To date, aesthetics and oral health have led to an increasing demand for orthodontic treatments in adults. The most requested orthodontics in these cases is invisible orthodontics; lingual orthodontics, ceramic brackets and transparent aligners. We can correct dental positions incorrectly and if it was necessary to perform orthographic surgeries for a good harmony. A good occlusion increases the longevity of our teeth.
The equipment we use can be fixed or removable depending on the case.
Metal brackets: Device that is cemented to the tooth to perform on it orthodontic forces. It consists of a base prepared to cement over the tooth and a part with a groove, where the arch will pass, and some fins, which will serve to place the system that links the arch. Each piece of the mouth has a type of bracket assigned and in some cases they can carry attachments, like hooks, etc.
Ceramic or aesthetic brackets: The bracket is transparent instead of metallic. For cases where aesthetics prevail.
Mini implants: Mini implants are used in orthodontic treatments to achieve anchoring. The term anchoring is very important in this specialty, since in most orthodontic treatments the posterior teeth are used to anchor and move the previous pieces. The mini implants have revolutionized the orthodontic treatments, since with them we can create the anchor without leaning on the posterior pieces, getting to correct problems previously very difficult to solve.
Retainers: Once the treatment is finished, the orthodontist proceeds to remove the brackets and place retainers, which are used to keep the teeth in their new positions until your bone, gums and muscles adapt to the new dental relationship.
Removable appliances: Consists of a resin device that has multiple functions such as expansion of the palate, slow bone growth, reeducate swallowing, digital suction restriction.
