How is braces treatment done? What should be considered during treatment?

In addition, patients are offered treatment options such as metal, ceramic and glass brackets, which have various advantages over each other.
When is braces treatment done?
The recommendation of the International Orthodontic Association recommends that all children aged 7 years undergo an orthodontic check-up. In this way, developmental problems can be identified at an early stage and conditions that require preventive intervention such as placeholders can be diagnosed. Early treatment, if foreseeable, is very valuable in terms of preventing major problems in the future. Generally, treatment is not started before the age of 10-12. Although no treatment is given at the first appointment, the examination and x-rays taken are very valuable for subsequent appointments in terms of monitoring growth and development.

The best results in orthodontics are the treatments provided by the correction of developmental irregularities. For this reason, it is very important to have the first examination as early as 7 years of age. Because in this age period, there is still a great growth and development potential in the face area.
Orthodontic treatment in adults
Orthodontic treatment in adults is possible at any age. It is never too late to experience the positive aspects of having a beautiful smile. In adults, there may be displacements of other teeth or previous irregularities due to tooth extraction.

All these problems can be easily solved with orthodontic treatment and sometimes with the cooperation of other branches of dentistry. With the developing technology in recent years, its easy application in adults has resulted in an increase in the use of braces.
What should be considered in the treatment of braces?
Wire treatment is a process that takes a long time, requires patience and needs attention. The orthodontist must explain the necessary information and treatment process to the patient in detail, and the patient must follow what the doctor says. Otherwise, you may not get the desired result at the end of this process. After the braces are placed, you may feel pain for a while. However, if the pain continues, you should see your doctor. During the treatment, some foods and beverages should be avoided. Among these, there are hard foods such as apples, pears, the hard side of bread, chips and nuts. Sticky foods such as jelly beans, Turkish delight, caramel chocolate, chewing gum, alcoholic and carbonated beverages can displace the brackets in your teeth and leave you in a difficult situation during the treatment. It is necessary to make your food choices for soft, juicy and easily digestible foods to prevent damage to the wires. Persons using braces should protect the mouth area against hard impacts from the outside and take care not to break the brackets. Those who do sports, those who are active in fields such as football and basketball, should take a break from sports for a while, considering the possibility of a blow while using braces.
braces care
It is important to avoid using a hard brush and brushing by pressing while brushing your teeth so that the brackets are not damaged during braces treatment. For this reason, it is recommended to choose a soft brush and brush it with light movements. Using interdental brushes to clean between the brackets will help. Single-end hardened dental floss can also be used for the same purpose.
