Orthodontic appliance: it is possible to use in the adult phase with good results
Among children and adolescents the use of orthodontic appliance has become fashionable. Orthodontic appliances and the most diverse colored accessories are sold by street vendors and fake professionals without invoice and without manufacturing origin. This material of doubtful quality used only for "aesthetic" questions poses a health risk.
The device installed unplanned and uncontrolled by a qualified professional causes improper tooth movement, may increase misalignment, may lead to reabsorption bone loss irreversibly and the consequences can even lead to tooth loss!
Yes, orthodontic treatment is fashionable, but it is important that it be done by skilled and experienced professionals. It is a health treatment that goes beyond fad and aesthetics.
The result will be perfect when the alignment of the teeth allows the physiological function of the mastication movements to be achieved. It is only in this way that the treatment will provide a beautiful smile, a better function, a better hygienic condition and an aesthetic that goes beyond what the fashion dictates.
A beautiful smile continues over time without sequelae, without periodontal problems, no gingival retraction, no TMJ dysfunction, no headaches ...
Adults have also sought orthodontic treatment. Some with indication in oral rehabilitation, to improve the space in the placement of implants, others to change the slope of the teeth and to recover the original alignment, and others to realize a delayed dream for a long time. was inaccessible to the majority of the population. Today, adults already account for more than half of the office settings.
The difference in treatment between children and adults is bone growth. In childhood the results are more predictable. In adulthood, tooth movement should be slower and with extra care in planning.
Some adults are embarrassed to use the "metallic" smile. There are some alternatives for these patients. One is the so-called aesthetic apparatus, with white brackets. Being able to cost twice the price of the traditional, this option requires more care, because it can be released more easily. The change of the elastics is more frequent, since the transparent elastics stain when in contact with colored foods, like coffee or tomato sauce.
The lingual apparatus is another possibility. Bonded on the back of the teeth, this model has a more difficult adaptation and can affect diction.
Another type of treatment is using transparent acetate serial molds that fit the dental arches. This has the advantage of being withdrawn at some point when the patient did not want to present himself with the device. It is the most expensive treatment and is indicated from subtle smile corrections to more complete orthodontic treatments. It brings excellent results in the treatment of crowded teeth (jagged teeth - one on top of the other), or separate teeth.
Properly applied orthodontics benefit oral health, especially smile, at any age. Trust, transparency, knowledge, ability, success, success ... These are qualities that unite the good professional to your clients and are essential for the result and investment to be rewarding.
