Methods of teeth straightening

Teeth straightening can be done in several ways:

with retainers,

with braces (metal, ceramic, non-ligating, sapphire),

with orthodontic dental plates.

Today, one of the most advanced and effective methods of straightening teeth are retainers, which are transparent, aesthetic and practically invisible dental braces.

Important: only an orthodontist can recommend the most suitable method of teeth straightening, taking into account the clinical condition of the patient’s teeth. The most popular methods of orthodontic treatment may not be effective in treating your teeth (for example, these aforementioned teeth braces (removable)).
Before making a decision on the method of straightening your teeth, consult with a specialist.

Why do you need to straighten your teeth?

Crooked teeth lead to an incorrect bite, which changes the symmetry of a person’s face and reduces self-confidence. In the long run, an incorrect bite can lead to much more serious health problems:

the process of eating becomes more difficult – a person cannot bite food properly, trying to do it with side teeth;

—  changed bite causes not only an excessive load on the upper or lower jaw, but also neck, back pains and headache.

faster wear and tear of the teeth occurs, leading to progressive diseases of the teeth and gums;

Orthodontics helps to avoid these problems – correcting an incorrect bite and irregular position of the teeth. Orthodontic treatment is performed for both children and adults.

The earlier the diagnosis of incorrect bite, tooth positions and other orthodontic problems, the easier it is to treat them. At an early age, the bones are still growing, the chewing muscles are not fully developed, so it is much easier to correct the bite and the position of the teeth.

It is recommended to bring children who have started attending the first grades of school to an orthodontist for a preventive examination, then the specialists will be able to assess whether the child needs orthodontic treatment and monitoring of the condition of the teeth and bite.

Orthodontics – the way to a healthy and aesthetic smile! 

How is orthodontic treatment carried out?


First visit to the clinic

First, the doctor performs a digital scan of the mouth. After scanning, all the information is sent to the dental retainers manufacturer Ordoline’s center, where specialists begin to model the future retainer.


A digital treatment plan is prepared

Only good planning ensures the success of the treatment. Specialists of the Ordoline center, together with the clinic’s doctors and orthodontists, start digital modelling of the treatment plan. All layouts of the retainers are laid out, the desired result is predicted and how long it will take to achieve it. The treatment plan is used to produce retainers and track treatment progress.

Each retainer is modelled in a special computer program and prepared for production. Models are inspected and evaluated by a quality specialist. 


The treatment plan is discussed with the patient

Prepared digital treatment plan is shown – the number of visits to the clinic, the change in the position of the teeth, the future smile is presented, which will lead the patient to daily victories. After everything is discussed and approved, the production of retainers is started.


Straightening retainers are produced

First, 3D models of the patient’s teeth are created, which represent the change in the position of each tooth. This way it is possible double-check whether the gumshield will really fit and help you achieve the desired results.

Retainers are made of PET-G thermoplastic polyester, so they are translucent, almost invisible dental braces, comfortable and extremely effective in repositioning teeth.

Each retainer is carefully inspected, trimmed at the patient’s gum line to ensure it is not too tight and is comfortable to wear.

Manufactured retainers are once again inspected by an Ordoline orthodontist and their quality is evaluated.


The teeth straightening process begins

Most of the time, the wearing of retainers is divided into several stages, so in the first stage the patient has to wear only part of them.
At the clinic, the doctor shows how to wear the gumshield correctly, how to perform hygiene and arranges the next visit to the clinic for examination.
Retainers require almost no care  except that you cannot eat solid foods and they must be worn 22 hours a day . If you were still wondering can a gum shield straighten your teeth, the aforementioned process should leave no more doubts.
