Bite correction

Crooked teeth and malocclusion often interfere not only with a person’s health but with his or her complete life. After all, problems with the teeth can provoke the appearance of complexes about the appearance and create psychological discomfort.

Using the methods of modern orthodontics, you can quickly and painlessly align teeth, improve aesthetics of the face, correct bite, functional occlusion and position of the mandible. If you want to take care of your own health, get rid of self-doubt and go for a life with a smile, do not pull with a visit to the dentist.

What is a bite and why it should be corrected

The bite is the closure of the upper and lower dental rows in a calm state. There are five main types of malocclusion: the distal, mesial, deep, open, crossover.

Correction of the occlusion is necessary without fail because the wrong position of the teeth can have unpleasant consequences, namely:

  • speech defects – clearly manifested in open and deep bite, when there are problems with the pronunciation of whistling and hissing sounds, as well as sounds that require the tip of the tongue;
  • excessive load on the stomach and intestines – a consequence of the uneven distribution of the chewing load on the teeth and insufficient grinding of food in the process of chewing;
  • teeth disease and periodontitis – due to improper closure, teeth are worn out faster, more prone to caries, gums and bone loss may also occur;
  • problems with the temporomandibular joint – click, joint pain and headache.

According to statistics, more than 80% of people have malocclusion and crooked teeth. The main reasons are the consumption of mostly soft foods, childhood habits (finger sucking, wrong position during sleep), maternal illness during pregnancy and a genetic factor.

Bite correction in children is possible from 5-6 years. If you notice a change in your child’s bite, make an appointment with your doctor for a quick and easy solution. In children (5-10 years) it is possible to effectively correct the bite with the plates, provided that the child has a slight violation of the dentition.

Contrary to different opinions, adult bite correction is possible at any age. Even if you are not a teenager, but the problem of crooked teeth and malocclusion prevents you from living, enroll in consultation at Bilobrov Clinic, and our specialists will find the best treatment for you.

Bite correction: how a treatment plan is created

The first stage is the consultation of an orthodontic doctor (in difficult cases – in conjunction with a maxillofacial surgeon). In addition to the professional examination, orthodontic consultation includes:

  1. creation of a mold, on the basis of which conclusions are drawn about symmetries, clusters of teeth, etc.;
  2. photos of the face and teeth – help determine the asymmetry of smile and face, aesthetics in general;
  3. x-ray – provides information on the inclination of teeth and jaws.

Based on all the above materials, an accurate treatment plan is drawn up. It is important to note that the treatment method at the Bilobrov Clinic is selected not only on the basis of diagnostic results but also taking into account all the wishes of the patient.

Bite correction methods

Bite can be corrected in many ways, but the main methods are caps, braces, or braces in combination with maxillofacial surgery.

One of the most frequently asked questions of patients is: “Is it possible to correct a bite without braces?” Yes, it is possible if the fracture and the irregularities of the dentition are minor. For such cases, modern orthodontic designs are used which carry a certain amount of time – most often during nighttime sleep.

Cap or line is a plate that is made individually and repeats the contours of the teeth. During the treatment period, an average of three to several dozen drops is required. Each subsequent cap is created with the necessary offset to move the teeth. This method of bite correction is suitable for relatively light disorders. Among the benefits of cap:

  • comfort in operation;
  • invisibility;
  • ease of care and no pain (compared to braces).

However, the cap requires discipline from the patient (it is necessary to wear for a while without removing it) and caution (capes are rather fragile designs). In addition, when wearing liners, it should be remembered that during use, you cannot eat and drink any beverages (other than plain water).

Braces are permanent orthodontic constructions that can be used to correct any pathology of the bite. The most common types of braces:

  • metal (effective, durable and budget);
  • ceramic (almost imperceptible, more expensive than metal and more fragile);
  • lingual (attached to the inside of the dentition).

After the completion of orthodontic treatment (both with the help of a cap and after braces), the installation of retentive devices (trainers) is required. In fact, it is a metal thread that is installed on the inside of the dental row and guarantees the fixation of the correct position of the teeth.

An important point – before installing both the cap and the braces, it is necessary to carry out professional teeth cleaning and to cure all diseased teeth.

Are braces hurt?

The process of installation of braces is painless and takes 1.5-2 hours. In the first five days after installation of the braces, the patient feels tension in the teeth, also during this time the oral mucosa gets used to the presence of metal or ceramics in the mouth.

In the future, the pain and discomfort generally disappear. Slight pain may temporarily occur after the correct procedures when the orthodontic doctor “twists” the braces to move the teeth more efficiently. The minimum period of treatment with braces is 1 year.
