We are dedicated to improving the quality of life for our patients through exceptional orthodontics care.
At SOIVIP we do orthodontic treatments to children and adults with excellent results. However, the earlier the problem is diagnosed, the better results will be obtained.
What is orthodontics?
Orthodontics is the specialty of dentistry that treats the malposition of the dentomaxillary structures.
Children’s orthodontics helps diagnose problems at an early age, reducing the possibility of future extractions. Unlike adults, children can easily work on the jawbone as it is still growing.
The ideal age to start orthodontic treatment is in childhood, at 7 years old.
The patient must attend several sessions. In the former, their dentomaxillary characteristics are evaluated and some details are corrected, such as caries, if they exist.
Occasionally, some adult patients have teeth removed to get the crowded teeth to separate. We always avoid having to do extractions but sometimes, it is the only option to save space. Extractions are rarely performed in children since what is done is to stimulate the growth of the jaws.
The duration of orthodontic treatment will depend on the type of treatment and the type of malposition. In general, it can range from about 6 months to 24 or 36 months. Longer cases are due to severe bite failure and / or a high degree of dental crowding.
What are the orthodontic techniques that we apply at SOIVIP?
There are several techniques that we use at SOIVIP.
This orthodontic system is an alternative to braces. With Invisalign we use clear plastic aligners that fit over the teeth to gradually align them over time. It is a simple and very comfortable system to use with which excellent results are obtained. The plastic aligners are custom made for each patient and are changed every two weeks.
This orthodontic system is also known as “inside braces” or lingual orthodontics. The system is placed on the inner surface of the teeth so the appearance of the smile is not affected. Its results are very good.
Although if they are visible, the result that patients obtain is excellent. The bracket system adheres to the teeth to correct malposition failures that, in addition to affecting dental aesthetics, also cause some problems due to bite failures.
