Beautiful and healthy teeth are not only an aesthetic part of your appearance. Even if you're not looking for perfectly smooth teeth to smile like a movie star, it's worth considering bite correction just for the health of your whole body.
It has been scientifically proven that even minor bite abnormalities affect the entire dentition system, the gastrointestinal tract and can also lead to headaches.
Bracket systems are used to restore a smooth line of teeth, also known as braces.
Reasons for the wrong bite:
The most common causes are incorrect tooth growth and tooth movement after removal of a tooth. This is especially true in childhood when removing milk teeth.
A child's body from 3 to 12 years of age develops very quickly. Not only the teeth grow, but also the entire jaw. This is the period and carries the greatest risks.
If you have not followed a baby tooth and it has to be extracted, very moving baby teeth, along with a rapidly growing jaw, begin to take up the space available. The entire jaw line is displaced and the place where another root tooth was to appear is either occupied or deformed. As a result, problems in the right bite are very likely to occur.
How can you prevent the wrong bite from happening?
The easiest way to prevent a problem is to solve it heroically.
That's why we recommend preventive checkups and professional hygiene for babies every 6 months.
Why is that? A child is not yet able to brush his or her milk teeth properly, and adults do not always treat this issue with due attention. However, healthy baby teeth are the key to proper development of the primary teeth and should not be neglected.
If the bite correction issue does arise.
The correction of dental anomalies is an individual process. The most effective method is determined by the doctor using special diagnostic methods. If we talk about age, the ideal time while the teeth are still growing. At this time, they are the most adaptable to correction and are well mobile. Braces can be used from the age of 9-10 years, and ideally from 12-13 years. It all depends on the individual development of the child and his tooth row.
Bite correction is a long process, but gives excellent results not only in adolescence. Even after the formation of a permanent bite, correcting defects in the tooth row can also be effective.
Depending on the individual indications, braces are worn from a year to two and a half years. And after their removal, it will take the same amount of time to fix the result with the help of a retention device - a removable device, which should be worn for 12-14 hours a day. During the treatment period, you should visit an orthodontist every three to four weeks.
Nuances of wearing braces:
- Avoid hard and viscous food to avoid unnecessary effects on braces.
- More thorough teeth cleaning. Braces will make it difficult to access part of the tooth surface, and keeping your teeth clean and healthy is essential.
- You'll have to get used to braces for the first few weeks.
But it's a small inconvenience for a radiant smile of health and beauty. Especially since it takes about two years to fix a bite, and you will enjoy a radiant smile for life!
What kind of braces do you have?
Braces can be of different types, and can be made of metal, ceramics, plastic and even sapphire. Sapphire cut in a special way refracts the light, and therefore braces (unlike metal and plastic) are almost invisible, do not cause discomfort in the mouth and do not disturb the diction.
Before installing the braces:
The first step is to consult with your orthodontist, who will give you recommendations tailored to your individual needs. As a result, you will be able to make an informed decision.
The next step is obligatory to perform dental treatment and hygiene in order to prevent caries development while wearing braces.
