There are many modern methods of orthodontic treatment, but the maximum effect is also achieved with the help of braces. The design is fixed to the entire dentition. It can only be fixed at the top or bottom. However, dentists say that it is correct to install braces on both jaws, since wearing only one design after the completion of the correction can provoke violations of the opposite dentition.
Why pairing braces is important
paired bracesMostly malocclusion is characterized by defects in only one dentition or jaw, but dentists still recommend correction with two bracket systems. this is due to the physiological processes of the body.
Installation of an orthodontic structure on one jaw leads to a gradual displacement of the teeth relative to only this dentition. After removing the braces, there may be a problem with the non-closing of the two jaws relative to each other, since the correction did not take into account the features of the opposite dentition.
To avoid such consequences, orthodontists initially recommend placing braces on both jaws at once. Thus, malocclusion will be corrected immediately for the individual anatomical features of the patient’s teeth and jaw.
When you need to place braces on two jaws
Treatment with braces is prescribed after preliminary diagnostics, which confirms bite defects. Dentists recommend correcting the bite during adolescence, when the bone tissue is not yet sufficiently strong and amenable to correction. In addition, signs of malocclusion appear after the change of milk teeth to all permanent ones.
Paired braces should be placed when teeth defects are detected on one or both jaws:
- displacement of the tooth relative to the entire row;
- unnatural position of the tooth;
- gaps between two front ones or between all units;
- incorrect position of the jaws to each other;
- asymmetry or defects in the profile of the face;
- upcoming implantation;
- diseases of the jaw joint;
- consequences of jaw injury.
If braces are installed, the price of a construction for 2 jaws will be significantly higher than for one system. But it should be borne in mind that if after removing some of the braces there are deviations in the ratio of the two jaws, then fixation of the systems on both dental rows will still be required. In this case, money and time will be spent on re-full treatment.
When is it better to give up braces
For many decades, braces have remained the best orthodontic constructions that can cope with even complex bite defects. But the installation of braces is not always permissible. There are contraindications to this method of correction, which refer not only to dental, but also to other concomitant pathologies.
It is contraindicated to put braces on 2 jaws in the following cases:paired braces
- overly narrow jaw;
- bone diseases;
- endocrinological diseases;
- mental illness;
- infectious processes in the oral cavity and a number of systemic infections;
- any oncological diseases.
- The orthodontist does not start bite treatment if the patient has dental diseases. If the pathologies are temporary and treatable, then the oral cavity must be sanitized beforehand. Also, for the purpose of prophylaxis, professional teeth cleaning is performed in advance, which allows to prevent the development of caries during the bite treatment period.
What braces are
Any model of construction can be installed on both jaws of the patient. They are distinguished by the material of manufacture, the place of fixation and the presence / absence of ligatures. The appropriate model of braces is determined not only at the request of the patient and the cost of the orthodontic product, but also according to the indications.
Modern models of braces are distinguished by maximum aesthetic performance. Vestibular structures, which are fixed on the front side of the teeth, can be made of different materials, including translucent ones, so they are practically invisible even with a smile. Lingual systems installed on the teeth from the side of the tongue are especially popular. They are not at all visible to other people and the interlocutor.
For patients who care about the aesthetics of a smile and comfortable correction, orthodontists recommend installing ligature-free structures that do not have fixing locks, making the system safe, comfortable and even more invisible. Ligature designs have a lower cost, so they also remain popular.
The main difference between braces is the material. In case of minor defects, installation of products of medium strength is permissible, but complex defects can be eliminated only with classic metal braces.
Braces are made from materials:artificial sapphire
- artificial sapphire;
- metal alloy (gold plated steel).
The cost of orthodontic corrective structures can vary greatly depending on the manufacturing material. In addition, for example, plastic, sapphire and ceramic systems cannot withstand heavy loads. But such braces do not spoil the smile. For these reasons, dentists recommend using a composite structure, when transparent or translucent systems are installed on the smile zone, and correctors made of metal or its alloy are fixed on the back teeth.
The result of correction and the duration of treatment is influenced by several factors, including the quality of the installation. Braces for both jaws do not require any special manipulations. The procedure follows the standard scheme. The only difference is the adjustment of the adjustment of the force of the pressure of the arch of the braces on the teeth, since mainly only one jaw has defects.
Installation of braces on two jaws is an effective method for eliminating malocclusion. To restore the anatomically correct position of the jaws and teeth, an integrated approach is required, which is provided by paired orthodontic systems.
