Types of dental appliances

The orthodontic appliances currently existing on the Cluj medical market, as in any other country, can be grouped in:

1. MOBILE ORTHODONTIC SYSTEMS of the gutter / alignment type, where the leader on the world orthodontic market are those from INVISALIGN:

The device is different from traditional teeth straightening treatments, being without metal, without brackets, with a treatment plan made digitally and presented to the patient in a 3D version, to see exactly what the teeth will look like at the end of treatment, before he controls his device.

It consists of a set of plastic splints, specially made and individualized for each patient, depending on the anomaly. These splints are changed weekly or every 2 weeks, as directed by your orthodontist.

This digital treatment is much more accurate than a classic bracket treatment, it solves any anomaly faster, even many of the extraction or surgical cases.

2. FIXED ORTHODONTIC DEVICES – bracket type

It is usually worn from the age of about 10-11 years;
They can solve anomalies such as: open occlusion, deep occlusion, collapsed occlusion, reverse occlusion, cross occlusion, lingual occlusion, dental crowding, dental spacing, etc.

2.1. What is the procedure for orthodontic treatment with brackets, both in Cluj and in the rest of civilized countries?

– consultation, photographs and dental radiographs, ± study models, treatment plan;
– dental braces application;
– the average duration of orthodontic treatment is about 2.5 years, depending on the dental anomaly, the patient’s age, genetic baggage, eating habits, dental hygiene habits, etc .;
– the device is activated monthly (through visits to the dental clinic), almost throughout the treatment;
– there may be emergencies such as: detached bracket, broken bracket (if the food indications are not followed), the arch creates discomfort in the cheek or lips, all being resolvable by a visit to the dental clinic;
– hygiene must be done carefully, after each meal, with a soft toothbrush, interdental toothbrush and mouthwash;
– hard foods are forbidden (nuts, hazelnuts, toast, apple, popcorn, candies, etc. – they must be cut into slices); as well as vacuum foods (chewing gum, caramels, etc.)

2.2. What are the types of fixed braces?
Fixed appliances
non-physiognomic – with metal brackets – simple or self-ligating (which close through a flap and keep the same force on the tooth between activations, being more efficient than the classic device);
physiognomic – with ceramic, hybrid and sapphire brackets;

Fixed devices versus alignment / gutter type devices:

FAQS ALIGNERE / GUTIERE BRACKETSI
AESTHETIC YES NO (METALLIC),
YES (PHYSIOLOGICAL), but they still have a metal spring, even if it is covered with white tape
PAIN NO - slight tension, maximum 2 days SOMETIMES - when changing the spring
FOOD RESTRICTIONS NOT YES - foods that can make a vacuum and hard foods (apple, bread crust, hazelnuts, nuts, etc.) are prohibited.
TREATMENT DURATION 3 times less compared to a treatment with brackets; About 2.5 years;
HYGIENE It remains unchanged, and flossing can still be used; Sanitation after each meal with a soft toothbrush, interdental toothbrush and mouthwash;

With the help of brackets, almost all dental anomalies can be solved, although there is a certain limitation regarding the alignment, both as time and as a final solution of the case.
Given that we live in a digital world, alignment devices are much more current. In Cluj-Napoca you can find luxury treatments, starting from virtual planning, 3D scanning (fingerprint), and result calculated and expected from the beginning, much closer to the final result. The Invisalign device is a device with many advantages over the traditional one with brackets.

Conclusions:

Unlike fixed braces, brace / alignment braces require the absolute cooperation of the patient, but have many advantages, such as:

Fewer dental restorations before, during and after orthodontic treatment, shorter treatment time, improved comfort during treatment, preserved hygiene, unrestricted nutrition, aesthetic appearance far beyond bracket treatment;
Teeth with dental fillings (fillings) can be used as anchor teeth (support) for orthodontic treatment, regardless of which, if they correspond from a morphological point of view;
For anchor teeth used with the splint system, there are fewer carious lesions, compared to treatment with fixed braces;
The device is almost invisible (the one with splints), friends and acquaintances not noticing that you are in orthodontic treatment;
Impeccable hygiene;
Food kept, without any food restrictions; Increased self-confidence while wearing splints, there are no complexes and frustrations, especially in the case of adolescents, related to the teasing of others;

You can become your best option, without others noticing…. Except in the end! Do not hesitate!
Change your well-being in the best version of yourself! We are waiting for you…
