Types of orthodontics

Within this discipline of the world of dentistry, you can find different kinds of treatments with a greater or lesser purpose that we will detail below.

Orthodontics with brackets

When we speak of brackets, we refer to a type of fixed orthodontic appliance to improve both the position of the teeth and any defect in the jaws. They are also responsible for correcting chewing or what is known as dental crowding.

Thanks to the braces orthodontic treatment it is possible to move any dental piece to the correct situation.

These devices carry a fixed part (hence its name of Fixed Orthodontics) which is composed of circuit breakers, as well as some types of arches. The other part is always modified depending on the needs of each case through braces or bands.

Any type of patient can be submitted to it regardless of age. We can differentiate the brackets depending on the type of material used. Namely:

  • Invisible brackets: as its name indicates are transparent devices. The duration of treatment using these brackets is less than the rest.
  • Aesthetics: they are usually made with ceramic sapphire mainly.
  • Metallic: they are the most used orthodontic appliance of all in terms of brackets. They are cheaper than the rest.

Ortodoncia Invisible Invisalign

They are practically imperceptible to the human eye since they are a type of totally colorless and transparent splints. In addition, it is removable, so the person can remove it for proper hygiene.

It is, without a doubt, the most demanded orthodontic treatment currently. In addition, Invisalign Invisible Orthodontics has another type of benefits such as these:

Practical and hygienic treatment. It is a removable orthodontics and therefore, the patient can wear a suitable oral hygiene without any problem.

Lingual Orthodontics

In this orthodontic class, the brackets used are placed on the inside of each tooth to be treated, making it more difficult to detect by the rest of the people.

It is especially indicated for all those people who do not want to use orthodontic appliances that are visible.

Ortodoncia Lingual

This lingual orthodontics has many benefits, among which we can find the following:

It is a very easy and comfortable orthodontic to wear, since when the brackets are located on the inside of the tooth, they do not bother at all.

And, again, being an orthodontics that is placed on the inside of the teeth, if any type of discoloration occurs they will not be visible at any time.

Sapphire Orthodontics

In this orthodontics brackets are made of sapphire, a highly translucent and transparent material. They are a type of brackets that are very resistant and do not stain, regardless of the type of diet and drinks you drink.

Its advantages

Being made in sapphire will go completely unnoticed with respect to the human eye, so you can smile in public without any problems.

It is a very comfortable orthodontic to wear and without risk.

It has results as similar or better to metal brackets.

The sapphire is a highly resistant element so it is quite complicated and they can break.
