In today's world, about 80% of the population has malocclusion. This is not a disease, but only a feature of development that can be corrected. The earlier you start to correct occlusion anomalies - the easier and faster you can give your teeth a healthy position. One of the most effective ways to correct the bite in childhood is the use of orthodontic plates - a structure that is made by individual casts of teeth, and consists of a plastic base and metal arches. They demonstrate effective results in correcting occlusal defects in patients aged 6 to 14 years. It does not make sense to install the plates later than this age, as the formation of the dental system is completed and the technique will be ineffective.
All plates can be divided into removable and non-removable.
In addition, orthodontic plates are single-jawed, with a hand-shaped process, with a retraction arch, with a pusher, and many others. A pediatric orthodontist will help you choose the design, depending on the patient's age and type of occlusion.
Initially, it is necessary to consult and examine a pediatric orthodontist, during which the specialist determines the occlusion defects. Additional research methods are appointed, namely radiography. A panoramic image of the teeth will help identify possible inflammation or abnormalities in the development of the dental system. Based on the orthopantomogram, the doctor determines which design is most effective for correcting the bite. Then the casts are removed from the teeth and a plaster model of the jaw is created - which is then used to make the plate. While the plate is being created, the child needs to be cured of all inflammatory diseases of the oral cavity and carious changes of the teeth, if any. After some time, when the orthodontic plate is ready, the fitting and installation of the structure are performed. The procedure is completely painless, so it takes place without anesthesia. Finally, the orthodontist gives recommendations for the operation and care of the plate. The doctor will also name the approximate duration of treatment, which averages 1-2 years.
