Braces – Elements of the orthodontic treatment and its role.
This 3D video from Clínica Médico Dental Pardiñas ( shows the different elements used in orthodontic treatment, including brackets, elastics, microscrews etc.
Different movements used in orthodontics in order to achieve a successful treatment are also described.
If left untreated, many orthodontic problems get worse. Orthodontic reatment by a specialist to correct the original treatment often costs less than the additional dental treatments that are required to treat more serious problems that may appear in later years.
Orthodontic treatment is always a change for the better, regardless of your age. The biological processes involved in dental movements are the same in adults as they are in children. The health of your teeth, gums and bones is the most important factor in determining the possible results of orthodontic treatment.
As an adult’s face bones no longer grow, some corrections cannot be achieved by using orthodontic devices, but may also require orthognathic surgery. Impressive facial changes can be achieved with a combination of surgery and orthodontics. Should you require this type of treatment, your specialist will explain all of the different procedures to be carried out.
The use of mini plates and micro screws is very present in orthodontic treatments, but they are not mandatory in all cases.
