Dental Braces Canberra
When an individual is referred to an orthodontist, they first have a consultation that includes an examination, a dental history talk, and a review of X-rays. This helps the orthodontist assess if the condition is severe enough to warrant dental braces, and if so, what the most suitable course of action is? Other treatment options like dental braces Canberra may be recommended by an orthodontist if they believe they will better meet the patient’s needs.
During dental braces placement, a cheek retractor keeps the teeth exposed and dry. The teeth are polished first to guarantee good bracket adhesion, then air-dried.
To bond the brackets, the front surfaces of the teeth are coated with a conditioner for 30 seconds. Then the teeth are dried, and an adhesive primer is used to help the bonding process.
The brackets are cemented to the teeth in predefined places. A high-intensity light hardens the brackets into position once the extra cement is removed. In this step, the dental archwires are installed.
The complete bonding and archwire placement process can take 10-20 minutes. The time it takes to correctly arrange the components to treat the person’s individual condition.
For the first 4 to 6 hours after your session, you should anticipate feeling tightness, which usually evolves into pain. The archwires strain the teeth, causing pain. Over-the-counter (OTC) pain medications are recommended. The pain should go away in three to five days.
Dental Braces Canberra can be removed with a simple and reasonably painless procedure after the orthodontist concludes your treatment. The brackets are removed from your teeth safely and gently. Dental Braces Canberra is only one of the many services we offer at Weston Dentistry, including:
