ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT

Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that deals with the orientation of the bottom and upper jaw, correction of crooked teeth or skeletal profiles. The ideal period for orthodontic treatment is between the ages 7-8. Some crooked or improper positioning that is not identified during these years affect the jaw structure and its proper development, as it starts to settle into place at this particular age.

CASES WHICH REQUIRE PREVENTATIVE ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT

Some cases require preventative orthodontic treatment. These are cases such as unusual swallowing habits or habits such as breathing from the mouth, sucking on the thumb, a pencil or the tongue, etc.

ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT OPTIONS

Depending on the orthodontic issue at hand, various types of apparatus we used for treatment, such as removable, functional and fixed appliances. For uncomplicated orthodontic issues, made of a plastic plate that fits over the roof of the mouth and wire branches, removable appliances can be used to fix the problem. Underdevelopment or over development in the upper or bottom jaw requires functional appliances which help the jaw develop in a certain direction, and are used during the growth-development period.  Used more widely in orthodontic treatment in recent years, fixed appliances are effective in moving teeth to their proper positions with braces which consist of brands, wires and/or brackets that are fixed to the teeth and are used as anchors. Besides these main types of appliances, there are many more appliances which help with dental and oral correctional treatment. The most commonly used are the extra-oral appliances, used especially for skeletal problems. When active orthodontic treatment is completed, reinforcement treatments are very important in terms of preventing relapses or deterioration.

LINGUAL ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT

In orthodontic treatment, lingual braces are placed behind the teeth, by the tongue and palate. Therefore, it is a great option for patients to have their teeth straightened without the braces showing. This procedure is especially preferred by adults. Technological advancements in the field of cosmetic orthodontics in recent years have opened a way to treatment options that are completely unnoticeable and successful in terms of treatment at the same time.

TRANSPARENT PLAQUE ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT

For orthodontic treatment without the use of wires, transparent plaques are used. Varying in numbers according to the degree of crookedness in the teeth, these plaques are changed every 2-3 weeks for patients. Simple deformities are successfully treated with these appealing plaques. With the extraordinary way that these transparent plaques change your smile, you will barely notice you are in the midst of treatment. For transparent plaque treatment, dental measurements are obtained from the patient. These measurements are scanned and transferred to a computer program. In this program, the future movements of the teeth are predicted.

DENTURE TREATMENTS

Denture Treatment is a branch of dentistry that focuses on replacing what is missing. The aim is to replace soft and hard tissue that is missing, and sometimes to also protect existing soft and hard tissue. The most suitable type of denture varies from patient to patient.

PARTIAL DENTURES

A partial denture rests on a metal framework consisting of clasps made of acrylic and metal, which are placed on some of the natural teeth and serve as anchors for the denture.

PORCELAIN BRACES

When one or more teeth are missing, braces are attached to natural teeth to assist as anchors. Attached to these neighboring natural teeth for support after they have been filed down, these braces are prepared in a laboratory. With these braces, patients regain their ability to chew, their phonetic function and original appearance. A number of criteria are taken into account when applying braces and it is usually the full ceramic or metal supported ceramic porcelain crowns that are preferred. In rare cases, valuable metals such as gold may even be used at the bottom of the porcelain crown. These types of porcelain are considered to have a longer lifespan.
