The orthodontic appliance is part of the rituals of childhood and adolescence. However, something has changed and that is that aesthetic motivations have ceased to be unspeakable, hence the demand for orthodontic treatments or smile designs has grown exponentially in recent times.
When is the right time for correction?
There is no ideal age and in most cases it can be done at any age. It is the orthodontist who decides when is the most appropriate time. The check-ups should start at 6 years of age, since the signs can be diagnosed early. If there is growth and the problem is structural, the ideal age is between 6 to 11 years. If the problem is dental once the definitive dental replacement has been made.
However, orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age. Everyone wants a healthy, beautiful smile and the proof is that 20-25% of orthodontic patients today are adults.
What specialist treats it?
Dental malocclusion must be treated by a specialist in Dentistry. At Clearfy we work with doctors with experience and backed by their results. All members of the Clearfy team are trained to efficiently and accurately capture a 3D image of your smile.
Orthodontic appliances can be made of metal, ceramic, or plastic. They can be removable or they can be some braces attached to the teeth. Its action is based on placing a constant and gentle force in a carefully controlled direction, brackets or aligners slowly move the teeth to a corrected position.
Why is orthodontic treatment important?
Crooked teeth are more difficult to clean and maintain. An incorrect bite can also cause abnormal wear on tooth surfaces, slurred speech, and possibly joint problems (TMJ).
There can also be a psychological aspect to an unattractive smile. Children with untreated orthodontic problems can go through life with low self-esteem.
