A Guide through Orthodontic Treatment
Taking Records
The    next    step    is    an appointment      where we    take    records    of your      teeth      -      my orthodontic         nurse Magda   and   I   will   take X-rays,     photos     and plaster   impressions.   I use     these     to     plan your    treatment,    and to        monitor        your progress          through treatment.
If   you   opt   for      aligners      such      as      Invisalign      or      a      lingual      brace      such      as      Incognito,      a     special   type      of      impression      needs      to      be      taken      and      sent      to      laboratories      to      be      3D     scanned.      I   then   work   with   the   laboratories   to   dictate   the   brace   shape   and   treatment plan as shown in the image below:
The   Records   also   allow   me   to   review   your   case   in   greater   depth,   and   this   may   include identifying    a    range    of    issues    that    mean    you    are    not    immediately    suitable    for orthodontic    treatment    and    require    that    I    refer    you    to    your    dentist.    Issues    might include:
Tooth   decay.   If   the   X-rays   show   untreated   tooth   decay.   Your   teeth   must   be   in a stable condition prior to orthodontic treatment.
Gum   Disease.   Gum   disease   needs   to   be   treated   and   shown   to   be   stable.   As brace   treatment   makes   it   more   difficult   to   clean   untreated   gum   disease   could become   rapidly   worse   with   orthodontic   treatment   and   result   in   the   early   loss   of your teeth.
Overcrowding.   If   there   is   not   enough   space   for   all   your   teeth   in   your   jaw(s),   I will    refer    you    for    tooth    extraction    to    your    dentist.    While    extractions    are normally   carried   out   before   fitting   labial   or   aligner   braces,   if   your   case   is   not clear,   we   can   wait   until   you   are   in   braces   and   review   how   your   teeth   are moving.   If   you   are   having   extractions   near   the   front   of   your   mouth,   we   can   hide the   gaps   using   a   white   shell   stuck   to   the   tooth   adjacent   to   the   gap.   I   can   then slowly shave this down as the space closes.
