Types of Appliances

FIXED APPLIANCES

They are the most frequently used due to their precision.

A person can lead a normal life while wearing them and eat normally, although it is recommended to have meticulous hygiene during the process.

Braces are the most commonly used. These adhere to the surface of the tooth and together with special archwires and ligatures allow force to be applied to the teeth in order to carry out the desired movements and place the teeth in the ideal position.

Patients who use braces will have to go to periodic check-ups to make the pertinent adjustments from time to time until the treatment is completed.

Today we have both metallic and transparent brackets that are more aesthetic and practically invisible.

REMOVABLE APPLIANCES

 

It is usually used in children during development, and helps to correct problems derived from habits such as thumb sucking, pencils etc …

FIXED SPACE MAINTAINERS

If a child loses a temporary tooth prematurely, they are very helpful in preventing movement of the adjacent teeth in the edentulous space and thus facilitating the eruption of the permanent tooth in position.

 

REMOVABLE SPACE KEEPERS

They are the alternative to fixed space maintainers.

TRANSPARENT ALIGNERS

 

This is today the most used alternative for adults. They are practically invisible and  by being removable the patient can eat, drink and brush their teeth normally. The aligners are changed from time to time and,  by being flexible, they apply pressure to the teeth and place them in the desired position.

 

RETAINERS

They are used at the end of an orthodontic treatment, and prevent the teeth from returning to their original position. There are two types:

Fixed: It is usually a metal wire and is cemented on the inside of the teeth.

Removable: They are made of plastic and are normally placed during sleeping hours.
