Correct teeth ratio of the upper and lower jaws is the key not only to an aesthetically attractive smile, but also to the optimal functioning of the dental system as a whole, which allows you to keep your teeth healthy for as long as possible.
Specialists from the Da Vinci Dental Clinic successfully treat the most difficult occlusion problems. Depending on the indications, orthodontists use special orthodontic appliances, braces, splints, micro implants as a temporary point of resistance when moving teeth, plates and oral gymnastics as a way to prevent and treat pathologies in the early stages.
Aligners are transparent splints to restore the bite - a 100% viable alternative to braces. Invisalign splints are made individually for you. They are aesthetic and almost invisible on teeth because they are completely transparent and comfortable, tasteless and odorless) With them you can take full care of the oral cavity and lead an active social life without feeling discomfort.
Unlike braces, aligners do not restrict your diet. With them you can eat apples, steaks, favorite dishes without discomfort after eating them.
The quality of the conversation with aligners is normalized in 2 weeks. Instead, there is a slight pressure, but without sharp pain.
How do Invisalign aligners work
The force of teeth movement by Invisalign splints is smaller and clearly dosed. In each splint the movement of a certain tooth is planned not more than on 0,25 mm. In aligners, the teeth do not move all together, but only those that are needed, it keeps the tissues surrounding the tooth in a more stable state.
The patient self-activates the aligner by changing the splint once a week, visiting the doctor every 3 months to monitor or make corrective actions for the treatment.
Aligners work faster, as the splint covers the entire surface of the tooth and gives it the only correct trajectory (the tooth in aligners moves only where the free space is available), preventing any complications. At the beginning of treatment, the patient already sees the end result of the position of the teeth.
Treatment of bite pathologies with a brace system
Treatment of dental pathologies with a brace system is preceded by complex diagnostics and difficult planning. Before starting treatment, both the orthodontist and the patient clearly understand the stages and determine the end result. The patient undergoes rehabilitation (mandatory preventive oral hygiene), treats all teeth affected by the carious process, if necessary, removal of damaged teeth or third molars, restoration of teeth with photopolymer or temporary plastic crowns, as a temporary alternative to ceramic restorations.
First, we perform a photo protocol, decipher the TRG (calculate the position of the teeth relative to the main bone landmarks of the skull), take impressions for diagnostic models and plan in detail the stages of teeth movement.
Bite pathologies for adults over time lead to overload and destruction of teeth. Treatment with braces for such cases often ends with orthopedic restoration of anatomy and occlusion height.
Starting treatment in adolescence, when the tooth tissue is still preserved, allows you to restore proper occlusion without any replacement.
Retention (maintaining a stable result) occurs due to physiologically correct placement of teeth.
The difference between brace system and aligners
Unlike aligners, which are often lost or forgotten, the brace system is always with you, although they require more careful maintenance.
The duration of wearing braces depends on the choice of the system itself, the complexity of dental pathology and the degree of damage to the temporomandibular joint.
