Ideal requirements of Orthodontic arch wires

Orthodontic treatment with arch wires has got inevitable features of wires that has to be remembered and some of these features are given below:-

  • Spring Back:It is the measure of how far a wire can be deflected without causing permanent deformation.It is also called elastic deflection.
  • Stiffness:The presence of a low stiffness provides the ability to apply lower forces and a more constant force over time.
  • Formability:The arch wire has to exhibit high formability so as to bend into desired configuration such as coils,loops etc without fracturing the wire.
  • Resilience:It is the amount of force the wire can withstand before permanent deformation.
  • Biocompatibility and Environmental stability:Orthodontic arch wires should exhibit resistance to tarnish and corrosion and should be non-toxic.The material should maintain its desirable properties for extended periods of time after manufacture.
  • Joinability:The wire should be amenable to soldering and welding
  • Friction:The Arch wire should provide least friction at the wire-bracket interface.

Different types of Brackets

Brackets act as handlers to transmit the force from the active components to the teeth.Brackets have one or more slots that accept the arch wire.Brackets can be available in different designs and can be classified in a number of ways.

  • Edge type of bracket:Brackets used in the Edgewise and Straight Wire technique have a horizontal slot facing labially.These brackets with rectangular slots are so called because they accept wires of rectangular cross-section with the larger dimension being horizontal.These brackets provide greater control over tooth movement and do not permit tipping of teeth
  • Ribbon Arch Brackets:They are brackets which possess a vertical slot facing the occlusal or gingival direction.This kind of bracket is used with round wires to bring about tipping of teeth in labio-lingual as well as mesio-distal direction.These are used in Begg fixed appliance.
  • Weldable and Bondable brackets:Weldable brackets can be welded on to bands which in turn are cemented around the teeth and Bondable brackets can be bonded directly over the enamel.The under surface of bondable brackets has a mesh or grooves to help in interlocking with the adhesive while weldable brackets have a metal flange that can be welded to the band.
  • Metallic Brckets:Steel brackets are most commonly used of this type.The advantages are:-
  1. They can be recycled and sterilized
  2. They resist deformation and fracture
  3. They exhibit the least friction at the wire bracket interface
  • Ceramic Brackets:They are made up of aluminium oxides or Zirconium oxides.They are dimensionally stable,durable and resist staining in the oral environment but they are brittle and to compensate,their size is increased which tends to increase their bulk and also exhibit greater friction at the wire bracket compared to metallic brackets.
  • Plastic Brackets:They are mostly made up of Poly carbonates which are mainly meant to increase the esthetic value and they are available both in coloured or transparent forms.The main disadvantage is the friction between plastic brackets and metal arch wire is very high.

Gingivectomy and Gingivoplasty dental treatment procedure

Gingivectomy and Gingivoplasty dental treatment procedure

Thorough tooth cleaning is needed prior to the treatment of Gingivectomy or Gingivoplasty. This cleaning helps to remove the microbes and calculus from the gaps around the teeth. A periodontist also gives some dental care tips that help you to take care of your teeth after the surgery. Read more

It’s Never Too Late To Get Braces

When most people think of braces, they commonly associate them with pimply, preteen or teenage kids with a hunk of metal in their mouth. Braces are often seen as just another element to this painfully awkward stage in life, somewhat of a necessity to growing up. What if you are older and still haven’t had them, though? Maybe your parents couldn’t afford them or you just refused to add to the horrors of high school. Whatever the reason, your teeth are crooked and you aren’t a big fan of them. Is it too late to get those braces you avoided in your teenage years? Never. Here’s why. Read more

6-month Orthodontic braces-Its treatment and reviews

Orthodontic braces

6-month smiles or 6-month orthodontic braces treatment are very effective to most of the orthodontic complaints in a very short period of 6 months.

The common orthodontic problems are crowding (teeth are closer to each other), spacing(space between teeth), overbite, underbite, overjet(bulging out of the front teeth), crossbite, open bite, misplaced midline (center lines of upper and lower teeth misalign). All these orthodontic complaints can be rectified in only a short period of six months.

Merits of 6-month orthodontic braces

  • wires are small,tooth colored and hence virtually almost invisible.
  • Treatment time period is comparatively very less
  • Total treatment cost is almost half of traditional or train track braces or invisiline braces

Treatment methods

At your first visit to the orthodontist he will take your impressions of your teeth and sometimes also take some photographs,X-rays which are the usual procedures.Then according to your conditions of your teeth the orthodontist will suggest you about the 6-month smiles treatment and tell you also about the cost of the treatment.

Then you will be fitted with the 6-month braces which consists of special wires,white brackets that are made from 6-month smiles laboratory in the United States Of America.The treatment using these braces are a complete success in America.

Usually you have to visit to the orthodontist every month inorder to tighten the wires of the braces which is a very simple procedure and takes only upto 10-15 minutes.

6-month orthodontic braces are using nickel-titanium wires along with the white brackets and so there is only less chance to visible it properly.It can be only visible at close-up.So there is no need of any embarrassment for wearing this braces.

Every braces have some discomforts and pain at the starting of the treatment and then you will be used to it.Orthodontists will prescribe you to take some pain killers like Ibuprofen or Paracetamol at the beginning.

you have to put retainers after the completion of the treatment inorder to reduce the risk of relapse. The teeth has the tendency to retain the natural position after the treatment, so the orthodontists will provide you with retainers like night time removable retainers or permanently bonded retainers on the back surfaces of your teeth.
