The aim of orthodontic treatment is not only to make an aesthetic contribution to the person by correcting the crowding in the teeth and the mismatch in the jaw. In addition to this, preventing possible dental caries, tooth and gum diseases and joint problems are among the duties of this specialty.
Orthodontic problems may start in childhood, or may occur in adulthood due to problems such as early permanent tooth loss, gum disease, trauma. Therefore, performing the first orthodontic examination at the age of 6-7 years, when the primary teeth begin to fall out, allows many orthodontic problems to be treated very easily.
It is an orthodontic treatment method without using braces and using only clear aligners (appliances) that allow the teeth to reach the desired position. In this method, clear aligners, which are designed entirely in computer environment, and produced by 3D modeling in order to obtain the desired result.
These aligners, which are then attached to the teeth, move the teeth in millimeters to reach the desired position.
Yes, it is possible to see your treatment plan created in the virtual environment in three dimensions. You can see not only the result of the treatment, but also the movement of your teeth during the treatment.
Clear aligner treatment is a treatment method that can be applied to anyone aged 13-14 and over. Whether you are suitable for orthodontic treatment with clear aligners, which is one of the most preferred methods in recent years, is determined by the doctor’s control.
The most important feature of clear aligners is that they are almost invisible. It is very advantageous for people who care about their appearance and think that orthodontic braces will affect their work. It does not negatively affect speech. With its detachable feature, you can remove your clear aligner at your wedding, meetings and other important days. Removing it while eating is another advantage. Because the fact that it is removable, you can maintain your oral hygiene more easily.
In order for the teeth to move, a force must be applied to the teeth. Clear aligners also apply forces to move your teeth. Due to these forces, there will be pressure and pain in the teeth for a few days. In the following days, your teeth will continue to move, but the discomfort in your teeth will pass.
Appointments are normally given every 4-6 weeks, but your doctor may want to see you and perform some procedures at a different time. In the appointments, the computer simulation of the patient is opened, the current intraoral image and the computer image are compared and the treatment is continued accordingly. Adding/removing attachments or abrasion processes that need to be done are applied.
All plaques are given to our patients who cannot come to the controls regularly, especially our patients who come from abroad, before the treatment process begins. However, in order to follow the process, they should not skip the doctor’s controls.
You should wear clear aligners for an average of 20-22 hours a day. Clear aligners that are only worn at night will not finish your treatment as you wish. Ideally, it should be removed only while eating.
With the development of orthodontic technology in recent years, brace types have also increased. Porcelain (ceramic) clear braces are orthodontic braces made of ceramic material with the same structure and effect as metal braces, which are widely used in fixed orthodontic treatment. Because they are much more aesthetic and invisible than metal braces, they are especially preferred by adults and those with aesthetic concerns.
When the braces are first inserted, a slight pain may be felt as they exert a certain amount of force on the teeth, but there is no constant and severe pain. This situation, which varies from person to person, returns to normal within 2-3 days. In addition, good oral care throughout the treatment is one of the factors that reduce pain.
Fixed orthodontic (brace) treatment has no side effects such as decaying teeth. Decay of teeth is a result that will occur whether orthodontic treatment is applied or not due to insufficient oral hygiene.
If you clean your mouth well during the fixed orthodontic treatment period, you will prevent possible dental caries.
The disorder that the patient complains about will also affect the content and therefore the duration of the orthodontic treatment plan. While simpler orthodontic problems can be resolved in a few months, many orthodontic treatments, depending on the type of problem experienced, have successful results in 1-2 years.
During the removal of the braces, the teeth are fixed to each other with the retainer attached to the inner side of the anterior 6-8 teeth. Therefore, the return of the obtained result is prevented. This retainer is absolutely invisible from the outside. After the orthodontic treatment is over, try to comply with the controls prescribed by your doctor.
Intraoral removable appliances are orthodontic treatment tools that can be attached and removed at any time and can direct the development of teeth and jaws. It is applied to prevent jaw stenosis and to make room for teeth, especially during the periods when children’s teeth begin to erupt. Placeholders, reinforcing appliances, jaw expander appliances or habit-breaking appliances are classified as removable orthodontic appliances. Removable appliances, which are generally used in the treatment of jaw disorders, are preferred in early treatment.
Myobrace treatment is a specially designed three-stage orthodontic appliance system that regulates the development of the jaws and their position to each other. With Myobrace, which is a preventive orthodontic treatment system, upper and lower jaw development problems are treated and poor oral habits are corrected. This system ensures proper alignment of the jaws by eliminating possible external factors (such as muscles, swallowing habits, lips, wrong breathing) that affect the development of the jaw.
