Orthodontic treatment is a method in dentistry that treats patients with malocclusion issues. These dental problems include crooked teeth, crossbites, and crowded teeth to say the least. With orthodontics, our London dentist will use dental appliances and devices in correcting these bites issues. One of the most popular types of these appliances is braces.
How do you get your dental braces?
If you’re considering braces for your kids, then he needs to visit his dentist. A professional checkup will determine if the treatment really is the appropriate solution for his dental needs.
Dental braces use brackets and metal archwires in order to perform orthodontic treatment on the teeth. If the dentist advices to use braces to support his prognosis, you need to prepare your child for the procedure.
The dentist will take an impression of your child’s teeth to create a model for the creation of the braces. Fabricating your kid’s braces may take a few weeks. This will give you enough time to ensure that his teeth are clean and free of plaque and tartar. Your child’s London dentist might help you with oral prophylaxis for a thorough cleaning.
To begin the procedure, your child’s teeth will be cleaned and dried. After that, an adhesive will be applied to attach the brackets. When the brackets are fixed, the archwires are inserted in each of the brackets. This mechanism will enable the braces to get a good grip on the teeth and move them to their proper position.
This orthodontic treatment is just one of the many techniques in dentistry to help you achieve a healthy and attractive smile. With our dedicated team of dentists and friendly staff, we will ensure that you will have a worthwhile experience in our clinic.
