WHAT IS AN ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT?

What is an orthodontic treatment is a common question. Orthodontics is a specialty within Dentistry that is responsible for diagnosing, preventing and treating dental and facial irregularities. Therefore, the orthodontist is a dentist who also has advanced studies or a master in Orthodontics, that is, specialized knowledge to correct the position of the teeth and guide the development of the jaws.

Orthodontic study

Before starting any treatment, a previous orthodontic study is necessary, which consists of a clinical examination to evaluate the malocclusion. In Ortodoncia Tres Torres this first visit is completely free.

ORTHODONTIC TREATMENTS

Orthodontic treatments, indicated to prevent and correct anomalies in the shape, position or use of dental pieces, respond to different types depending on the kind of force and technique we use.

Orthodontics
Invisalign

Orthodontics Invisalign is a type of orthodontics based on correcting tooth position with clear aligners generated with a virtual treatment plan. The aligners are made with 3D imaging technology using Invisalign’s ClinCheck software. They are transparent, removable and so comfortable that you can wear them without anyone noticing.

Lingual
Orthodontics

Lingual orthodontics corrects the position of your teeth with invisible braces placed on the inside of the teeth, so no one knows you are wearing them. Fixed metal brackets are used that work very efficiently in those patients who want fixed and invisible orthodontics. For patient comfort we use the smallest lingual brackets on the market. Dr. Fernando de la Iglesia is an active member of the European Society of Lingual Orthodontics (ESLO).

In orthodontics with visible brackets the correction of the position of the teeth is achieved with brackets placed on the outside of the teeth. Conventional or visible brackets are comfortable, easy to clean and can be metal, ceramic or sapphire being ideal for treatments in children and young people.

Why has orthodontics changed Barcelona

WHY HAS ORTHODONTICS CHANGED?

In this video you can see in 30 seconds how technological advances have changed the world of orthodontics. Now the treatments are more precise, aesthetic, comfortable, fast and… less painful!

WHEN TO START ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT

As each patient is unique, when to start orthodontic treatment depends on their own individual needs.

Dental crowding

It consists of the malposition of the teeth in the upper and lower arches and is caused by a lack of space of the teeth in the maxillary bones. When this happens, the teeth erupt by piling on top of each other, either by spinning or by being placed incorrectly. Dental crowding is one of the most common treatments and has an important impact on the aesthetics and dental health of the patient.

Dental malocclusion

Tooth malocclusion is characterized by contact and incorrect fit between the teeth of the upper and lower jaw. The most common malocclusion is when the upper front teeth protrude excessively above the lower front teeth (they resemble “rabbit teeth”) or cover most of the lower front teeth when biting (deep or augmented overbite).

Alterations in facial development

The lower arch is in a more forward position than the upper arch or the maxilla is narrower than the mandible. These alterations in facial development occur in children and adults and have repercussions on the bite. When the upper front teeth are behind the lower teeth, the bite is anteriorly crossed, while when the upper and lower front teeth do not come into contact when biting, the bite is open. When the upper teeth are not able to cover or “embrace” the lower teeth the bite is crossed.

Separated teeth

A fairly common form of malocclusion is the presence of a diastema or separated teeth, usually in the upper central incisors and occasionally between the lower central incisors. The cause of this dental malposition is often the presence of a bad development of the upper labial frenum that joins the upper lip with the gum.

 

IDEAL AGE
FOR ORTHODONTICS

Preventive orthodontics in children is recommended at the age of 6, the ideal age for the first visit to the orthodontist since that is when the first definitive molars erupt. Children’s orthodontics easily resolves cases such as bad fit of the teeth and may avoid skeletal problems and occlusion in adolescence.

Orthodontics in adults is something perfectly natural. Teeth can be corrected at any age. Adolescence is the ideal time to perform orthodontic treatment (…eliminate the adult…) since it is when most skeletal anomalies can be corrected. A faulty dental occlusion can generate health problems such as tooth wear, difficulties when eating, favouring gum diseases and even the future loss of teeth.

INVISIBLE ORTHODONTICS
ADAPTED TO THE PATIENT

Invisible orthodontics adapted to the patient is the aesthetic alternative to conventional treatment with brackets. The best known are Invisalign and lingual orthodontics. Although in most diagnoses it is possible to use both options, it is the orthodontist who must prescribe the invisible orthodontics that best suits the patient.

QUESTIONS ABOUT ORTHODONTICS

It depends on each case and patient, that is, on the dental movement we have to achieve. To correct anomalies in the shape or position of the teeth we can apply different types of braces depending on the force and technique required. For example, orthodontics with visible brackets is common in children, while invisible Invisalign orthodontics is ideal for treating dental problems in patients who like maintaining their aesthetics during treatment.

No. We can talk about certain discomforts in the first days of treatment, especially in the types of orthodontics that put more pressure on the teeth, but not about pain. Nowadays any orthodontic treatment is based on the comfort of the patient.

A dentist is not the same as an orthodontist. The orthodontist is a specialist in orthodontics and can guarantee a much higher level of results. Therefore, if you need an orthodontic treatment in Barcelona, you must make sure that you put yourself in the hands of a qualified orthodontist with a 3-year master’s degree in orthodontics and with high certifications in the type of orthodontics you are going to have (Master’s degree in orthodontics from the International University of Catalonia accredited by the Network of Erasmus Based European Orthodontic Programs – NEBEOP).

Yes, we are exclusively dedicated to orthodontics in Barcelona without doing any other type of treatment. Since 2005 we have carried out more than 5,000 treatments in our clinic. With regard to Invisalign orthodontics, we have the Invisalign Diamond II Provider certification, which is the highest category in the world for orthodontists who carry out more than 200 Invisalign treatments a year.

To see if you need orthodontics the right thing to do is to have an orthodontist visit. But you may find that you probably need to be treated if any of these cases occur:

  • The upper front teeth protrude above the lower ones.
  • When biting down, the upper front teeth cover the lower ones.
  • You have the upper front teeth behind the lower ones.
  • The upper and lower front teeth do not come into contact when you bite.
  • Your teeth are crowded together.
  • You have problems when chewing.
  • You notice that your teeth are worn out.
  • When chewing you have the feeling that the lower jaw is moving to one side.
  • You have spaces between your teeth.
  • When children continue to suck their fingers after the age of 6 or have a cross bite.

In the first visit of about 45 minutes we take extra-oral and intra-oral photos and a clinical examination to evaluate your case. With the diagnosis in hand we are able to discuss the problems seen in your teeth, bones and face, and how to solve them through orthodontics.

At Ortodoncia Tres Torres you will not pay the first examination visit. When we have the diagnosis we will inform you about the fixed price of your treatment.

At Ortodoncia Tres Torres Barcelona we offer you financing for treatment with interest-free and in convenient monthly instalments.

Yes, the orthodontist who is handling your case from the beginning will attend to you personally throughout the treatment and will always be available to answer any questions you may have.

It depends on the treatment, but on average you will have to come to the clinic between 10 and 15 times during the year / year and a half of treatment. Control visits are generally every 6 weeks and in Invisalign treatments it is possible to make virtual visits via Skype for patients living outside Barcelona.

We will present you with a before and after of your orthodontic treatment. The best way to provide you with high quality orthodontic treatment is careful planning with a personalised treatment plan that does not put your dental health at risk. In order to make the most accurate diagnosis and thus obtain the best possible result, all processes  are digitized using state-of-the-art radiology, intraoral scanning and 3D printing equipment. With these advanced tools we can show you a prediction of the final result of the treatment.
