FIXED BRACELETS IN CHILDREN AND TEENS
DIE OBERFLÄCHENVERSIEGELUNG BEI FESTER ZAHNSPANGE
Durch die erschwerte Hygiene bei fester Zahnspange können Karies und Entfärbungen leider vorkommen. Daher versiegeln wir die Oberfläche mit einem Speziallack, um den empfindlichen Zahnschmelz zu schützen. So sind die Zähne bereits vor dem Aufbringen der Brackets geschützt.
Trotzdem muss auf penible Zahnreinigung geachtet werden. Eine regelmäßige professionelle Zahnreinigung kann dabei unterstützen.
If large tooth movements are to be carried out, fixed braces are the best solution. It can close gaps between teeth, move several teeth at once or rotate individual teeth and re-align them.
The fixed braces consist on the one hand of small plates, the so-called brackets, which are glued directly onto the teeth. On the other hand, from the arch that connects the brackets with each other and permanently exerts pressure on the bit. In this way, good treatment results can be achieved quickly and inexpensively.
The brackets for fixed braces are available in different versions:
STANDARD METAL BRACKETS
They are part of the the public health insurance standard version and are made of stainless steel. They are robust and suitable for allergy sufferers, but are also relatively large. The arches are stretched into the brackets with wire or rubber.
SELF-LIGATING SPEED BRACKETS
They are very small and made of allergy-friendly stainless steel. Due to the shape and small size, the speed brackets hardly generate any friction in the mouth, so that the treatment is much less painful and with less risk of injury. The arches are inserted with a clip mechanism. The treatment time can be greatly reduced by reducing the friction.
They are made of tooth-colored ceramic and are therefore less noticeable than metal brackets. The treatment success and duration are comparable to the conventional metal brackets.
They are made of synthetic sapphire and therefore transparent and translucent. The natural tooth color can shine through and in combination with white arches looks even more inconspicuous. To avoid discoloration of the sapphire brackets, extremely thorough cleaning is required. In other respects, the duration of treatment is comparable to that of conventional metal brackets.
