In many cases the citizens of the Region of Murcia They go to their dentist to discuss the possibility of orthodontic treatment, who will determine what the patient's needs are.
In some cases, the fundamental problem may be teeth that are too crowded, due to a lack of space, while in others, we may find that the teeth in the upper jaw are too far forward in relation to the teeth in the lower jaw (what orthodontists call class two), or the other way round (known as class three, which is characterised by the lower teeth being too far forward in relation to the upper teeth).
On this basis, it is common for the experienced orthodontist consider treatment with one or the other dental technique, depending on the patient's needs. For example, in cases where the upper and lower teeth are well connected, but there is a large overcrowding, the orthodontist may recommend a self-ligating bracket.
On the other hand, when the greatest movement is required to coordinate the teeth of the two jaws, the orthodontist usually opts for other brackets, such as the ones we present in today's post, the Tip-Edge Plus brackets, which have a series of differentiating characteristics that allow them to correct Class II and III dental problems more easily than other systems.
How does it work? TipEdge Plus?
These brackets have two slots:
- A main groove that allows the crown of the tooth to tilt during movement, thanks to its anterior and posterior tilt, a unique system in the world of orthodontics.
- A secondary slot (also exclusive to this type of brackets) that allows the insertion of a second archwire to straighten the roots of the teeth once the dental class has been corrected and to finish the treatment effectively and quickly.
For which cases is it useful?
This is the system with the most powerful mechanics on the market for cases where complex tooth class correction or dentoalveolar compensation of a surgical case is required.
Therefore, if you wish to avoid orthognathic surgery, or if you have a severe Class II or III requiring tooth extractions and would prefer to compensate your occlusion rather than have teeth extracted, consult an orthodontist experienced in this technique to see what it can do for you.
