WHAT IS ORTHODONTICS AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
Orthodontics is a part of dentistry that deals with correcting growth disorders and tooth position. Treatment of such tooth position deformities is best done in childhood, although it can be done in adults. The procedure is not as long as the process of returning to the correct position, but it can be complicated and require the expertise and experience of an orthodontist, a doctor who deals with the specified branch of dentistry.
After 35 years of successful completion of complex dental work, we have decided that it is time to intensify our business in the field of implantology, aesthetic dentistry and orthodontics, as one of the branches of dentistry that are considered to be more complicated. We are ready to offer all services and take up all the tasks in order to preserve and improve patients’ smiles.
A fixed denture or fixed orthodontic appliance is fixed to the teeth and requires healthy or completely remedied teeth and soft tissues of the patient. Therapy lasts on average one and a half years, depending on the severity of the case. After removing the fixed apparatus, the patient should wear retention foils to maintain results. There are fixed dentures with metal and non-metal locks.
Active appliances are mobile appliances for correcting orthodontic irregularities in children with mixed dentition – ie. In school-age children, successful therapy requires the cooperation of the patient and the parents, since the patient (the child) takes them off and puts them on. The controls are for a month.
Lingual fixed apparatus
Lingual orthodontics is the straightening of the tooth with the help of a fixed appliance that adheres to the inside of the tooth, which means that it is invisible. This is sometimes the deciding factor why this technology is used mainly in the treatment of adult patients. As with other methods, the period of wearing the apparatus varies from patient to patient.
TEETH CORRECTION FOILS
By constantly wearing the foil, a continuous pressure is applied to the teeth, which causes the teeth to move. The exact number of films that change over a period of time (one month, two months, and the like) depends on the weight of the malposition, the number of teeth that will be included in therapy, and how these teeth move during therapy.
This method is very effective, and importantly it is not invasive to the patient. The foils are very comfortable to wear and do not cause problems when speaking or chewing. The advantage is that they can be removed from the mouth so they are excellent for maintaining hygiene and nutrition. On the aesthetic side, they represent the most comfortable solution for tooth correction.
