Traditional techniques for correcting primary teeth bite - plates, partial brackets, trainers - this is always a compromise between efficiency, comfort and visibility. Recently, a decent alternative to the usual techniques has appeared on the market for children's orthodontics - children's aligners, “flexics”, from FlexiLigner.
Children’s aligners are transparent caps made of hypoallergenic plastic to correct bite and uneven teeth, starting from 6 years. They evenly move the teeth in all planes and ensure the correct growth of future permanent teeth.
When developing a children's line, important features of a children's bite were taken into account, such as tooth turnover, their small size, active bone growth. An important feature of the “flexics” is that they can be worn without prior preparation of teeth and additional fixings.
Cap kit is made individually using three-dimensional computer modeling technology. Aligners change to new ones about once a month, and each time the child and parents can see how the teeth are straightened out according to the difference between the caps. The future outcome of the treatment can be seen immediately after 3D diagnostics on the virtual model.
Aligners correct many bite pathologies: interdental gaps, improper tooth arrangement, reverse overjet of incisors. But it is contraindicated in patients with the absence of more than 4 teeth, because they will not be able to properly fix. Also, "flexics" will not cope with serious bite anomalies.
Before starting treatment, you need to undergo an orthodontist consultation, take a 3D picture and impressions.
The impressions are sent to the laboratory, where a virtual model of the jaw and an individual set of caps for treatment are created. At this stage, you can already see what the smile will be at the end of the treatment.
Cap must be worn at least 22 hours a day and removed only during meals and brushing. Aligners change to new ones about once a month, for control examinations it is necessary to visit an orthodontist.
After aligning the teeth with the help of aligners, the result is fixed with the help of removable or fixed retainers. At this time, it is desirable for the patient to periodically undergo control examinations at his orthodontist.
The plates, although more familiar to align teeth, have serious drawbacks, the main of which is low efficiency. In addition, the complex construction of plastic, metal is always very noticeable in the mouth, can interfere with diction, scratch the mucosa or teeth. Therefore, children often do not wear plates without parental control. As a result, the treatment becomes even longer and unproductive.
Little patients are happy to wear comfortable aligners. The main disadvantage of aligners is that they are more expensive than plates. But a noticeable result and comfort justify the difference in price.
Of course, the final decision on the method of treatment is made by the orthodontist on the basis of a diagnosis. Aligners are not suitable for all types of abnormal bite. In some cases, you need to use plates, trainers or brackets.
The correction of the primary teeth bite is the guarantee of the healthy development of the jaw joint and muscles, a beautiful smile and even permanent teeth in the future. Children’s aligners will help make treatment enjoyable for children and parents.
