Usually already at the age of 6-7 years it becomes clear that something is wrong with a bite, for example, teething teeth are standing at large intervals, or vice versa, too tight, or turned to the side. Sometimes teething is delayed: on one side there is a tooth, on the other there isn’t. In such cases, it is worthwhile to appear as an orthodontist, because it is often quite simple and inexpensive procedures and only a few months to correct the incipient anomaly.
If you are over 40, you will need from one and a half to three years. More specifically, only a specialist can say. In our clinic, this is Olga Valentinovna Bulekova, an orthodontist with more than 15 years of experience, a candidate of medical sciences.
It solves any bite problems and works with all modern orthodontic appliances - removable, fixed, combined (inviziline kappa, “invisible braces” - transparent or white arches, braces that are installed on the inside of the mouth and others).
Naturally, the plan and method of treatment is made after consultation and diagnosis. Orthodontics is an exact science, based on mathematical calculations that allow you to assess the situation, understand the causes of the defect and decide how to correct it.
Of course, there are some abnormalities that the orthodontist cannot correct without a maxillofacial surgeon. But these violations are not so much.
There are a lot of nuances and tricks in correcting bite, you need to know and foresee a lot, therefore diagnostics, careful mathematical calculation and specialist hands are important. The same tooth may be incorrectly positioned for various reasons. If the same approach to his correction, the result will be different.
Any system - braces, mouthguards, anything - just a tool. To get the desired effect, this tool must be in the hands of an experienced specialist. Olga Valentinovna is one of the strongest orthodontists of our city. She advises both adults and children.
And one more important nuance.
We do not work by standards and do not make everyone a single Hollywood smile. There can be no standard smile at all! On the contrary - sometimes small violations that do not interfere with life give individuality and a certain charm. And if it has no medical complications, we do not recommend treatment with an orthodontist.
