How the metal braces are installed in the clinic Medissa?

1. Consultation. At the consultation, the orthodontist conducts a detailed examination and diagnosis of the oral cavity.  We use the most modern method of dental diagnostics – 3D scanning of teeth. The doctor takes a virtual impression of the jaws without discomfort for the patient.  Then we send the 3D model to the laboratory. The design is made within a week.  During the first visit, the doctor takes a photo.

2. Preparing for installation. Before installing braces, the patient should come to the dentist-therapist.  He makes sure that all the teeth are healthy. If it is necessary, he removes caries.  Also, before installing metal braces, the dentist-therapist makes the patient a professional cleaning of teeth. As the metal braces are fixed structure, the treatment of caries after installation will be problematic.

3. Braces are installed on the outer surface of the teeth. The doctor attaches the bracket system to the patient's teeth and makes a schedule of visits to monitor treatment.
