In orthodontics, braces are used to rearrange teeth in new physiognomic and physiological positions. Because we know how important first impression is, we want our patients to be able to smile with confidence!
First of all, we will have a little chat. We will get to know each other and we will ask you what you like and don’t like about your teeth and, more importantly, what your goal is. The facial and intra-oral exam will be completed by a teeth impression, after which we will make a model in our laboratory. This will help us to obtain the right diagnosis but also to record the starting point which acts as a point of reference throughout the treatment. To this end, we will take a series of diagnosis photos and recommend a set of x-rays. On the next session, we will explain the treatment options.
Fixed or mobile braces? Usually, mobile braces work better with kids, to guide and stimulate growth. Fixed braces have brackets attached to individual teeth, connected via a steel wire. They act with precision and selectively. Depending on the diagnosis and age, we will recommend the best option for you.
Whether fixed or mobile, braces hinder the correct cleaning of the teeth. The purpose of orthodontics is to create a perfectly aligned and healthy teeth! For this purpose, you will need to follow rigorous and frequent (monthly) profilaxy treatments.
