The teeth should be taken care of as early as possible, i.e. from the moment when milk teeth appear. This is extremely important because the correct condition of the jaws depends on the proper development of the jawbone of the jaw, and as a result, affects the later state of health of permanent teeth. You should also control your bite from an early age and if you get a malocclusion you should start treatment. Untreated bite problems can get worse and affect our teeth in the future, which is why the role of parents is so important to recognise these problems quickly in our children.
Most malocclusion are acquired, i.e. most often in the first years of life. Sucking the thumb teat, falling asleep with the teat in the mouth, breathing through the mouth, feeding the bottle with the teat for too long - all this causes disturbed work of the facial muscles, deformation of the jaw bones and, as a consequence, incorrect teeth positioning. The cause of malocclusion may also be lack of care for milk teeth in early childhood, their destruction or premature loss. Controlling the bite of our children should become a habit from an early age of the child. Already noticed changes should prompt us to visit the orthodontist and if necessary to start the treatment process.
Children Removable Braces are a type of device that the patient can put on and take off themselves. It is worn periodically and according to the doctor's instructions, usually about a dozen or so hours a day. The traditional apparatus consists of an acrylic plate, screw and wires. It may contain additional elements such as a spring, acrylic roller. Children Removable Braces treat malocclusion mainly in younger children. The use of removable braces effectively corrects the wrong bite while the young patient is growing and developing. The best effects are observed in children between 4 and 12 years old. Removable braces usually correct small deviations in the position of the teeth, but in the case of developmental malocclusions they correct them with the patient's height.
Removable orthodontic appliances do not allow the tooth to be precisely positioned, moved and rotated. In such cases, the device of choice is a fixed device, as is the case with complex malocclusion. The basic effectiveness of orthodontic appliances is to inhibit the development of malocclusion, alignment of disturbed work of the facial muscles, correction of the shape of the jaw and mandible and correct position relative to each other. That is why they are used as early as possible.
Children Removable Braces can be very diverse in their construction, they can be one or two parts. They are always designed individually for each patient. The treatment process with their use, i.e. the number of hours that the child should spend wearing the device depends not only on the malocclusion, but also on the type of device that will be used.
