Orthodontic treatment can be helpful even at the age of three. Defects that are detected early can often be treated by myofunctional exercises. Early loss of milk teeth can lead to a lack of sufficient space for eruption of the permanent teeth. Using retainer in these cases may prevent further improper alignment of the teeth. It can therefore take timely and effective measures by which subsequent orthodontic treatment will be avoided or shortened.
During the replacement of milk teeth removable appliances of colored plastic are most commonly used. Using these devices can affect the growth of the jaw and facial muscle tone and improve the bite. The correct development of the jaw can prevent aggregation of the erupting permanent teeth and prevent the need for subsequent extraction due to lack of space.
After all the permanent teeth erupt, the main development of the jaws ends as well. Hereinafter it is more difficult to influence the growth of the jaws, therefore what is mainly treated is the position of the teeth. During this period, treatment is carried out with fixed appliances (braces).
Damon Q brackets are passive self-ligation brackets. Their uniqueness is in the way they keep the arch – using a special slide mechanism. Because of this, friction between bow and brackets is minimized, allowing for a quick and comfortable movement of the teeth. Passive self-ligation brackets use weak, biologically tolerable forces, thereby reducing the treatment period, and allow implementation of orthodontic treatment without extraction of teeth in order to free space.
Appearance is very important for adults during the orthodontic treatment.In order for the treatment to be more discreet and unnoticeable to others, you can use ceramic brackets that are close to the color of your teeth. Damon Clear braces have all the advantages of passive self-ligation braces, while the aesthetics is not affected greatly.
The individual Insignia are designed brackets, bends and positioners for each tooth. Hi-res scans a dental imprint of your teeth and creates a virtual 3D model. Special software integrates these precise images to calculate the optimal bite and makes 3D visualization of the desired outcome. In each bracket information with how many degrees and in which direction to move the respective tooth is embedded. Made arcs depending on the patient’s anatomy, and the treatment plan. The exact location of bonding brackets is calculated and special positioners on teeth are used to be glued.
The treatment with OrthoCaps is one of the best – in modern orthodontics. It is performed with transparent, almost invisible, removable braces (alayners). After initial examination teeth imprints are scanned and converted in 3D computer model of your teeth. On it you can see virtual moving teeth, the outcome and duration of the treatment. After it has been approved by the dentist and the patient, a series of buses are prepared for carry out the treatment. Each subsequent alayner moves your teeth little by little, week after week for their final position.
In some severe distortions in the bite a combination of orthodontic and surgical treatment is required. These are cases of skeletal malformations, which can be influenced only by orthodontic treatment, but surgery is also needed. The treatment consists of three phases. In the first (pre- surgery phase) the teeth are arranged and the shape of dental arches is corrected using specific orthodontic apparatus. Then by orthognathic surgery the jaw moves to the correct bite. In the third, post-surgical, phase the bite is further adjusted.
To achieve good and long-lasting prosthetic treatment the position of the defect adjacent teeth and bite as a whole should be taken into account. In many cases, orthodontic treatment before surgery may allow placement of an implant or bridge in places where it would not be possible without this preliminary training.
