How do dental braces work?

Dental braces work by applying constant pressure to the teeth to gradually move them to the correct position within the dental arch. This pressure is adjusted periodically by the orthodontist during maintenance appointments. There are several types of braces, including fixed braces, which are composed of braces, wires and, in some cases, bands that wrap around the teeth, and furniture, which can be removed by the patient for cleaning. The process is based on the ability of bone tissue to remodel itself in response to pressure, allowing the teeth to be reoriented. The treatment time varies according to the complexity of the case, the patient's age and the type of device used, and can last from a few months to several years.

How to place dental braces?

The placement of dental braces begins with a detailed evaluation by the orthodontist, including clinical and imaging tests, to determine the treatment plan. On the day of placement, the teeth are cleaned and dried. For fixed braces, a special glue is applied to the teeth, where the braces (small metal or ceramic pieces) will be attached to them. Then, an orthodontic arch is inserted into the braces, applying the necessary pressure to move the teeth. This arch can be adjusted or replaced during follow-up visits as the teeth move. In some cases, rubber bands or other accessories may be needed to aid in the alignment and correction of the bite. The process is generally painless, although it may cause discomfort or a feeling of pressure in the following days. The success of the treatment also depends on the patient's collaboration in following the orthodontist's guidelines and maintaining good oral hygiene.

Types of Dental Appliances

There are several types of dental braces, adapted to different needs. Fixed metal braces are the most traditional, with braces that are connected by wires to move the teeth. The aesthetic ones, made of ceramic or sapphire, offer a less visible option, harmonizing with the color of the teeth. Lingual braces are attached to the inside of the teeth and are hidden, but may be less comfortable. Self-ligating ones dispense with rubber bands, reducing the number of appointments required. The invisible braces consist of removable transparent aligners, providing total discretion in the treatment. Each type has its specificities, advantages and limitations, and the choice depends on the orthodontic case, expectations and the patient's lifestyle.

Dental braces to correct the jaw

To correct jaw misalignments, the orthodontic team can recommend specific dental appliances, adapted to the case of each patient. Traditional fixed braces can be used to adjust the positioning of the teeth and, consequently, influence the position of the jaw. Palatine expanders are used especially in children and adolescents to widen the upper jaw and correct cross bites. Mandibular advancement devices aim to adjust anteroposterior misalignments, promoting adequate growth of the lower jaw in relation to the upper one. In more complex cases, orthodontics combined with orthognathic surgery can be used, correcting significant discrepancies between the jaws. The choice of braces depends on the detailed evaluation of the orthodontist, considering the patient's age, the type of malocclusion, and the need for bone movement.
