Orthodontic:Orthodontic Braces - Top Ten Myths

By John Roney

The Myobrace is a new concept in orthodontic treatment. The design can handle the alignment of front teeth, the positioning of the jaw while correcting the causes of these problems. The design and style of the treatment used is meant to retrain muscles from the lower and upper chin to correct undesirable eating and breathing, thus solving most of the tooth problems.

The Myobrace has two main elements, a soft flexible outer area, and DynamiCore TM a hard inner core. The pre-influenced arch form of DynamiCore TM forms arch lengthening by rectifying the anterior arch form. Studies show that using braces to correct dental irregularities reduces damage to a root of the teeth. This orthodontic procedure employs the occasional force process as it merely requires to be donned for a couple of hours each day, also throughout the night. The amount of teenagers has nightmares off eradicating braces, their retainers, just about any tooth removal procedures, shattered wires plus painfully limited elastics for a straightforward design that is definitely worn when you are still fresh and growing speedily rather than in the difficult teenage life.

Once I get my braces off, my teeth will stay straight forever- Getting your teeth straight and your bite right is just half the battld. Keeping your teeth straight after getting your braces off is the rest of the battle. Teeth are connected to the bone by elastic fibers. As the teeth are moved into their new straightened positions, some elastic fibers are stretched and others are compressed. After your braces are removed, these elastic fibers will tend to push and pull your teeth back towards their original position. That is why retainers are required when braces are removed to keep your teeth straight. Any overbite is bad-I f I had a dollar for every time a new patient complained of having an overbite, only to be told that their overbite is normal, if could probably have bought a car by now. The point is that many patients think that having a mild overbite is a bad thing and this is wrong. People with zero overbite (whose teeth bite together in the front) actually start wearing down their front teeth over time. So a small overbite actually protects the front teeth from wearing down. Of course, a large overbite can be problematic so a small overbite of only two to three millimeters is ideal.

The date that I am supposed to get my braces off is set in stone- When patients are told before treatment that they will be in dental braces for a certain number of years, it is very easy to focus on that date. Usually, an orthodontist can judge from his or her experience what the typical time frame is to finish treatment. However this depends on many factors. Some factors that would slow down treatment include: broken braces, not brushing well, not coming in for regular appointments, and having dense bone. If you want to get your braces off on time, make sure you co-operate by brushing and flossing well, wearing your elastics, and showing up for your regular appointments. It is easy to transfer or switch orthodontists- Though it may just look like braces and wires to you, every orthodontist uses slightly different wires, brackets, and appliances. Sometimes, the wires that one orthodontist uses would not even fit in the braces that another orthodontist uses. Each orthodontist also has his or her own technique in treating each case. For example, in creating that beautiful smile, some orthodontists may focus on correcting a bite problem first while other orthodontists may focus on straightening the teeth first. Sorting out the finances is another difficult part of switching orthodontists because different offices structure their payment plans in different ways. If you switch orthodontists, you probably will end up paying more money than if you had just stayed with one orthodontist.

The unique design of Myobrace is used in all forms of orthodontic treatment and increases the stability of the final result. The use must be at least 2 hours in the whole day and must be worn overnight for a good result. The duration of this procedure is a minimum of 6 to 12 months. Regular monitoring visits are important to measure the progress. Check out your options to braces with an Orthodontic specialist to check out if this alternative is appropriate for your kid and lets them grow smilingly in the healthy way. The Myobrace is available in 6 sizes from 1 to 6. It comes as strips with direct measurement device to use. The measurement is taken from distal, lateral supra to the vestibular band. This gives the size of the device for use in mm and correspondence directly on the scale.
