Orthodontics

With orthodontic treatment, the teeth are properly placed on the jawbone, while the pain in the joints, head, neck or other organs resulting from closure disorders disappears.

By giving the person full chewing function, problems with the digestive system such as stomach problems are lost.

It is not possible to completely clean teeth that have a defect in their position (back and forth, or lying on their side). Teeth that cannot be completely cleaned. Orthodontics allows you to care for your teeth better while ordering your teeth, thus reducing the risk of caries.

Orthodontic Treatment Methods

There are basically two kinds of orthodontic treatment methods. There are mobile devices that one can attach and remove, and fixed devices attached to the teeth by the doctor. These can be divided into sub-groups. For example, mobile devices may be for therapeutic or post-treatment reinforcement.

Fixed devices can be roughly separated as wires attached from the back surface of the tooth, metal and aesthetic wires attached from the front surface. Everyone's problems and expectations are separate. It is necessary to determine the most appropriate treatment for the patient. Materials and treatment types vary.

As the age of treatment varies from person to person, the duration of treatment varies according to the character of the problem. The shortest duration of treatment is 6 months. Treatments lasting 1-2 years are the majority. There may be treatments that last for 3-4 years. In some special cases the treatment period is extended. Like cleft lip and palate. It is certainly not a painful procedure. During the first one or two weeks, there may be some minor problems with getting used to it. In addition, the patient maintains a normal life by paying close attention to what he eats. Once a month, you need to see the doctor to check and adjust.

Bracket Usage

You can choose from metal, ceramic and plastic brackets. But orthodontic treatment is usually done using a stainless steel bracket. Ceramic and plastic brackets are generally preferred for aesthetic reasons, but plastic brackets may be stained and discolored at the end of the treatment. In the case of brackets made of plastic or ceramic, the treatment time may be extended as there is more friction between the wires and the bracket. Your orthodontist will share possible options with you.

The brackets work by applying pressure to push the tooth in the desired direction. They are used between 1-3 years on average. Adjustments are required as the teeth move during treatment. In the past, the brackets consisted of thick steel bands covering the perimeter of the tooth. With the new developments, the brackets have become smaller and orthodontic bands are rarely used.

When attaching braces, your orthodontist dentist will install tiny brackets on your tooth using special adhesives. The wires then pass through these brackets called spring wires. These spring wires provide a certain direction in the direction in which the teeth move. Small elastic bands called ligature can be used to connect the spring wires to the brackets and the patient can choose a different color at each visit.
