And the intersection and correction sucking habits or incorrect swallowing. (The palatal grid or intra oral screen).

 

 

2. Treatments Orthopedics

They are treatments performed only in children in active stage of growth and development. This moment usually coincides with the start of replacement of canines and molars, between approximately 10-13 years. They are generally treatments using removable appliances can improve the mandibular position and balance the maxillary and mandibular bony bases.

The correction of transverse maxillary deficiency is usually performed with QH, Circuit Breakers or expansion boards and the transverse deficiencies of the lower jaw with expansion boards.
Antero subsequent correction of deficiencies or sagittal treated with functional, or elastic devices between which there is a huge list of appliances (activators Sanders, Andrews, Twin block, etc.).

And for correction of maxillary hypoplasia are common use of the circuit breaker associated with protraction facemask or plates progeny.

In some cases depending on the complexity and degree of discrepancy is necessary conventional orthodontic treatment to correct dental finish position.

3. Treatments Orthodontic

They are basically intended to correct the bad position of the teeth, aligning, leveling, improve the shoulder and overbite, and get favorable aesthetic and functional results.

Orthodontic treatment with fixed brackets can be made with:

 

Removable orthodontic treatments elastic

Made with removable transparent series of plates made by a computer program that reproduces 3D progressive tooth movements. Used in cases of mild to moderate bad occlusions where the aesthetic component is essential for the patient.

Performing extractions of some teeth will be necessary in some cases with significant shortcomings space (usually premolars).

 

Aesthetic brackets

We can find different materials such as composite, porcelain or sapphire. brackets are the same color as the tooth so go unnoticed. It should be noted that hygiene should be stricter.

 

Metal brackets

Are the most common brackets. Currently they are more comfortable than ever, because they are made of high grade stainless steel. Straighten teeth faster because they carry greater strength than other materials. They help of a metal bow and ligatures which may be colored.

 

Ortodoncia fija lingual

Esta técnica consiste en colocar todos los brackets por el lado interno de los dientes, quedando libres de aditamentos las superficies visibles. El resultado final es igual al obtenido a través de la ortodoncia convencional.

Fixed orthodontic conventional vestibular

Roth techniques, Damon, MBT, etc. And the brackets can be metal, or aesthetic (Composite, porcelain or sapphire).

 

Autoligados brackets

These brackets next generation have a “cap” that replaces the elastic ligatures. Along with high-tech bows, mobilize teeth much faster due to the absence of friction-wire brackets and require far fewer adjustments. Many cases initially planned with extractions, these brackets are not necessary.

 

Retainers

All treatments require orthodontics later Retainers adapting lingual generally fixed 33-43 and a removable retainer for the upper max when it is not possible to make a fixed retention superior, plus subsequent visits monitoring and control.
