The effective treatment of an open bite with invisible braces without oral surgery.
An open bite occurs when the upper and lower teeth do not close properly, resulting in a gap between the incisors. This can have a number of causes, including genetic factors, thumb sucking, incorrect swallowing pattern or jaw misalignment. If left untreated, an open bite can lead to TMJ problems, jaw discomfort and even speech difficulties.
Traditionally, treatment of an open bite has often been associated with oral surgery correction. However, this procedure is invasive, associated with risks and a longer recovery time. Fortunately, orthodontics today offers a non-surgical solution for people with an open bite - invisible braces.
Invisible braces, also known as transparent aligners, are a method of orthodontics that makes it possible to correct misaligned teeth discreetly and effectively. Unlike conventional braces, it is made of transparent plastic and is virtually invisible. This makes them particularly attractive for adults and teenagers who want to correct their teeth discreetly.
The treatment of an open bite with invisible braces involves several steps. First, a comprehensive diagnosis is made, during which your tooth and jaw structure are analyzed in detail. Based on this information, the orthodontist designs an individual treatment plan for you. Then, custom-made transparent aligners are fabricated, which gradually move your teeth into the correct position. Information about invisible braces in our office
The advantage of invisible braces is their flexibility. Unlike traditional braces, transparent aligners are removable, which means you can take them off to eat and take care of your teeth. This allows you to eat without restrictions and easily maintain oral hygiene during treatment. However, the aligners should be worn most of the day for maximum results.
During your treatment with invisible braces, you will visit your orthodontist regularly to get new aligners and check the progress of your treatment. Each new aligner brings your teeth one step closer to the correct bite position. The total duration of treatment varies depending on the severity of the open bite, but it usually takes a few months to a year.
Invisible braces offer an aesthetically pleasing and effective solution for the treatment of an open bite, and in the majority of patients who have come to us for treatment, without the need for oral surgery.
Conclusion: An open bite can be treated effectively with invisible braces without oral surgery. The transparent aligners allow discreet correction of the misalignment of the teeth and offer flexibility in everyday life. Consult a qualified orthodontist to find out if invisible braces are the right solution for your open bite.
