Visit the orthodontist and installation of the device

Before anything else, the first visit to the orthodontist should be performed. It will examine your teeth and tell you if you must wear a device or not. If your teeth have only a very slight delay, you may have no need for equipment. However, if this difference is greater, it will offer you certainly bring a camera. Depending on the condition of your teeth, it can make a diagnosis (what type of device, how long). You will then return to the orthodontist to make a mold of your teeth. It is based on the shape of your jaw which will then make your device. It will then explain what camera you will (full set of rings connected by a single wire or wireless) on your next visit.

The next visit is finally good: we will install your device. The banding takes a little more time than a single thread. Everything depends on the type of correction you need. The pose is absolutely painless, the most difficult is to remain motionless throughout the operation. No anesthesia is practiced, you can leave immediately after your visit. You can eat normally again, the unit will not interfere at all chewing.


Routine visits: Control your teeth

You will return to the orthodontist regularly (about every 6 months, sometimes even more often) so that it performs a check and track the progress of your teeth since you wear your device. This benefit to tighten the rings of your machine, this is what allows the camera to align the teeth together. These steps will be required for each visit. It is possible that you may feel a slight pain in the day as follows: it is normal. The pressure exerted by the device on your teeth can be a bit painful in the days, paracetamol is usually sufficient to relieve pain. These visits should take place at regular intervals until the orthodontist decides to withdraw the unit.

The orthodontist will tell you when you finally remove your device when it deems that the teeth are aligned and they are not likely to warp again. This tour lasts a little longer because he has to remove the rings one by one. You must remain motionless, as when installing the device the first time. It causes no pain, you can eat just after without problem. There is no anesthesia either.

Hygiene and Dental

Port of a device (but not only!) Obviously implies good dental hygiene. Obviously, it is essential to unwashed teeth before each visit to the orthodontist, and, whether the installation of the device or a simple visit. It is also recommended to avoid as much as possible foods such as chewing gum or Malabar that stick and can get stuck in the rings of the unit. Of course, do not forget to brush your teeth after each meal, 3 times a day ideally. Port of the device does not prevent the passage of the brush on and between the teeth. For those who do not wear a device that does not feel the need, regular visits (once a year minimum) to the dentist are recommended even if you do not notice any particular problem. In fact, tooth decay or bad placement of teeth does not detect early, and often occur when pain is that it is already too late! Do not hesitate to watch your teeth, device or not, because the permanent teeth are the ones you keep all your life!
