The devices can be of different types, and always tailored to the needs of each case and the “strategy” decided by the specialist: ensure proper alignment, separating or approximating teeth others, which are twisted turn, pass those are deflected inward, and so on. Are sometimes used removable appliances that can be removed and easily put back are made of a plastic plate that covers the roof or floor of mouth, which are incorporated fasteners, springs or wire ties made pressure corresponding teeth on the other cases are made in stationary positions that are left for a longer or shorter period and can only attach and remove the dentist.
They basically consist of a series of clamps that attach to the teeth and on which is fixed steel archwire that exerts some tension on certain parts.

This film shows a case of agenesis of the second permanent premolar. This means that under the primary molar (center of the radiograph) there is no tooth to be replaced when falling.
When initiating treatment?
The correction of the malposition of the teeth is much easier and effective in childhood or early youth to adulthood, when the mobilization of teeth using braces is more difficult and even more upset.
But neither should be started at very early ages, while still not completed the replacement of deciduous teeth by permanent, or the jaw bones have completed their development. Generally, treatment is initiated when the specialist decides the most appropriate time after studying each case.
Radiographs are useful to specify the relationships between the different teeth, check their insertion in the jaws and note the reason for his departure, which is crucial in deciding treatment guidelines For this radiograph, the malposition are evident even for a unskilled observer.
Within medicine orthodontics, braces are devices that are responsible for restoring the position of some teeth or full mouth effect in their teeth and certainly can be a pleasure or suffering for patients, depending on the degree of commitment with respect to the use of aid. There are many types of these weightings that are determined in their form and position obviously defined by the orthodontic problem that has the particular person, and it is responsibility of the medical professional orthodontic decision on the method necessary to apply the appropriate correction on the mouth in such a way as to achieve a more aesthetic dental appearance and lasting.

But not just the digests food here is in the foreground, but also the development of the dentition on the life cycle. Missing an upper tooth, for example, have settled down partner, this tooth bites into the void. This lack of the opposing results in the tooth slowly moving further and further down until finally he has not sufficient support in the jaw or very wrong to grow.

The placement of the fixed appliance requires great skill on the part of the specialist, but there would be no discomfort for the child.
In regular visits, usually made over a year to reach final alignment of the teeth, it is changing the relationship of the various components to regulate the action of the device.
1 .- After carefully cleaning and drying the surface of the teeth, the dentist paste clamps that make support for the wire with a special cement that attaches firmly to tooth enamel.
2 .- On the slots of the clamps is fixed steel arch wire that gradually imposes the shape of the teeth and small loops of rubber or springs to approximate or separate the teeth in the regular sessions appropriate modifications are made to adjust the machine and vary its action as the misplacement be corrected.
For a denture is considered ideal, it must meet several requirements: it must be proportionate to the dimensions of the jaws, and its component parts must meet the same level, in a uniform position, not interbreed and arranged symmetrically on both dental arches, so that the top lightly cover the bottom when you close your mouth.

Apparently this is a cosmetic problem, but in reality the malposition may involve some serious problems. For example, there may also malocclusion, ie an abnormal contact between the teeth of the maxilla and the mandible, which produces difficulties in mastication or speech, or conducive to the retention of food and dental caries or periodontal disease, inflammation, etc.. Therefore defects should be corrected tooth position, and this aspect is concerned the field of dentistry called orthodontics.
