Orthodontics is the branch of dental surgery dealing with the treatment of teeth and jaw irregularities: misalignment of teeth arches (jaw bone – mandible in occlusion) and/or malpositions of teeth in the arches (crowded, crooked or gapped teeth).
The orthodontic treatment by means of brackets ensures:
- the alignment of jaw bones in occlusion;
- the correct position of teeth in the teeth arches;
- the elimination of factors that may generate other dental conditions: cavities, the periodontal disease;
- higher self-confidence;
- elimination of speech imperfections;
- a better self-image.
The Smile Experts Dental Clinic offers its patients a wide range of brackets: invisible brackets, sapphire brackets, ceramic brackets, metal brackets, mobile brackets and retainers.
|Types of braces|
|Incognito® hidden braces||Incognito® are fixed brackets.|
They are invisible due to their application on the lingual side (the back) of teeth.
|Invisalign® clear braces||Invisalign® are invisible and mobile brackets.|
The clear mouth tray can be fully removed by the patient for cleaning.
|Sapphire braces||Brackets with superior aesthetics are preferred by most of the patients for whom aesthetics is important throughout the treatment.|
Sapphire brackets are completely transparent and imperceptible, regardless of the colour of the teeth on which they are applied.
|Ceramic braces||Ceramic brackets are fixed brackets.|
The brackets are made of ceramics and coloured to mimic the tooth shade.
|Metal braces||Metal brackets are fixed orthodontic appliances, one of the most commonly used methods for orthodontic treatment.|
|Retainer||Wearing a retainer after the orthodontic treatment, for the period recommended by the orthodontist, is required to prevent the teeth from shifting out of position.|
