Braces and Aligner Treatment: Orthodontics

braces and aligner treatment

What is Orthodontic Treatment?

Orthodontic treatments are performed to prevent or correct functional problems as well as aesthetic goals. As the harmony between the jaw and teeth improves, dental and gum health is positively affected.

Unlike orthodontic treatments with appliances, fixed orthodontics, which is based on the principle of connecting the tubes and brackets glued on the teeth with wires and force transfer through these wires, is one of the most common treatment modalities applied by dentists specialized in this field.

Braces & Brackets

Braces and brackets ensure that the teeth are arranged in a series in the mouth, making them healthy and aesthetic. For this reason, many people apply to our clinic due to crowding and misalignment of the teeth. Braces and bracket methods are used for the treatment of such dental disorders.

In which cases is braces treatment performed?

  • Irregularities in tooth alignment and position
  • Correction of crooked, trapezoidal and overlapping teeth
  • Correction of jaw disorders and disproportions
  • Elimination of gaps between teeth
  • Smile design
  • Correction of gaps between teeth

How long does dental braces treatment last?

Treatment times can vary between 6 months and 3 years depending on the nature of the orthodontic problem. Many factors such as the type of orthodontic problem, age of the patient, bone structure and tooth structure can affect the duration of the treatment. In addition, patients’ compliance with the instructions recommended by orthodontists can ensure that the treatment is completed within the planned time.

Is braces treatment painful?

On the first day of braces, there may be tension, discomfort and pressure on the cheeks due to the touch of the wires and mild pain. If the wires and brackets break, stinging and pain may occur. In such a case, we recommend that you call our clinic and make an appointment.

At what age should braces be applied?

Orthodontic treatments can be performed at any age today. Children who are regularly taken to the dentist can be referred to pediatric dentists or orthodontists when necessary and start treatment at the right time.

With treatments started at an early age, the harmony and alignment of tooth alignments as well as the size and harmony of the jaws can be regulated. However, this should not be interpreted that these treatments cannot be performed at an advanced age. Even if changes in bone structures cannot be achieved at advanced ages, it is possible to treat tooth alignments in terms of aesthetics and function.

Are there aesthetic braces?

The brackets glued on the teeth can be metal or ceramic. Ceramic braces are in the category of aesthetic systems because they are tooth-colored.

Are the results of braces treatment permanent?

Teeth whose positions and angles have been changed initially tend to return. For this reason, after the treatment is completed, reinforcement is done with the help of removable aligners or with the help of fixative wires applied on the tongue and palate sides of the teeth.

However, regressions called relapses may occur in patients who are non-compliant or uncooperative at this stage. Because in this process, the teeth still tend to return to their original position. For this reason, patients should consult their physicians as soon as possible in case the reinforcement plates are lost or the retainers are broken.
