Orthodontic appliances and plates
Orthodontic appliances and plates are specialized designs that are used to correct the position of the teeth, as well as the occlusion in children and adults. It should be noted that various techniques are used to straighten teeth. They can be understood as correction using braces or Invisalign aligners. Also, traditional plates and special orthodontic appliances are used, which can be recommended for both children and adults. The plates are effective in the case of gaps between the teeth, as well as in the case of an irregular dentition, or curvature of the teeth. Note that the most suitable technique is selected individually by an orthodontist after the patient has been diagnosed.
Types of orthodontic plates
Today there are two main types of devices used to straighten teeth. They mean removable and non-removable structures. It should be said that removable devices are recommended to be used during the period of development of the dentition. Such constructions can be single-jawed. In addition, they are attached to both jaws with various elements to align the teeth.
In order to achieve the desired result, it is recommended to wear plates and devices for two years. If necessary, they are replaced every six months. The exact duration of treatment is determined by the orthodontist based on the diagnostic study, the complexity of the existing defects, as well as the individual characteristics of the patient.
Devices designed for teeth straightening are manufactured individually, based on the impression of the patient's teeth, as well as X-ray data. They allow you to exactly repeat the relief of the gums and teeth, which affects the quick addiction. You can get used to the records in just a couple of days. Note that before bite correction, it is necessary to treat caries and other diseases. It is important enough to follow the recommendations of your doctor.
Among the main advantages of using orthodontic dental plates for teeth are:
- Possibility of quick production, based on tooth impressions.
- Correction of serious malocclusion during the growth of the child.
- No complications in daily oral hygiene.
