Teeth Braces

Explained

Dental braces are a way of straightening or moving your teeth, to improve how they look and how they work. Braces can also help you look after the long-term health of your teeth and gums and make eating more comfortable, by spreading the biting pressure across all your teeth.

The best time to have braces is generally during childhood. But adults can have orthodontic treatment too – and more and more are doing this. Age is less important than having healthy teeth and gums. Children may have to wait for enough teeth to come through before starting treatment.

It is important that your mouth is fit and healthy before you have orthodontic treatment. Some patients can’t have orthodontic treatment – for example, if they have advanced gum disease. Only an orthodontist can decide whether you are able to have orthodontics.

No, there are many benefits that come with orthodontic treatment.

Orthodontic treatment will straighten your teeth or move them into a better position. This not only improves their appearance and the way the teeth bite together but can also make them easier to clean.

Some people have teeth that stick out. These teeth can be moved back into line (inside the lips) and this can protect them and help keep them clean.

Crooked and crowded teeth can be hard to keep clean. Making them straight can mean they are easier to clean.

Why is Dental Braces

Used for?

Sometimes braces are used as the end treatment of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) therapy. Problems of TMJ are usually aggravated by the lower jaw being positioned too far back so that the blood vessels and nerves of the TMJ are compressed. TMJ splint therapy is used initially to relieve this pressure and to reduce pain. The splint actually moves the lower jaw to a new position. If the patient does not want to wear a splint for the rest of his/her life, then the teeth must be moved to stabilize the jaws in this new position. This movement of teeth can be done by dental braces.

Orthodontic appliances can also be used to help a child overcome the infantile habits of sucking a thumb, finger, or pacifier. Sucking habits are usually not a major concern unless they are perpetuated after age 6 or 7, when the permanent incisors and molars start to erupt into the mouth. If these habits persist in the presence of permanent teeth, then permanent changes in the teeth and jaw bones are produced. Sucking habits can create open bites where the upper and lower front teeth do not meet. They can lead to protrusive teeth and upper lips and protrusive- looking faces in general. Excessive sucking causes the muscles of the cheeks to constrict the upper dental arch. This contributes to a loss of space for the tongue to rest, and subsequent abnormal tongue posture or tongue thrusting habits. Sucking also causes the maxillary sinuses to constrict, which aggravates breathing and allergy problems.

A variety of devices is used for different age groups. Some devices are only for infants to treat congenital defects such as cleft palates. Others are utilized only on baby teeth or in children who have both baby and permanent teeth (mixed dentition). Still others are employed when all the permanent teeth have erupted. Some orthodontic appliances used in children are actually orthopedic devices that redirect jaw bone growth.

Other dental problems can affect the success of tooth whitening. For example, cavities need to be treated before teeth are whitened. That’s because the whitening solution can pass through decayed areas and reach the inner parts of the tooth. If your gums have receded, the exposed roots of your teeth may appear yellow or discolored. Whitening products will not make them whiter.

If you have tooth decay or receding gums, whitening may make your teeth sensitive. Whitening also does not work on ceramic or porcelain crowns or veneers.

Dental Braces Preparation &

How it's being done

In the first appointment, which is the first examination phase, the orthodontist will determine whether you need orthodontic treatment by conducting a detailed orthodontic examination and obtain information about how long your possible treatment will take and the cost.

Before starting orthodontic treatment, it is extremely important that you do not have decayed teeth or bleeding gums in your mouth. Before starting the orthodontist treatment of the patient, it is recommended that your dentist has all your fillings and tartar cleaning done.

It is not possible to attach brackets or appliances to patients who have poor hygiene for the mouth or whose gums bleed during brushing.

If the necessary conditions are available for you to have orthodontic treatment, the second stage, which is the planning stage, starts after the examination stage. At this stage.
– Oral and external photos
– Upper and lower jaw sizes
– Lateral cephalometric film,
– Hand and wrist film,
– If necessary, necessary records and data such as anterior and posterior head (postero-anterior) film are collected.

In the light of all these data, the orthodontist makes an appointment for that day or another date and the treatment process is planned. At this point, it is extremely important to assist and participate in the orthodontist.

After the examination and planning stages, the treatment phase begins. This treatment is not a painful treatment, but pain may occur within a few hours after treatment.

If the bracket is a treatment, the treatment is usually started from the upper jaw and passed to the lower jaw after a few sessions.

When the treatment is started, one or more molars are passed to your teeth according to the orthodontist’s own preference.

Then the brackets are attached, respectively. After the brackets are attached, the arc wires are attached.

Arc wires are attached to brackets with small ligature wires or elastic ligatures.
As of all these procedures, orthodontic treatment begins. Then, the process continues with reinforcement therapy and regular controls.

It should be forgotten that, in this process, the doctor’s advice on how to eat and what to pay attention to should be followed strictly.
