Orthodontic Devices: What are they?

Orthodontic devices are instrumental in correcting dental issues and improving oral health. At Smile Perfection, we are proud to offer state-of-the-art orthodontic devices that are effective, comfortable, and aesthetically pleasing.

Retention Appliances

Our retention appliances are designed to maintain the results achieved through orthodontic treatment. By wearing a retention appliance, you can prevent your teeth from shifting back to their original positions, ensuring long-lasting outcomes. 

Our skilled orthodontic team will provide you with a custom-fit retention appliance that suits your needs and helps you maintain your beautiful smile.

Myobrace

Myobrace is a pre-orthodontic treatment option that focuses on correcting oral habits and promoting proper jaw development. 

By addressing issues such as crowded teeth, incorrect jaw position, and mouth breathing, Myobrace helps align your teeth naturally. 

This innovative device guides your jaw and facial muscles into proper alignment, resulting in improved aesthetics and enhanced oral function.

Tongue Gate

Achieving correct tongue posture is crucial for optimal oral health. Our tongue gate device helps train the tongue to rest in the correct position, ensuring proper swallowing and preventing issues such as tongue thrusting. 

By using a tongue gate, you can enhance your orthodontic treatment outcomes and maintain long-term oral health.

Maxillary Expansion Alliance

If you have narrow dental arches or crowded teeth, our maxillary expansion devices can help. Through gentle and gradual widening of the upper jaw, these devices create more space for proper teeth alignment. 

Maxillary expansion not only improves your smile’s aesthetics but also enhances breathing and overall oral function.

Space Maintainer

Preserving the gaps left by prematurely lost baby teeth is crucial for proper tooth eruption and alignment. 

Our space maintainers are custom-made devices that prevent neighboring teeth from shifting, ensuring there is enough room for permanent teeth to emerge. 

By using a space maintainer, you can protect your child’s oral health and avoid potential orthodontic issues in the future.

Aftercare

Proper aftercare is essential for maintaining the effectiveness of orthodontic devices and ensuring optimal treatment outcomes. Here are some general guidelines for aftercare:

Oral Hygiene:

  • Brush your teeth thoroughly after every meal and floss daily to remove any food particles and plaque. Pay extra attention to cleaning around the orthodontic device, such as brackets, wires, and other components.
  • Use a soft-bristle toothbrush and a fluoride toothpaste recommended by your orthodontist.
  • Consider using interdental brushes, floss threaders, or water flossers to clean hard-to-reach areas between your teeth and around the orthodontic device.

Diet and Nutrition:

  • Avoid hard and sticky foods that can dislodge or damage the orthodontic device. Examples include chewing on ice, hard candies, popcorn kernels, and sticky candies.
  • Minimize or avoid consuming foods and drinks that are high in sugar, as they can contribute to tooth decay and gum problems.
  • Cut fruits and vegetables into smaller, bite-sized pieces to reduce the risk of damaging the device.

Follow Orthodontist’s Instructions:

  • Adhere to any specific instructions provided by your orthodontist regarding wearing and caring for your orthodontic device.
  • Attend scheduled follow-up appointments for adjustments and progress evaluations.

Sports and Physical Activities:

  • If you participate in contact sports or activities with a risk of oral injury, wear a mouthguard to protect your teeth and the orthodontic device.
  • Consult with your orthodontist regarding the use of a suitable mouthguard for your specific orthodontic treatment.

Handling and Maintenance:

  • Handle your orthodontic device with care to avoid bending or breaking any components.
  • If any part of the device becomes loose or damaged, contact your orthodontist for advice and necessary repairs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Orthodontic devices are used to straighten teeth and improve the alignment of the jaw. They can be used to correct a variety of dental problems, including crooked teeth, gaps between teeth, and overbites.

There are many different types of orthodontic devices, including:

  • Metal braces: These are the most traditional type of orthodontic device. They consist of metal brackets that are bonded to the teeth and connected by wires.
  • Invisalign: This is a clear alternative to metal braces. It consists of a series of clear aligners that are worn over the teeth.
  • Lingual braces: These braces are placed behind the teeth, so they are not visible.
  • Hawley retainers: These retainers are worn after orthodontic treatment to keep the teeth in place.

The length of orthodontic treatment varies depending on the severity of the dental problem. It typically takes 12-24 months to straighten teeth with braces. Invisalign treatment may take a shorter amount of time, depending on the individual’s needs.

Orthodontic treatment is not typically painful. However, there may be some discomfort during the first few days after braces are put on. This discomfort can be relieved by taking over-the-counter pain relievers.

There are many benefits to orthodontic treatment, including:

  • Improved appearance: Straight teeth can make you look and feel more confident.
  • Improved oral health: Straight teeth are easier to clean, which can help to prevent cavities and gum disease.
  • Improved speech: Straight teeth can help you speak more clearly.
  • Improved self-esteem: Straight teeth can give you a boost in self-esteem.

If you are interested in getting orthodontic treatment, the first step is to book an appointment with an orthodontist. During the consultation, the orthodontist will assess your dental needs and discuss the different treatment options available to you. They will also be able to give you an estimate of the cost of treatment.

Avoid hard and sticky foods that can dislodge or damage the appliance. Examples include chewing on ice, hard candies, popcorn kernels, and sticky candies. 

 

Minimize or avoid consuming foods and drinks that are high in sugar or can stain your teeth, as they can contribute to tooth decay and discoloration. 

Refrain from biting on pens, pencils, or other objects, as this can cause damage to the appliance or create unnecessary pressure on your teeth. 

Be cautious when participating in physical activities or contact sports to prevent injury to your mouth. Wearing a mouthguard can provide additional protection.

Proper care and maintenance of your orthodontic appliance are essential for achieving successful treatment outcomes. Here are some general tips: 

 

  1. Brush your teeth thoroughly after every meal and floss daily to remove any food particles and plaque. 
  2. Pay extra attention to cleaning around the brackets, wires, and other components of your appliance. 
  3. Use a soft-bristle toothbrush and a fluoride toothpaste that is recommended by your orthodontist. 
  4. Consider using interdental brushes, floss threaders, or water flossers to clean hard-to-reach areas between your teeth and around the appliance. 
  5. Avoid using excessive force or aggressive brushing, as it may damage the appliance.
  1. Fixed Appliances: These are devices that are bonded or cemented to your teeth and cannot be removed by the patient. Examples include traditional braces, lingual braces, and some specialized appliances like palatal expanders.
  2. Removable Appliances: These devices can be taken out by the patient for cleaning and eating. They are usually used for mild to moderate orthodontic issues. Examples include clear aligners (such as Invisalign), retainers, and functional appliances like the Twin Block or Bionator. 
  3. Functional Appliances: These appliances are designed to modify the growth and development of the jaws. They are often used to correct skeletal discrepancies and improve bite alignment. Examples include Herbst appliances, Forsus springs, and MARA (Mandibular Anterior Repositioning Appliance). 
  4. Retention Appliances: These appliances are used after orthodontic treatment to maintain the achieved results and prevent relapse. They are typically custom-made and can be removable or fixed.
  5. Specialized Appliances: There are various specialized appliances used to address specific orthodontic issues. These appliances include expansion appliances, headgear, functional appliances, aligners, retainers, space maintainers and splints.

I wouldn't recommend him to anyone. It's either he doesn't know what he's doing or he's chasing to claim more from medical aid. My daughter went there on Monday to take out a wisdom tooth (it was not painful at the time). He injected her on the gums and sent her for x-ray afterwards. After x-ray results that's when he saw that actually he can't take out that tooth but four of them have be removed from the theater. I mean who starts with injection before x-rays 🤷? You can't start with the last procedure and end with the first one. If he started with what comes first he could have seen that there was no need to inject the poor child. So he just caused my daughter an unnecessary pain cos the tooth was not taken out. He injected her for fun nje. So if you love yourself, don't even try going there. On top of that, when I enquired about this, he was so rude to the core!!!! And unprofessional at the same time. I will book my daughter to someone who knows her/his story,.
