the rotation of the crown around the axis. But in simple cases, patients are more comfortable wearing them than braces.
One of the best-selling and at the same time working systems of aligners in Russia is Invisalign® - it is always a predicted result. The Invisalign® Eliner System is a patented product of the American company AlignTechnology and has existed since 1998.
Invisalign® is the only system in the world that is manufactured in one factory using high-tech equipment and innovative technologies. At the same time, most other orthodontic mouth guards are made in a conventional dental laboratory.
Thanks to the technological production, the use of unique materials, as well as the powerful research base, the Invisalign® mouthguards are not only aesthetic and comfortable to wear, but also have the same high degree of efficiency as bracket systems.
Using a computer program, the doctor in the SNK clinic Dentistry on Timiryazevskaya will show you the result of treatment before it even begins. In 3D, you will see how and in what time the teeth will move, as well as how your smile will look at the end of treatment with the eliners.
No matter how badly your teeth are crooked. If they can be aligned with braces, then the eliners will be able to do it. Almost any orthodontic task can be easily solved with the help of the Inviseline line.
In order for Invisalign® Eliner treatment to be effective, it’s important to choose an experienced doctor.
Orthodontists of our clinic SNK DENTISTRY will help to understand and choose the most effective method of treating violations of the position of the teeth: bracket system or aligners. Your health is in our competence!
