Because of the rising living standard, we pay more and more attention to our own health. The most obvious thing is that we pay more attention to our teeth.
many parents will take their children to correct their teeth when they are young. Let’s take a look at the methods of orthodontics
The commonly used orthodontic treatment methods are as follows:
1. General orthodontics:
is the most commonly used orthodontic method, that is, the “iron teeth and steel teeth” treatment method we usually see.
method is to use the adhesive to fix the orthodontic device on the teeth, the patients can’t take it off by themselves, only the orthodontists can take it off and adjust the force It is necessary to have a follow-up visit once a month. The doctors gradually increase the force to make the teeth move to the ideal state of design, and the orthodontic work is basically over.
after removing the appliance, it is necessary to wear a retention device for a period of time to consolidate the orthodontic achievements and prevent recurrence.
In order to solve the problem that the fixed appliance for adults is not beautiful, which affects work and social activities, transparent ceramic brackets are widely used in adult orthodontics.
brackets are made of advanced ceramic materials, which are transparent and not so obvious on teeth.
2. Invisible orthodontics:
The invisible orthodontics is also called lingual orthodontics, which is a method of orthodontic treatment by installing all the appliances on the lingual side of the teeth. The
orthodontic method can not see the appliance outside, and can still carry out normal social and professional activities during the orthodontic treatment. The
unconsciously changes the tooth arrangement and changes the face image.
As soon as this technology was invented, it was warmly welcomed by people in the performing arts, models, teachers, civil servants and other people with high artistic or professional requirements and who love beauty
In recent years, with the continuous development and improvement of lingual orthodontic technology, personalized lingual orthodontic technology has emerged, which is the most advanced technology in lingual orthodontic technology, and also the most popular lingual orthodontic technology in Europe This technology uses CAD / CAM to make the appliance (send the patient’s occlusal model to Germany for processing and making), so the appliance is more accurate, smaller, and less foreign body in the mouth, which greatly improves the comfort of the patient, and uses mechanical hand bending to make the appliance wire, which greatly improves the accuracy and effect of the appliance, and shortens the treatment course .
3. Porcelain rectification:
As the name suggests, porcelain orthodontics is to correct deformed teeth by making porcelain teeth. First, the teeth should be evenly abraded, and then a porcelain crown should be put on
Orthodontics is not only to align teeth, but also the first step of orthodontics. It is more important to adjust good occlusal relationship, maximize masticatory function and stability after orthodontic treatment.
if the teeth that do not need to be pulled out or the normal teeth are narrowed during orthodontics, it will lead to irreversible damage such as tooth gap cannot be closed and tooth caries
patients can’t just see their front teeth arranged in order, so they think it’s a success.
patients should pay attention to whether the related posterior teeth have occlusal disorder, and pay more attention to the functional recovery of the teeth after correction, and their long-term stability
Generally speaking, orthodontics is to arrange the irregular teeth in order.
orthodontics is not a matter of months or even a year or two. After orthodontics, it is necessary to maintain the effect of retainer and fight a long battle. During the orthodontics,
should pay attention to the following points:
Note 1: during orthodontics, it is very important to brush teeth. After some people go to the braces, there are square marks on the teeth, which are not smooth and smooth as before. This is the decalcification caused by poor oral hygiene. After removing the braces, the slight decalcification will be gradually improved through diet. However, if the decalcification is serious, even a small hole will be formed on the teeth, it will not be recovered. Therefore, correct Brushing is very important in orthodontics.
In orthodontics, it’s better to brush teeth with special orthodontic toothbrush or interval brush. The hardness of toothbrush hair is better to be moderately soft. When selecting toothbrush, if you can’t touch it, generally look at the brush hair, the tip of the brush hair is softer than the root part.
in addition, during orthodontics, you can’t brush teeth with vertical brush, but you should use the combination of horizontal brush and circle brush.
Note 2: during orthodontics, it is very important not to “nibble” food. Because it is difficult to brush teeth, children should eat less sticky food, such as rice cakes and other glutinous rice food.
in addition, children should not eat hard food, such as bones, nuts, fried food, etc.
Large pieces of food should be cut into small pieces and sent to the mouth. It’s better not to eat any food that needs to be chewed, such as sugarcane, apple, etc. if you want to eat, you can cut it into pieces. A 6032 a 6032 Cui Shuxia reminded that during orthodontic treatment, the teeth will be slightly loose. At this time, don’t accidentally touch the teeth, such as tableware, sports bump, etc., which will cause pulp necrosis seriously. A 6032 a 6032
Note 3: after orthodontics, we should insist on going through the retention period, saying that orthodontics is “half by doctors, half by ourselves”. It is very important for parents to supervise and cooperate with children. What parents and children are particularly easy to ignore is the stage of wearing retainer after removing the braces Because the maintainer can be removed by children, many children are reluctant to wear it, but the maintainance effect of the maintainer on the orthodontic effect cannot be ignored, because the body muscles, nerves and so on need an adaptive process for the corrected state, if the maintainer is not worn, the possibility of recurrence is relatively high.
It usually takes 24 hours to wear at the beginning, and then it will become shorter and shorter. For example, if you only need to sleep, or wear the retainer the next day, you can have a second visit in half a year
Note 4: different orthotics should be selected according to their indications In addition to the traditional braces, there are transparent braces, ceramic braces, aesthetic steel wires, invisible braces without brackets, lingual orthodontics which can not be seen by outsiders, and self-locking braces that need less time for follow-up. Their comfort has also been significantly improved, and the strength is relatively soft Several times, you can combine your own needs with the advice of a professional doctor to make a choice
