✔ Review of the state of the oral cavity for the presence of:
– caries, fillings, crowns.
– missing teeth and wisdom teeth.
– CT scans for teeth with nerve removal.
✔ visual overview of the bite
– complaints according to the patient’s words and wishes.
✔ Taking impressions for the manufacture of plaster models, on the basis of which a preliminary calculation will be made.
✔ Referral to additional images (CT, TPX, etc.)

Based on the initial consultation and images, the orthodontist with the help of other specialists (dentists: endodontists, therapists, surgeons, hygienist, orthopedist) draws up a phased treatment plan (previous). For complete oral cavity sanitation

After the patient has gone through all the stages, treatment is started.


While wearing braces, it is somewhat more difficult to treat dental diseases. Therefore, it is important to solve all problems with teeth and gums before installing the bracket system:

  • Cure caries – the installation of a bracket system is possible only in the absence of carious areas, since orthodontic treatment promotes the accelerated development of caries and inflammatory processes. Why is this happening? Maintaining hygiene becomes more difficult: throughout the day, plaque and pieces of food often accumulate between the parts of the system, which is an ideal breeding ground for bacteria. Remember to treat tooth decay prior to insertion to reduce the total cost of correction.
  • Replace worn out fillings – when moving the dentition with the help of braces, the filling may fall out or the bracket and the filling may come off. Since the load will occur, which will entail discomfort and discomfort, as well as unnecessary costs to eliminate these problems
  • Crowns and other orthopedic structures – you need to examine their strength and the possibility of loading them if necessary. If there are orthopedic constructions
  • Teeth with nerve removal (endodontic treatment) – each tooth is examined separately using CT scans to rule out chronic inflammation that can cause complications during braces treatment. With the help of braces, a load will be exerted on the teeth and inflammatory processes can intensify and lead to additional interventions (canal retreatment and additional treatment). This will lead to longer wearing of the braces. Since during endodontic treatment, movement with braces is stopped so as not to break the tooth crown.
  • Remove extra teeth . Which teeth – frontal or chewing, milk or molar – are to be removed, as well as how many of them there will be, depends on the type of bite anomaly. Most often, “eights”, “fours” and “sixes”, less often “fives” and incisors, and sometimes other teeth, fall under the surgeon’s forceps. Usually, removal is carried out in order to maintain the correct oval of the face and not spoil the bite.

Does it make sense to wear braces without removing wisdom teeth?

As we found out, extraction is necessary in cases where there is not enough space in the jaw for the correct position of the teeth. Unfortunately, without the removal of the wisdom tooth in such cases, orthodontic treatment will be ineffective. The teeth, occupying the desired position, will either be forced to change their inclination, or simply will not budge. If the wisdom teeth are not removed at the initial stage of treatment, then when moving and lacking space, overload of the sevens and their fracture are possible. Only timely orthodontic treatment in childhood will help to avoid removal, but it is worth monitoring your wisdom teeth in the future.

  • Professional teeth cleaning . Cleaning teeth from calculus and plaque. The procedure for installing braces is carried out only on perfectly clean teeth, since various deposits and plaque interfere with the high-quality adhesion of surfaces and can lead to the braces coming off. Cleaning is carried out either with the help of special powdered preparations, or with ultrasound.
  • Saturate enamel with minerals . To increase the strength of enamel, prevent caries, reduce tooth hypersensitivity, treat caries at the stage of carious spots, normalize the state of the mucous membrane of the oral cavity and gums, extend the service life of installed fillings.
  • Eliminate inflammation in the gums, etc. . If, while wearing braces, you develop an inflammatory process in your gums, this will not be the most pleasant news. To avoid such surprises, it is worth getting rid of even the smallest periodontal diseases before getting braces or starting orthodontic treatment.

Why is oral hygiene with braces needed?

Braces put a lot of stress on the teeth and jaw, so it is important that they are healthy. In addition, it will also reduce the cost of bite correction, as much less manipulation is required.


When the teeth and gums are healed (sanitized), the orthodontist takes the following steps:

  • Images of the jaws and, if necessary, joints are taken: CT, TRG, panoramic;
  • Impressions of teeth are taken (for making plaster models);
  • The type of bracket system is determined;
  • Calculations are carried out, data are entered into the patient’s orthodontic questionnaire;
  • Term and cost of correction (may be adjusted in the course of treatment depending on the situation);
  • The term of wearing braces depends on the peculiarities of the location of the teeth, the type of occlusion, the age of the patient;
  • In some cases, 12-18 months may be enough. In others, it takes up to 2.5-3 years.

Preparing for braces is also about teaching the patient proper oral hygiene. While wearing the system, you will have to be especially careful to ensure that your teeth are always clean, otherwise, after the end of the correction, you will have to get rid of caries.


The procedure for installing a bracket system is a responsible matter that requires patience and accuracy:

  • The surface of the teeth is polished and covered with a special agent “adhesive”.
  • Then the product is washed off and the surface of the teeth is dried.
  • A special glue is applied to each tooth and braces are placed.
  • The tooth is exposed to ultraviolet light – and the glue hardens. Once the braces are in place, remove excess adhesive.
  • A special arc is placed in the grooves of the plates, fixed with ligatures or closed with locks, if these are non-ligature braces. The tips of the arc are folded back or cut off.

As a rule, braces are installed in 2 visits to the doctor – on each jaw separately. Regardless of the type of braces, first of all, the construction is placed on the upper, and only then on the lower jaw. The installation procedure will take several hours, so before going to the LIPINSKY Dental Center it is advisable to eat and then thoroughly brush your teeth and the spaces between them.

Immediately after installing the braces, no pain will arise, since it takes time for the mechanism to begin correction.

  • However, after a few hours, the jaw usually begins to ache, it may seem that the teeth are slightly loose. All these symptoms after installation are normal. This indicates that the bite has begun to correct.
  • Braces begin to slowly move the dentition, the jaw feels unnatural pressure, the position of muscle tissue changes – all this cannot be painless.
  • How long the unpleasant sensations last is hard to say for sure. Usually not for long – about 4 days from the moment the system was attached. Contact your personal physician.
  • In addition, some types of braces (for example, metal ligatures) have rather sharp parts in their design, which can irritate the inner surface of the cheeks. Avoiding this is simple: you just have to use a special wax for braces. Small pieces are glued onto interfering elements to avoid mucosal injury.

However, when the patient is shown removal, the specialists pay attention to the wisdom teeth first of all, because:

  • They erupt later than others, between the ages of 16 and 27, which often negates the results of adolescent treatment.
  • The process of their eruption is often associated with various complications – in about 75% of cases, this also affects the location of other teeth.
  • “Wise” teeth sometimes remain impacted and do not take part in the bite, which makes them an unnecessary rudimentary organ and the first candidate for extraction.

However, there are situations when the patient simply does not have third molars or their extraction is not enough to correct the anomaly – in this case, it is necessary to resort to the removal of other teeth.
