Orthodontics is a technique that consists of moving the teeth and/or the jawbones in a controlled manner to certain positions in order to solve problems of malpositioned teeth or jaws.
At Asensio Odontología Avanzada, best place for dental tourism, we carry out all kinds of treatments to achieve improvements in your health and dental aesthetics. There are several types of orthodontics, including removable and fixed.
What is fixed orthodontics?
This type of orthodontics has the peculiarity that it cannot be removed by the patient, as is the case with removable orthodontics, such as Invisalign invisible splints. Commonly known as brackets, these are metal pieces attached to the teeth to maintain the arch that is responsible for moving the teeth.
Moreover, there are fixed orthodontics made of ceramic material to achieve the tone of the tooth itself. When placed on the teeth, the brackets are hardly visible, providing an exquisite and differentiated aesthetic from conventional treatment.
How long does orthodontic treatment last?
In general, the orthodontic treatment varies from 6 to 8 months in the simplest cases and up to 24 to 30 months in the most complicated cases.
The duration of the treatment will depend on many factors that must be taken into account, such as the problem to be treated, the type of appliance, how the appliance is cared for, the speed at which the teeth move …
