One -piece removable treatment apparatus for reducing the distance between the upper and the lower front teeth.
Removable bracket with which we want to actively move your teeth. The movement takes place f.e. with springs or adjusting screws.
With a special coloring fluid, we make the dental pads visible in the mouth. As a result, we recognize the areas that have not been cleaned ideally.
ASR | Approximal melting reduction
Abbreviation for "approximal melting reduction": If there is a moderate lack of space, you can eliminate this lack of space by a targeted reduction in the melting coat of individual teeth without removing permanent teeth.
Metal ring that is pushed over the molar. It is used to record a arched wire. For this purpose, the tape on the cheek side has a corresponding lock with different slots into which the arched wire is pushed into.
Wire that runs through the slots of the brackets and ligaments. The teeth are moved along the arch.
Small adhesive parts that are glued to the teeth. Each bracket has a slit (slot) through which the arched wire runs.
Fixed brackets in the upper jaw, with which we push the molars backwards. In order for this movement to work, elastic bands must be stretched from the front hook of the distalizer to the lower molar.
Transparent rails, to remove simple tooth misalignments. These rails are made by us. Each sentence sets 2-3 rails (soft, medium, hard), with which an improvement is gradually achieved. After each sentence, we take a new impression. Depending on the malposition, we need several rail rates.
Grinding the cutting edges
Before incorporating the fixed bracket, broken corners on the cutting edges should be eliminated or reduced by controlled grinding.
Furnecked trains that the patient hangs in the mouth. From where these elastic regulations have to be attached, depends on the treatment task. The elastics are available in different sizes.
FA "is our abbreviation for manual functional analysis, in which we examine the temporomandibular joint and the adjacent muscles. If this examination results in significant problems, appropriate pretreatment should be made before orthodontic treatment.
Due to poor brushing remains the surface on the teeth. This is full of bacteria that attack the enamel. There are white spots that are a preliminary stage of caries. This means that the teeth break if you don't brush better. Proper nutrition plays an important role in this. Soft drinks, for example, contain a lot of sugar that can cause damage!
For an ideal photo documentation and evaluation, we take nine photos each at the beginning and at the end of the treatment, three outside and six within the mouth.
Is our abbreviation for a Goshgarian arch. It is a palate arch that connects the left upper molar to the right upper molar.
Also called facial arch; It is an arc that is attached to the upper molars and has two outer arms. A rubber band is attached to these outdoor arms that is either supported on the neck (neck strap) or on the head (head hood) and so that the molar tubs pull backwards.
It is a palate arch with four loops. It is attached to the palate locks of the upper molars. It serves to stretch the side teeth in the upper jaw.
Method for the treatment of malpositions with transparent rails. According to our requirements, the rails are made computer -aided in the USA. The rails must be worn at least 22 hours a day and need to be changed every 2 weeks.
Here the lower jaw is relocated by a spring covered with plastic, which is attached to the ligaments of the large molars in the upper jaw and is fixed in an additional partial arch in the corner tooth area in the lower jaw.
It is a rubber arch that is able to move a tooth along the arch.
A Kobayashi ligature is a thin wire with a loop. This wire is attached to a bracket. A elastic band can be hung on the loop of the Kobayashi ligature.
Abbreviation for a lingual arch to Wilson. It is an arch that runs on the inside = lingual of the lower jaw teeth. It is attached to the lower molars in the lingual locks.
A thin wire with which we fix the arched wire in the bracket. If we use a wire ligature to block individual teeth, we speak of a roller ligature.
Special screw that is inserted into the jawbone. Since this screw is firmly anchored in the bone, it can be used as an abutment. This screw is simply turned out after the end of the active treatment.
Piercing tooth damage
Damage caused by piercings arise over time and are not reversible. Depending on the piercing, melting defects, gum infections and gum return are created.
An elastic thread with which we can leave forces on individual teeth, e.g. for the elimination of lines.
Also called Helix. It is a palate arch with four loops. It is attached to the palate locks of the upper molars. It serves to stretch the side teeth in the upper jaw.
Small rubber rings that fix the arch wire in the bracket.
Small wire that is glued behind the front teeth and is not visible from the outside. It ensures that the incisors in particular cannot turn again or that gaps can open there. It should always remain glued in.
To stabilize the result after successful active treatment, we use removable brackets. These are intensively worn at the beginning; we later reduce the wearing time.
With this Sabbagh universal spring apparatus, the lower jaw is relocated by a telescope system, which is attached to the ligaments of the thick molars in the upper jaw and is fixed on the existing bow in the lower jaw in the area of the corner teeth.
In addition to the usual stainless steel arches, we prefer to use highly elastic titanium arches at the beginning of the treatment, which develop lower forces and thus help to ensure that the teeth are less sensitive to pain.
The transparent stabilization rail is almost invisible as a stabilization clip and hardly influences speaking.
This is a two -part removable bracket with which we reduce the level between the upper and lower front teeth.
By overlapping two side X-ray images (e.g. initial and intermediate and inter-findings X-ray), we receive precise information about changes that have already been achieved.
Two -part brackets to reduce the distance between the upper and the lower anterior teeth. For this purpose, the upper part of the bracket receives so -called feed porn and the lower part of the bracket two slopes. When biting, the lower jaw slides forward along the feed porns.
Since the environment of the adhesive particles is exposed to an increased acid attack during the treatment, we recommend regular application of a smooth surface sealer.
Each tooth will be intensely cleaned - if necessary, with a powder blasting device.
So that we can clearly assign every tooth, we use the FDI tooth scheme. We refer to the 32 permanent teeth (tooth scheme) as:
- 11 - 18 upper jaws on the right
- 21 - 28 upper jaw left
- 31 - 38 lower jaw left
- 41 - 48 lower jaw on the right
- 11 = first tooth from the middle in the OK right = medium incisor in the upper jaw on the right
- 18 = 8. Tooth from the middle in the OK right = wisdom tooth in the upper jaw on the right
- 45 = 5th tooth from the middle in the UK right
We refer to the 20 milk teeth (milk tooth scheme) as:
- 51 - 55 upper jaws on the right
- 61 - 65 upper jaw left
- 71 - 75 lower jaw on the left
- 81 - 85 lower jaw on the right
- 51 = first milk tooth from the middle in the OK right = medium incisor in the upper jaw on the right
- 55 = 5th milk tooth from the middle in the upper jaw on the right
- 85 = 5th milk tooth from the middle in the lower jaw on the right
Oral hygiene: learn to clean properly
In order to avoid damage to the teeth during treatment, we have put together a collection of oral hygiene.
Cleaning with system
So that all the tooth surfaces are really cleaned when brushing your teeth, it is best if we always clean in the same order. Simply remember the name Kai: molar teeth, outdoor areas, interior.
- The molar teeth Lower jaw: Scrub movements from top to bottom and from bottom to top, one after the other right from the back to the front and left from the back to the front. Then upper jaw: one after the other right from the back to the front and left from the back to the front.
- The outdoor areas Lower jaw: with circular movements from right to the front teeth, then from left back to the front teeth, then the front teeth from the corner tooth to the other corner tooth. Then to the upper jaw: from right to the front and to the front teeth, then from the left back to the front teeth, then the front teeth from the corner tooth to the other corner tooth. At the same time, set the toothbrush on the front of the sides on an already cleaned area.
- Finally the inner areas Lower jaw: Let the brush slide from the gums to the molar teeth, from the right over the front teeth to the left. Then the upper jaw: let the brush slide from the gums to the molar teeth, from the right back over the front teeth to the left. Keep the toothbrush vertically in the front area and clean it from canine to canine.
Important The same cleaning movements must be carried out with the manual toothbrush and the electric toothbrush! If there is no fixed bracket: clean from red to white. That means: clean vertically from the gums to the tooth and each tooth 5 times. With a solid bracket: vibration technology. That means: attach the toothbrush to the gums in 45 ° and make small horizontal vibrating movements.
It's worth it - for healthy teeth and a bright smile!
