Only few people are lucky enough to have a faultless dental arch, that is, a perfect set of teeth. Correction of the teeth may become necessary as early as in childhood, when secondary dentition starts. Crowded teeth are difficult to clean, they tend to decay and are unaesthetic. The simple fact that erupting permanent teeth take more place than milk teeth may lead to deformities, besides, thumb sucking and other bad habits are also important factors. When quitting these habits is not enough, orthodontical treatmnet is needed. The sooner the treatment is started, the better chances we have – a young body reacts better and adapts more easily. In the cases of a mixed set of teeth, the little patient is advised to wear removable plates, which can be in the mouth at night or day and night, depending on degree of the alteration to correct. A modified version of this removable instrument – invisible brace, with transparent splints is used in adolescents and adults. The dental arch contain only permanent teeth in that age, and requires minor corrections. When the teeth have changed , fixed instruments are applicable. These ones are accessible not only made from metal, as ordinary, but also made from porcelain, being more aesthetic. They can be used on the external surface of the dental arch, but you can ask for the more developed, invisible ones, fixed internally. These instruments should be checked regularly, so that the dentist can set the necessary adjustments. Self-ligating orthodontic brackets require less checkings. With less effort but more efficacy they move the tooth into the right position. The treatment takes a shorter period of time and wearing a self-ligating instrument is comfortable and aesthetic. As there are no two identical sets of teeth, periods of orthodontic treatments differ, but in general, every patient can have a smile to be be envied in 12-24 months.
Which can be heritedery, but also may come from several bad habits and orthodontic treatments started at undue age. Today, orthodontic treatment can successfully applied in adults. It has a growing popularity among adults due to the porcelain brackets of different types, which make the instruments practically invisible. However, it is important to know, that an orthodontic treatment is not an aesthetic or cosmetic procedure in the first place. The primary aim is to get or restore efficient chewing and proper articulation - because an abnormal set of teeth may have a bad influance on chewing, speaking and on facial expression, and it may even lead to to premature tooth lost. Of course, a smart smile cannot be ignored, when judging the final result. Today, a variety of fixed and removable instruments are availible, from which the best type can be chosen individually to start the treatment with. Regular checking and adjustment is important during the course of every orthodontic treatment, especially when appliyng fixed instruments (usually in 4-5 weeks). This way, they can have a continuous effect.
