How do orthodontics braces work?
There are many types of orthodontic instruments, fixed or removable. These instruments are used to help correct the position of the teeth and to influence the development of the jaw. Depending on the specific case, the doctor will select the appropriate equipment to achieve the best results.
What kind of orthodontics instruments does the dentist use?
@ The most commonly fixed instrument orthodontics used include:
Braces with bracket, this is the most common instrument. Braces include metal bracket or porcelain bracket, band, archwire, and elastic ligature. The metal bracket is fixed on the tooth surface. The archwire go through the groove of bracket and the end is attached to the band. Clenching the bow will increase the traction on the teeth, slowly moving them to the desired position. Braces with bracket are often adjusted several months to bring about results as expected.
Placeholder instrument: If the baby teeth are lost prematurely, a placeholder instrument is used to keep the gap between teeth until the permanently teeth grow. A splint is attached to the tooth next to the missing tooth (or space), and a metal cord separates the tooth that is connected to the tooth opposite the gap.
The upper jaw expander, which is fixed to the molars on either side. Incremental separation of the two functions by the push action in the middle of the instrument.
@ Common removable orthodontics instruments include
Orthodontic trays, a traditional bracket replacement. Control trays operate in the same way that fixed instruments operate, with no metal wires and brackets. These trays are actually transparent and are removed when eating, brushing and flossing.
Removable placeholders, these devices deliver as effectively as fixed placeholders. They are made of metal frame was attached on the acrylic base with the size fitting over the jawbone.
The upper jaw expander removable, instrument used to widen the roof of the mouth. Expansion of the upper jaw provides additional space for the teeth to grow properly.
