Types of orthodontic

Conventional orthodontics is one in which the equipment or brackets and wires are in the visible face of the teeth.

The invisible braces can be of two types: lingual orthodontics and plastic orthodontic. The lingual brackets and wires carries as conventional. What makes it special is that the brackets are placed on the inside of the teeth, inside, so unseen.

However does not carry the plastic orthodontic brackets or wires, but an apparatus of a transparent plastic material surrounding the upper teeth and one which surrounds the lower. These appliances, called aligners will change every two or three weeks for others that are a little different. So, gradually, they are producing tooth movements.


Braces which to choose?

The orthodontic brackets can be used in all cases, but plastic orthodontic aligners has some limitations, especially in cases where a tooth must be removed because they lack space.

It is the orthodontist, who is familiar with this technique, who must make the diagnosis and see which are the most suitable equipment.

Orthodontics plastic has many advantages because the aligners are hardly seen and be removed from the mouth to eat and brush your teeth with which you can eat everything and dental hygiene is easier and more effective than with brackets. Also they not occur sores in the mouth, frequent treatments wires.


Invisible orthodontics, results

For the device to have its effect must be worn all day (except during meals). Therefore, the evolution of the treatment depends entirely on the cooperation of the patient. If you do not take all day treatment does not advance.

Some dental movements are more difficult to achieve with aligners, which the orthodontist must assess whether this treatment is indicated in each case.
