There are a variety of orthodontic bracket systems available at our practice. Our range includes porcelain orthodontic systems, which are known to be more cosmetically appealing than metal brackets, though the down side is that it usually takes more time to achieve the desired result than the more traditional metal bracket systems. They are also more expensive and don't always cater to the patient's needs.
It is estimated that 7 out of 10 people would benefit from orthodontic systems at some stage of their lives. In order to ensure that orthodontic problems do not develop, it is important to be assessed at an early age. For most individuals, the best time to commence orthodontic treatment is between the ages of 12-14. However, before braces are fitted, cleaning and preliminary treatments may be required.
In order to properly maintain your braces, as well as prevent decay and gingivitis, it is important to do the following:
- Brush 3 times a day.
- Use Super Floss once a day (flossing both around brackets and between teeth).
- Interproximal brushing after eating.
- Fluoride mouth rinse on a daily basis.
To better strengthen a tooth that is vulnerable to fracture (as a result of a root canal treatment, etc) an artificial crown may be required to protect and straighten the natural one. The crown is the part of the tooth that is seen above the gums.
Artificial crowns are made from long-lasting materials, usually porcelain and gold alloy. Though the risk of allergies to these materials is rare, this should be assessed before crowns are placed.
The preparation for a crown involves the following steps
- At your first appointment, the area around the tooth will be numbed with local anaesthetic, and the tooth then shaped with a high speed drill. This will make the tooth smaller so that the new crown can fit according to your bite.
- To ensure that changes to the prepared tooth are recorded, regular impressions will be taken throughout the process.
- After shaping is completed, a temporary crown will be attached to the tooth with protective temporary cement. It is important to remember that the temporary crown is delicate, so sticky foods and hard foods should be avoided.
- At your next appointment, the temporary crown will be removed and the permanent crown fitted with dental cement. No drilling will be required, and the cement should reach full strength after 24 hours.
