Bite fix is not an easy task, but modern dentistry is able to cope with this problem.
An irregular bite may include pronounced prominent upper or lower jaw, crooked teeth, non-displacement of the upper and lower teeth, as well as pain in the mandibular joints or muscles of the person (for example, if necessary speaking for a long time). All this is an excuse to go for an orthodontist.
Period of bite formation
You can correct a bite and an adult. But it is best for parents to pay attention to the teeth and bite of the child from the youngest age and to adolescence, because it is these years, as a rule, there is a bite formation. In addition, it's a little easier to fix a bite in a child than an adult.
To form the correct bite, the child should be given only anatomical (orthodontic) pacifier to the year, and after a year he should not walk with a dummy and suck his finger.
However, sometimes even the absence of nipples and correct breastfeeding does not save from the development of the wrong bite in the age of teething of teeth or changing them to constant. This is due to the genetic predisposition to the formation of the wrong bite.
The orthodontist will determine the type of irregular bite, the severity of the anomalies, as well as the individual features of the structure of the jaw. For this purpose, panoramic images of the jaw and jaw joints are made. Next, the doctor chooses the bracket system needed to correct a specific problem. This is the best bite remedy for today (as opposed to plates that can destroy the tooth enamel).
Braces are small "locks", which are attached to each tooth with a special adhesive composition. Because of the special grooves in each of the "locks" in them an orthodontic arc is attached. The arc is systematically twisted, leveling teeth as needed more and more.
Braces can be attached to the outer part of the tooth and to the inside. Internal (lingual) braces are convenient because they are practically not visible. Depending on the material they can be ceramic, metal, gold, sapphire, etc.
The time of bite treatment is very long - from six months to three years.
