The most common oral problems that orthodontics corrects are crowding, narrow palate, overbite, open bite, gaps or crossbite, among others.
The classic way of treating orthodontics is with metal brackets, which are firm, resistant, economical and very reliable. But in recent years there has been a huge development in terms of materials in the field of orthodontics, with new options that are a far cry from the less aesthetic braces.
More and more patients are coming to the Bruno Negri Integral Dental Clinic who are concerned about their aesthetics as well as the clinical results, and want their orthodontic treatment to be as subtle as possible. In that case we propose to use ceramic or sapphire brackets, or invisible orthodontics.
In dental appliances whose mission is to correct occlusion or bite problems, braces with rubber bands are used that achieve adequate anchoring of the upper and lower jaw. The rubber bands have different length, position and strength depending on the characteristics of the treatment. It is important to follow the orthodontist’s instructions to carry out its placement correctly for as long as necessary. These rubber bands can be used with different dental braces regardless of the material they are made of.
Each type of braceshas advantages and disadvantages. They are placed on the external face of the tooth and are attached to the arch using elastic ligatures to gradually place the teeth in their ideal position.
Metal braces are the most commonly known. They are recommended in all types of malocclusion or malformation, they are very resistant and the most economical option.
If we want aesthetic braces we can find ceramic braces, sapphire braces or transparent braces, greatly improving the appearance of the treatment. Sapphire is also a very resistant material, although its cost is a little higher.
The braces are usually silver or white, but by changing the elastic bands that hold the arch we can change the color of the brackets to give orthodontics a fun look. Although white braces go more unnoticed and are a very discreet option, colored braces are a success in children’s orthodontics. We can choose different colors each time the rubber bands are changed, creating different combinations.
Antes de colocar los brackets realizamos un estudio individualizado de la boca del paciente con fotografías, radiografías, impresiones digitales y un diagnóstico completo, para determinar cómo se ponen los brackets y los movimientos que hay que generar en un caso en concreto.
For a perfect placement of the braces, the geometric center of each tooth is where each brace will be placed. For a perfect placement of the braces , the geometric center of each tooth is where each brace will be placed.. Then the area will be well isolated so that it is as dry as possible by removing the saliva, and then special positioners are used to place them with the help of special pliers. So on until all the braces are on.
Subsequently, the wires that are made of titanium or steel of the best quality, will be placed. The last step is the placement of the rubber bands, helping theteethto move until they achieve their proper position.
