To correct a bite in an adult, it is necessary to undergo a procedure with a long period of orthodontic treatment. Long-term treatment is due to the fact that in adulthood, a person has completed the growth of teeth and the formation of the bone tissue of the jaw. Dense bone is more difficult to repair, so moving teeth during orthodontic treatment takes a lot of time.
Before orthodontic treatment, as a rule, the oral cavity is sanitized: carious cavities are filled, damaged fillings are removed, and the gums are treated. All infections present in the oral cavity are eliminated: poorly cured canals, periodontal pockets, roots of extracted teeth, etc. This procedure takes a lot of time.
The most effective method of orthodontic treatment in adults is considered to be the braces system. The bracket system is an orthodontic appliance made of several components, which is not removed for a long period. The main elements of the device are braces and an arch that is attached to the braces. This method helps to correct the bite even in people over 30 years old.
Braces are defined onlays that are attached to the teeth using a special composite cement. The archwire is needed to create the direction of the teeth correction. The most famous brace systems are external or vestibular apparatus. They are attached to the outer surface of the teeth. The big drawback of this system is its obvious visibility. This is not suitable for everyone.
For those who are not satisfied with a clear demonstration of their problem, another bracket system, called lingual (lingual), was developed, which is not so noticeable.
The lingual bracket system will help to fix the teeth by fixing on the inner (lingual) surface of the teeth. During the application of this method of correcting teeth, no one will be able to guess about the orthodontic treatment undergoing. The main disadvantage of the lingual bracket system is the high cost of technology, in comparison with traditional systems.
