Dental treatments for orthodontics in Spain

Orthodontics is a type of dental treatment whose function is to diagnose, in the best possible way, any type of alteration in the position and function of our teeth. Thanks to orthodontics we can correct, in the best possible way, any type of alteration or anomaly you have in your mouth.

Fixed orthodontic
  • This type of dental orthodontics in Malaga is one of the most used nowadays, basically because they are the most economical of them all and offer really positive benefits for your dental health. This kind of dental treatment, as a rule, usually consists of 3 different aspects:Unas bandas que trabajan como soporte o retención.
    • Some types of elements known as stainless steel wires, TMA, nitinol…
    • Other auxiliary parts such as contraction springs or ligatures, which may be rubber or wire.
  • This kind of orthodontic treatment has its benefits and drawbacks at the same time. For example, in their favor we should note that they are shorter dental treatments, as well as that you can get to control the intensity and strength that is exercised in the bite. In addition, the help of the patient is not required and does not, under any circumstances, hinder the phonation of the person.
  • The biggest drawback of this type of orthodontics is that it is usually quite annoying when it comes to performing your oral cleaning. These orthodontic braces are also more complicated to fit and are considerably less aesthetic than removable or aesthetic braces. 
  • These removable orthodontic braces are more comfortable than fixed ones, since the patient can remove it at mealtime or when the oral cleaning is done. This kind of treatment in the field of orthodontics is able to improve different kinds of malocclusion in the person with a cheaper price.
  • In addition, it greatly improves the patient’s smile, greatly improving the dental aesthetic itself. It is mainly focused on orthodontics for children or children, although it is also prescribed for orthodontics in adults at the same time.

Types of orthodontics

Within the field of orthodontics, we can find different kinds of orthodontics focused on aligning our teeth or any kind of malocclusion in the best possible way. Let’s take a closer look at them next.

AESTHETIC BRACKETS

Aesthetic brackets are fixed devices that improve dental alignment and bite. They can be made of different materials, such as:

Sapphire brackets: They are transparent, resistant and do not dye. Very popular in modern orthodontics.

Zirconium: They offer resistance and aesthetics, being white similar to dentin. They also resist stains of wine or tobacco.

Porcelain brackets: Previously popular, have been surpassed in quality by zirconium and sapphire.

METAL BRACKETS

Conventional braces are a tough and cost-effective option for correcting dental problems such as bite and crowding. They are ideal for child orthodontics. However, they have an aesthetic disadvantage as they are visible, in contrast to the trend towards more discreet treatments. These brackets do not require ligatures and use clips to move the teeth. They are known as Damon Orthodontics, and offer less pressure and easier cleaning than other types of braces. In addition, frequent visits to the dental clinic are not so necessary.

Invisible or invisalign orthodontics

Transparent orthodontics is a revolutionary treatment that corrects dental problems such as tooth separation, crowding, overbite and cross bite. It is ideal for people working in public. Unlike traditional treatments, it does not use brackets; instead, it uses invisible aligners that are changed every two weeks. They are comfortable, can be removed for eating and brushing, and Clínica Tafur is a specialist in this type of orthodontics.

  • Of all the types of treatment with invisible aligners, this is undoubtedly the most complete of all, hence its English name. Thanks to this, any type of malocclusion that each patient has can be treated. In this case there is no limit in terms of aligners.
  • As its name suggests, this type of treatment with invisible aligners is clearly focused for the smallest of the house, with which it is possible to correct the teeth that are about to leave. In this case also use aligners unlimited form.
  • The treatment usually lasts a maximum of one and a half years. In addition, being transparent and unrecognizable, the child can continue to lead a totally normal life.
  • Of the 3 types of treatments with invisible aligners that we have seen, this is the most basic of them all. Especially suitable to correct those minimal deviations of our teeth.
  • To get the most out of this type of invisible orthodontics in the city of Malaga, up to 14 aligners or aligners are used in English. The duration of the same is usually around 8 months approximately. Being something more basic, this invisible orthodontic treatment is usually somewhat cheaper than the previous ones.

In our center, we have a specialist in Orthodontics and Maxillofacial Orthopedics, which allows us to offer our patients a comprehensive solution to their problem. In contrast to the traditional system, in which the orthodontist adapts standardized braces and arches to the patient’s teeth, an advanced 3D planning system can be used to quickly and accurately correct tooth malposition.
