DO YOU WISH FOR HARMONIC SMILE?
It is well known that with orthodontics, teeth can be nicely arranged, but for some people, due to some obsolete misconceptions, this option remains a wish. However, self-adhesive orthodontic systems have long been belied the perceived discomfort with orthodontics.
WHAT IS SELF-LIGATING ORTHODONTICS?
Self-ligating braces are a modern type of conventional fixed orthodontic devices. For traditional orthodontic brackets ("paws" on teeth), and small silicone rubber rings (so-called ligatures) fix the tooth-moving arc. In contrast, self-ligating systems do not require rubber rings or additional elements. Here, the special locks - built into the bracket - fix the arch. This way, teeth can be moved with smaller forces, more efficiently. As a result, orthodontics can be implemented discreetly, gently and quickly.
6 MISCONCEPTIONS, BELIED BY SELF-LIGATING ORTHODONTIC METHODS
During orthodontics, good oral hygiene and regular clinical clening are essential for maintaining dental health.
ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT CAN TAKE YEARS
Self-ligating systems can shorten the duration of treatment. With self-ligating brackets, the teeth can be moved more efficiently, so you can wear the fixed device up to 50% shorter time. Controls are also less frequent (about every 2 months), so there is less time spent in the dental chair.
ORTHODONTICS IS PAINFUL
Self-ligating orthodontics have a significantly lower friction in the device due to the lack of rubbers, so the teeth can be moved to the desired position with soft forces. The smaller force on the teeth has several advantages: less discomfort, less tension, less pain at the beginning of the orthodontic and at the arc changes, and the chance of root absorption is also greatly reduced.
TOOTH EXTRACTION IS NEEDED FOR ORTHODONTICS
With self-ligating orthodontics, greater expansion of the tooth can be achieved without the risk of removal of the tooth from the bone. This often avoids tooth extraction, which is relatively common for conventional fixed devices. In addition, the wide arch is more aesthetic.
THERE IS NO ADULT ORTHODONTICS
Because their high lateral expansion capacity, the self-ligating orthodontic devices can solve tremendous congestion without the need for a tooth extraction, and can achieve a remarkably good artifact and wide smile. This technology is also more beneficial for teeth and the periodontium. It is much easier to achieve good dental contact (lower-upper teeth meeting), wearing is comfortable, so it is especially recommended for adult orthodontics.
ORTHODONTICS IS UGLY
With self-ligating orthodontic devices, almost invisible orthodontics can be achieved. They can be made by white porcelain or transparent sapphire brackets, so you don't have to hide your smile during orthodontics.
BRACKETS CAUSE TOOTH DECAYS
The wearing of fixed orthodontists undoubtedly requires a lot of attention and good oral hygiene. However, cleaning self-ligating devices is easier and less time-consuming than conventional fixed braces, because plaque is harder to stick to the surface of rubber-free brackets.
ADVANTAGES OF SELF-LIGATING SYSTEMS
FASTER TREATMENT, LESS CONTROLS
BEAUTIFUL FACE ESTHETIC RESULT
BETTER FOR TEETH AND PERIODONTIUM
EFFECTIVE IN ADULTS ALSO
NO NEED FOR EXTRACTION
WHAT CAN WE DO FOR LONG LASTING RESULTS?
Similarly to other methods, the self-ligating therapy is also supplemented with myofunctional therapy at Volom Dental.
This is a special therapy, where the bad habits and dysfunctional muscle functions that cause the disorder of the denture are corrected. Eliminating the causes of the irregularity (for example, mouth breathing, open mouth, poor tounge position), we can avoid that your teeth get back in the original positions after orthodontics, so your smile stays steady.
