When should you start orthodontic treatment?

The beginning of orthodontics is one of the questions most asked by patients who come to our clinic in Barcelona for the first time. We have to take into account 2 main factors:

  • the age of the person
  • The type of malocclusion

Yes, we can say that the ideal is to start with an orthodontic treatment when all the permanent teeth have come out or are about to do so. This is why it is so important to go to a dental clinic specialized in orthodontics, since with a good diagnosis, dental treatment begins at the most opportune moment.

Since always, in our dental clinics in Barcelona and Ibiza, we make a free first visit where, apart from the dental check-up, we do a TAG, free of charge, to be able to define the orthodontic problem with total accuracy, the most appropriate time to start dental treatment and the most recommended type of orthodontics.

Types of dental orthodontics according to the problem detected

orthodontics-invisible-imoiWe perform several types of orthodontic treatment, depending on the exact problem of your teeth and / or jaws:

  • Treatments with dental braces or fixed orthodontics . They are small pieces of different materials that stick to the teeth and are joined by means of arches. Dental braces carry the position information that they have to transmit to the tooth.
  • Removable orthodontic appliances . They are usually plastic appliances that cover part of the palate and are attached to some teeth. They carry out limited movements in the teeth
  • Functional appliances . They are removable dental braces that try to take advantage of the patient’s growth to avoid a skeletal problem. They are useful during growth peaks. Avoid complex treatments in adults
  • Chin guards and face masks. They can be used in combination with other orthodontic appliances to increase or decrease the size of the bone as we are interested. They are normally used at night in growing patients.
  • Aesthetic orthodontics . It is not a special type of orthodontics, but it is a classification of the previous typologies with special materials so that it is less visible. Go to the link for more information
  • Invisible orthodontics It is a type of orthodontics with a special material that makes them practically invisible.

Each type of treatment is indicated for people with special ailments and has a different price. Access the previous sections to find out about the different types of orthodontics that we perform at IMOI

What do we do at IMOI on the first visit with the orthodontist?

As we have been commenting on a first approximation we need to know the state of your teeth and foresee their evolution. For this we need to take photos, X-rays and register your teeth (to make a plaster model of your mouth and be able to study it calmly). We do all this for free on your first visit

At the end of this study, the orthodontist will have an idea of the necessary treatment and the prognosis, that is, of the results he expects.
