ORTHODONTIC TREATMENTS

Orthodontic treatment is a specialized dental procedure aimed at correcting misalignments and irregularities in the teeth and jaw. Utilizing braces, aligners, or other devices, orthodontic treatment focuses on achieving optimal dental alignment for improved function and aesthetics. This comprehensive approach ensures a well-coordinated smile and addresses various concerns through personalized orthodontic strategies.

A HEALTHIER MOUTH STARTS WITH STRAIGHTER TEETH.  

WHY get braces done?

1.  Bad Breath (Halitosis): Misaligned teeth can trap food particles, fostering bacterial growth that contributes to bad breath or halitosis. Braces aid in aligning teeth, reducing areas where bacteria can accumulate

2.  Jaw Dysfunction and TMJ Disorders: Crooked teeth can lead to jaw misalignment and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, causing discomfort and difficulty in jaw movement. Braces help correct dental alignment, addressing these issues.

3.  Gingivitis or Gum Inflammation: Crowded or misaligned teeth create challenges in effective oral hygiene, increasing the risk of gingivitis or gum inflammation. Braces contribute to proper alignment, facilitating better gum health.

4.  Sensitive Teeth: Irregular teeth alignment may lead to uneven wear and heightened tooth sensitivity. Braces help redistribute biting forces, reducing tooth sensitivity over time

5.  Chipping of Teeth: Misaligned teeth are more prone to uneven wear and chipping. Braces work to align teeth properly, reducing the risk of chipping and promoting overall dental health.

6.  Tooth Loss: Severe misalignment or overcrowding can contribute to tooth loss over time. Braces or aligners address these issues, preserving tooth structure and preventing premature tooth loss.

WHAT are the different types of braces available?  

1.  Metal Braces: Traditional metal braces use stainless steel brackets and wires to effectively correct dental misalignments, cost-effectively offering durability and efficiency.

2.  Ceramic Braces: Ceramic braces blend with the natural tooth color, making them a more aesthetically appealing option. While similar to metal braces in function, the ceramic material provides a discreet alternative for those conscious of their appearance during orthodontic treatment.

3.  Self-ligating Braces: Self-ligating braces use a sliding mechanism instead of elastic bands to secure the wires, reducing friction and allowing for more comfortable and efficient tooth movement. They offer a discreet appearance and require fewer adjustments during the treatment process.

Orthodontic Treatment PROCESS at Studio Aesthetique:

1.  Detailed Photographs and Impressions: Precision begins with the capture of detailed photographs and impressions, allowing orthodontists to assess the current dental condition and plan for effective treatment tailored to each patient's unique needs.

2.  X-rays and Photographs Studied: In-depth analysis of X-rays and photographs follow, providing orthodontists with a comprehensive understanding of tooth alignment, jaw structure, and potential issues. This meticulous examination guides the formulation of an individualized treatment strategy.

3.  Detailed Treatment Plan: A detailed treatment plan is meticulously crafted, incorporating insights from the examinations to address specific orthodontic concerns. This plan serves as a roadmap for the entire duration of the orthodontic journey.

4.  First Appointment (Up to 30 mins): The initial appointment, lasting up to 30 minutes, involves discussing thetreatment plan, addressing any questions, and beginning the process of placing braces or aligners, marking the commencement of the orthodontic treatment.

5.  Monthly Appointments (18-20 Months): Subsequent monthly appointments spanning 18-20 months are scheduled to monitor progress, make adjustments, and ensure the teeth are gradually moving into their desired positions, aligning with the established treatment plan.

6.  Trendy Fluorescent Bands: Orthodontic patients enjoy personalizing their braces with trendy fluorescent bands, introducing a fun and stylish element to the treatment process, fostering a positive and engaging experience throughout their orthodontic journey.

Retainers

WHAT are Retainers?

Retainers are essential dental appliances specifically designed to maintain the corrected alignment of teeth following orthodontic treatment. Once braces or aligners have successfully moved the teeth into their desired positions, retainers play a crucial role in preventing any potential relapse or shifting.

These appliances are customized to fit the unique contours of an individual's mouth and are typically prescribed by orthodontists as part of the post-treatment care plan. Wearing retainers as instructed is vital for ensuring the stability of the achieved results, as teeth tend to gradually move back to their original positions.

Therefore, the consistent and proper use of retainers is a key component in preserving the success of orthodontic treatment and safeguarding the investment in a straight and well-aligned smile.

WHY should we wear Retainer?

1. Stability of Results: Retainers are crucial for maintaining the stability of orthodontic results. After braces or aligners have corrected the alignment of teeth, retainers help prevent any relapse or shifting, ensuring that the teeth stay in their corrected positions over time.

2. Prevention of Relapse: Teeth have a natural tendency to shift back to their original positions, especially in the initial months after orthodontic treatment. Wearing retainers consistently helps prevent this relapse, preserving the investment made in achieving a straight and well-aligned smile.

3. Optimal Bite and Alignment: Retainers contribute to preserving the optimal bite and alignment achieved through orthodontic treatment. This is particularly important for long-term oral health, as a stable bite reduces the risk of issues such as jaw pain, TMJ disorders, and abnormal wear on teeth.

4. Customized Maintenance: Retainers are custom-made to fit the individual's mouth, ensuring a comfortable and effective fit. By following orthodontists' instructions regarding retainer wear, patients can contribute significantly to the success of their orthodontic treatment and enjoy the benefits of a beautifully aligned smile for years to come.

Types of Retainers:

  • Removable (Hawley, Essix, Clear, Vivera)

  • Fixed (Bonded, Permanent, Lingual, Wire)
