Metal braces are classic designs for correcting bite and teeth position. As for aesthetics, here they are inferior to structures made of ceramics and sapphire, but in terms of efficiency they surpass all analogues, allowing to correct serious occlusion defects and dental anomalies.
There are the following types of braces:
Vestibular structures are fixed on the outer surface of the teeth. They are clearly visible in the mouth, which makes them less popular, despite the fact that modern models are small and comfortable to wear.
Lingual braces are fixed on the inside of the teeth, so they are completely invisible to others. They are highly effective and avoid psychological discomfort.
Ligature braces use elastic ligatures (elastic bands) with which the braces are fixed on the arch. To make the design look more aesthetically pleasing, they are produced with black, silver, white rubber bands. This allows the use of ligatures that will shade the enamel, make the teeth whiter, and if necessary, the patient can choose the product even for the color of the skin and eyes.
The metal bracket system is a budget correction option, suitable for the treatment of any pathologies of the dentition (dystopic canines, teeth with rotation, etc.) and is easy to clean.
The terms of treatment are determined individually in each case. On average, the treatment time is 1-2 years, and with significant defects it can reach 2.5 years.
The duration of treatment depends on the following factors:
Before starting orthodontic treatment, the doctor assesses the condition of the oral cavity, takes a panoramic image of the teeth. On the basis of the diagnostic results, braces are selected, the trajectory of occlusion alignment is determined. At this stage, a treatment plan is developed, an impression of the jaw is performed, on the basis of which a bracket system will be created.
Before installing the structure, caries is treated, dental calculus is removed, and soft tissue pathologies are eliminated. When the oral cavity is completely healthy, a bracket system is installed: a separate element is glued to each tooth, after which an arc is inserted into the lock, creating pressure in the desired direction. During treatment, the patient periodically visits the orthodontist. To facilitate adaptation, treatment is carried out in stages. A correction is performed about once a month – the arch is tightened, and every 3-4 months – professional cleaning in dentistry.
With the help of a metal bracket system, almost any bite pathology can be eliminated. After treatment, the results must be fixed, for which a fixed arch is installed on the inner surface of the teeth, which is worn one and a half to two times longer than the bracket systems. It is also possible to wear caps (they are worn at night and for several hours during the day).
The following rules should be followed from the very first days of wearing braces:
A metal bracket system is a classic method of bite correction. Despite the different attitudes towards the aesthetic characteristics of these structures, they are unmatched in efficiency and allow you to correct the most serious malocclusion and various dental anomalies in both children and adults. But in any case, the orthodontist will determine the appropriateness of using this or that system.
