The beautiful, symmetrical denture is not just the sign of health but gives the patient self-confidence. It has been proven that improvements in personal appearance contribute to greater mental and physical well-being. Our mission is to help you feel great about your smile - which is "available" for anyone due to the modern orthodontics.
Orthodontics is a type of dentistry that aims to improve the appearance, position and function of crooked or abnormally arranged teeth, provides a beautiful smile, ensures the perfect functioning of the dentures, chewing, swallowing and talking. You may need orthodontic treatment if your teeth or jaw do not develop in a normal way. In some cases, abnormal development of the teeth and jaw can affect the shape of the face. During the process of orthodontics the endognathion, the gaps between the teeth and the abnormal position of the jaws are corrected, so as to reach the perfect bite and clear talking.
Time duration of orthodontics
If worn correctly, you are likely to achieve good results usually within 1.5-2.5 years so the clients are required to be patient. Regular visits (every 2-8 weeks) are necessary to observe the process, during orthodontics.
Children and orthodontics
The treatment of children and fitting children's braces is a special case because they are still growing. We recommend that a child's first visit to an orthodondist specialist takes place no later than age 6-7 if an orthodontic problem is detected, which can be developed due to bad habits e.g. finger sucking. We have many years experience in providing children's braces and orthodontics for children specialising in the particular needs and concerns of young people.
In special cases extraction of baby teeth can be required, so as to avoid endognathion and to provide places for the rest of the teeth. In cases of severe endognathion the rest of the teeth move into position after the extraction.
Adults and orthodonticss
It is never late! Orthodontics can be started at any age, no age limit. It is recommended to fix the teeth or jaws which have not developed in a normal way, even for years or decades, so as to repair the optimal position and give our teeth a good chance to serve us for a long time. The practice of orthodontics achieves facial balance for a lifetime of beautiful healthy smiles. Creating a beautiful smile through orthodontics is a reliable way of improving the health of your teeth as well as your self-esteem.
Maintenance of braces
In case of fixed braces, the key word is brushing the teeth.
Proper oral hygiene has a key role at successful orthodontics. The adhesive process is not successful in case of inflamed gums, but which is even more important: moving the teeth in a diseased gum causes more harm than benefits. Special toothbrushes are available for those who wear braces, just as interdental brushes which clean the arch between the teeth and the brace. Dental floss can be also used.
We require our clients to take part on a dentalhygiene process, every three months. Hard foods should be avoided as they can break the brace.
In case of removable braces, the key words are thorough cleaning and storage.
These braces are made of plastic, it is recommended to clean them with a toothbrush, at least once a day. The removable brace should be soaked in a glass of water, when it is not in use.
Aesthetic fixed braces
Classic fixed braces have two main components: the brackets and the main archwire that connects them. Each bracket is a tiny piece of metal and ceramic that is precisely engineered and shaped. Orthondontics can be started at any age.
Invisible braces (lingual technique)
In-line braces are bonded to the surface of the teeth facing the inside of the mouth so they are concealed and almost invisible to the observer. This is an invisible way to straighten teeth using a series of custom-made, nearly undetectable aligners. It became popular in the last 5-6 years.
Features of in-line braces
- Invisible braces do not affect the tongue or speech. However, you have to get used to it, which normally happens in 10-12 days.
- Producing the brace takes about 1-2 months. The reason is the delicate productive process which is necessary for the perfect result.
- If molars are involved, adjusting the delicate settings can be rather complicated. Therefore the treatment and the time you spend at the dentist can be longer comparing to the traditional braces, but it will vary from case to case.
