Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that deals with the correction of malposition of teeth and improper mutual position of the upper and lower jaws, during growth and their development but even after that period.
In addition to the beautiful look (aesthetics), it is also important that the masticatory system functions as better as possible, because it effects the normal functioning of the entire human organism. If there is a correct position of teeth, then, it surely ensures functioning of the entire dental systems and, at the same time, reduces a possibility of the individual tooth load.
Common Orthodontic Treatments:
- Reverse Bite
- Class III Malocclusion
Depending on the established anomalies or diagnosis as well as the age of the patient, there are various mobile and fixed braces used for a proper orthodontic treatment.
Removable Braces are the ones that can be removed from the mouth, and they are made for each patient individually. They can be worn only when the patient has baby teeth.
The moment when a patient loses his last baby tooth, his teeth can be corrected only non-removable braces (attached to the teeth), and it can be removed only by an orthodontist.
This kind of therapy is the first phase of treatment, used in the time of intensive growth of a child. These braces are used for adjusting the jaws, while non-removable braces give better results at solving individual – teeth problem.
A patient can deal with removable braces on his own.
Unlike removable, Non-Removable Braces are worn continuously, and can be put away from the mouth only by an orthodontist.
There are different methods of installing Non-Removable Braces, so that if we do not want them to be seen during conversation, they can be placed on the back of the jaws. These braces remain permanently on the teeth, until the end of orthodontic treatment.
