Each orthodontic treatment is done in detail and individual approach to the patient. It is consistent with the orthodontic needs of each and is based on detailed diagnostics – impressions, making plaster models, photo and X-rays. They are sent to a computer analysis made by the most advanced technology CephX in Las Vegas. The resulting diagnostic data summarizes in a letter to the patient and his parents (child)
With a short computer presentation explaining all aspects of the initial condition of the patient, the prepared treatment options, the expected duration and cost of treatment. The clinician useses fixed devices – braces and various functional mobile devices.
Dr. Beleva works exclusively with braces system “Alexander”, created and developed over 30 years by Professor. “Wick” Alexander, USA. It is one of the most tested, clinically proven systems in orthodontic treatment. The aesthetic equivalent of Alexander braces are sapphire brackets Radiance. They are high quality, discreet and comfortable for patients who prefer them.
Depending on the age of the patient, the orthodontic treatment is divided into several stages:
Early treatment – patients aged 4-9 g.- aims to stop bad habits, to correct severe skeletal discrepancies, clusters of teeth, cross bite. In this stage elastic calipers, mobile devices-lipbumper, hedgear, facial mask, fixed apparatus-braces front tooth, RPE and others can be used. Treatment of adolescents (teenagers) – patients aged 10-16 years – use of braces and extraoral devices (if necessary). Objectives are arrangement of teeth and correct jaw discrepancies.
Age orthodontics – when active skeletal growth of the organism is over after 16, treatment is usually limited to the arrangement of teeth. Orthodontic treatment has no age limit and the usual treatment method includes brackets, but if necessary you may need expansion or extraction of one or more teeth to provide the necessary space for arrangement of the teeth.
Oral hygiene in orthodontic treatment is critical, both for efficiency and speed of treatment and to preserve the tooth (enamel, dentin) and periodontal structures of the tooth (gingiva, ligaments, bone). Therefore, before beginning any treatment, our patients undergo detailed training and motivation in oral hygiene. It teaches not only how and what, but why should clean teeth and braces her during and after treatment. It includes theoretical and practical exercises in podobryavaneeto of brushing and flossing.
