Orthodontics

Orthodontics is a dentistry department dealing with the treatment of malocclusion in children and adults. In addition to improving the appearance and well-being of the patient, properly conducted orthodontic treatment facilitates care for oral hygiene, which in turn leads to a reduction in the number of cavities and an improvement in the condition of the teeth. also dental treatment can eliminate some speech defects, as well as pain associated with temporomandibular joint dysfunction and delay facial aging.

In the case of adult patients with missing teeth, orthodontics allows the occlusion to be improved, which enables subsequent prosthetic or implantological treatment. In children, orthodontic treatment allows to eliminate malocclusion and resulting irregularities - speech defects, caries, facial skeletal disorders.

Orthodontics uses orthodontic appliances to treat malocclusion. Depending on the malocclusion and the patient's age, the doctor may recommend the use of a fixed or mobile apparatus. Removable appliances are intended mainly for children who started treatment during the period of mixed dentition. In some cases, mobile devices can also be used in adult patients, who are often recommended to use more effective fixed devices.

We offer a wide selection of fixed cameras:

  • porcelain
  • metal
  • composite
  • crystal

They differ in zippers, which can be made of the aforementioned materials, as a consequence of which they are more or less visible. We also offer unleaded braces that allow you to achieve a better effect in even less time. Each time the choice of apparatus depends on the patient's expectations and his financial capabilities.

Orthodontics - step by step treatment:

First step

The first stage of treatment in our office is consultation with a specialist, during which the doctor interviews the patient's expectations and needs related to orthodontic treatment. Then diagnostic tests are carried out, after which the orthodontist presents an individual treatment plan taking into account its costs, duration and course.

Step 2

The second stage involves starting treatment and putting on the apparatus. During this visit, the doctor puts on the patient's apparatus and gives instructions on its use.

Step three

Follow-up visits are follow-up visits. Patients with mobile devices come for follow-up visits once every 2-4 months on average. For patients with fixed appliances this period is shorter and ranges from 4 to 6 weeks.

Step four

Termination of treatment occurs when the intended effect is achieved. In the case of permanent braces, after the completion of the proper treatment, retention treatment begins, which is to maintain the target position of the teeth and prevent the recurrence of the defect.
