Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry which is responsible for correction place of teeth. it means that if your teeth in the time of closing mouth or chewing, aren`t in suitable place, orthodontics can correct the place of them and solve the problems of order and arrangement and placing of teeth in your jaw; in this situation, patient can eat food with high quality and enjoying of talking and smiling.
In old methods of orthodontic, firstly we had to make a frame of the mouth of a patient and the process of treatment wasn’t predicted, but in digital method, w can predict exactly the process of treatment by scanning, putting inside camera from mouth and make three dimensional models of your teeth in software devices.
1) at first, we create a three-dimensional scan of teeth and gum of patient mouth.
2) in this three-dimensional scan, at first the size of the teeth are determined and analyzed and also the free space, the extra one or needing to a toothpick or not would determine; so the patient can see the position of his/her teeth and compare the differences before orthodontic.
3) we can do the analysis of bones and determine the position of teeth into both jaws and find the existing growing problems in the jaw by two or three-dimensional photos.
4) After doing the above processes, intended positions are put in the jaw and computers can rebuild teeth and gum to determine the appearance after differences in three-dimensional photos.
5) Finally, soft wares can make a short video for patients from the processes of treatment to show all differences in the period of treatment. we will send these photos and videos to patients from our office to show all processes in one video. we can also predict the time of treatment by soft wares although the cooperation of the patient is really important.
we can do the orthodontic treatment by steady and flexible methods. although we can build flexible transparent stents to move teeth or orthodontic treatment or for final retainer; but also can help us for putting brackets on the teeth. the brackets will be determined and arranged, so when a patient is being visited, they will be installed.
this software helps us to build exact bite plaques for controlling the pain of joints and the exact night guard for people who suffer from Brace.
