Orthodontic treatment for children and adults
How it works? Many people appeal to braces, at the orthodontist or dentist’s recommendation, but not everybody knows and how this device works. Briefly, the device applies pressure on teeth to slowly move them in the right position. Movement should be done by moving them by middle of alveolar bone.
Duration. Duration of wearing the braces varies from person to person, depending on the severity of the problem, the distance that must move teeth, the health of the teeth, gums and bone that support the teeth. Also very important it is that the patient should strictly follow the dentist’s instructions. If we make an average, braces are worn between 2 and 3 years. Meanwhile, you need to go to the orthodontist every month so that he can verify if the braces exert correct pressure on the teeth and can adjust if needed.
Pain. It is true that some adjustments to the braces can make you feel a little pain or discomfort. If is too painfully, you can get anti-inflammatory drugs or talk to your doctor.
How age influences? Considering that adult bone is no longer growing, some corrections cannot be obtained. In addition, for adults, the braces may not be sufficient and it is possible to use other additional methods of straightening teeth. In conclusion, braces are a solution for both children and adults, whose way and time of usage varies from person to person, but whose effect is the same: to improve the aesthetics, but also the quality of the bite.
