To establish a bracing process through each stage, the orthodontist should have all the important information. In such a plan, it is necessary to determine in detail the change of the teeth through each stage, the degree of teeth movement and the direction of teeth shifting, whether it is favorable for the patient or not. Having the treatment plan the completion time and the final results will be expected.
The process of getting braces
Braces are a solution to overcome the condition of overbite, underbite, excessive spacing or crowding. After braces you will have a perfect smile, and more confident. The braces can timely help the jaw bone in harmony and shorten treatment time. The procedure of braces is as follows:
Step 1: Consultation and examination
The patient will be consulted prior to the examination, radiography, collection of personal information, medical and dental history.
Step 2: Take a sample, take a picture of your teeth
After examining the general condition of the patient's oral health, radiography will be performed and the condition of the jaw bone structure will be examined. Then the patients will be advised the types of braces which adapt the jaw bone structure and teeth of each person. After clinical analysis, the appropriate treatments will be chosen based on this result and the goal to be achieved after the orthopedic.
After completing the analysis of the film, the sample of the teeth will be conducted, important information will be collected, it is necessary for the treatment. This is a significant stage because based on this model, the dentist will select the most appropriate applicants with the patient, which is an important determinant of braces.
Step 3: Make the treatment plan
To predict the growth and development of the skull system (in children) takes the panorama film, cephalogram (two-dimensional projection of the skull), and the hand bone.
The role of cephalogram in the brace treatment is very important, helping the doctor:
- Observe the cranial - facial - teeth system.
- Research on the development of the cranial-facial system.
- Analyze, diagnose, make the treatment plan, and predict a result.
- Analyze the treatment process.
- Analyze the growth process.
- Analysis of relapse and changes after treatment.
The dentist will gather necessary information and incorporate braces software to help identify and determine the timing of early orthodontic treatment in children to limit tooth extraction and maxillary surgery when the skull system has passed the development stage.
For adults, the doctor also makes a treatment plan with the expected force and movement rate of the teeth at each stage, anticipating the difficulty, or risk for timely treatment. The data on the software indicates the proper direction and traction appropriately. In particular, the braces is to create the aesthetic appearance of the face to have the most perfect results for patients after treatment.
Step 4: Placing the braces
Tethering is the first step before wearing braces.Interlocking elastic has the effect of creating a gap between the tooth that attaches the sutures and the adjacent teeth.
After attaching the sutures, there are some cases that need to be scaled up, after 3 or 6 months to attach braces.
Step 5: Braces adjustment appointment
The appointments give the orthodontist an opportunity to evaluate the tooth movement and make the necessary recommendations in treatment. Usually the original treatment plan predicts the process throughout the whole treatment time. Since the teeth are constantly moving during treatment, every adjustment presents a new set of circumstances for the orthodontist to evaluate. The patient is essentially re-diagnosed at each appointment throughout the treatment plan, following the original plan as a guide. Most adjustment appointments are made in the 3 to 6 weeks range.
Adjustment appointment plays a very important role, making a great deal of sense in the final result.
