Orthodontics deals with the correction of malpositioned teeth and jaws in children and adults as there is no upper age limit for placing fixed appliances. They can be conventional, with metal brackets, or aesthetic, with ceramic, white brackets. Also, there are self-litigating braces that shorten the treatment time.
Plate-like, removable braces are used with children in the treatment of malpositioned teeth and jaws in the period of growth and development. To motivate a child to wear braces, you may choose among the variety of colors and different images in the braces plate. The therapy is most often started during the first permanent tooth eruption and can last until the end of the permanent teeth eruption.
The decision on the method of therapy implementation is made by the orthodontist based on the patient’s medical history and analysis of panoramic x-ray (orthopantomogram) and cephalogram images.
