10 Preventive Measures
Ensure your safety during your visit in Our Clinic

Coral Dental Center
You are enjoying a hamburger when suddenly you feel a strong pain, you bit your cheek for the fourth time this week, and remember that you recently bit your tongue, causing an injury to it that prevented you from doing that job presentation as you did I would like.
This could stop happening to you thanks to orthodontics, which is the procedure in which the teeth are aligned through the brackets, which facilitates the cleaning of your teeth and reduces the risks of periodontal disease, the accumulation of bacterial plaque (which weakens and bleach your teeth) and prevent tooth decay.
Remembering our example of the hamburger, in a bite of aligned teeth the upper teeth prevent you from accidentally biting your cheeks and lips, while the lower teeth protect your tongue.

Have you heard that teeth last longer when they are well aligned? That’s right, this is because your teeth will have a lower degree of wear and tear as there are no crashes between them, as orthodontics reduces the risk of bruxism, a condition that wears your teeth, which increases the risk of I break a tooth or you have jaw pain. Orthodontics helps you improve your self-esteem, and the aesthetics of your mouth will improve significantly.
An orthodontics performed before maturation of the jaw bone can save you the expense of many dental treatments in the future and what better way to take advantage of that money than enjoying a vacation in Playa del Carmen enjoying the benefits of the sea?

Learn More About Orthodontics
Does orthodontics hurt?
The teeth may be sore and you may have some difficulty eating for a day or two after visits to the dentist. These discomforts gradually disappear and are less as treatment progresses. If you need it, you can take a mild pain reliever.
Do spacers hurt?
They may hurt something for a few days. If you need it, you can also take a pain reliever.
What happens if I don’t want to wear orthodontics and I don’t want my teeth to be aligned?
Don’t worry, you won’t starve because today there are soft foods that don’t require so much chewing. But brushing and cleaning a mouth with crowded teeth and a bad bite is much more difficult. This can lead to more problems such as swollen and bleeding gums and bad breath. It can also affect the way you talk, swallow and chew. In addition to the aesthetic problem.
What other advantages does well-aligned teeth have?
The mouth will be easier to care for, it can improve phonetics and the teeth will last longer.
What is a retainer and why should I wear it?
A retainer is a removable device made of wire and acrylic that attaches to the teeth and adapts to the palate. It is put on after having orthodontics and having removed the fixed appliances. Despite the fact that the teeth are already in their final position, the surrounding bone may not be sufficiently consolidated. The retainer is responsible for maintaining the position of the teeth while the bone hardens.
How long can I wear orthodontics?
This depends on the degree of dental crowding. Normally the dentist will estimate the duration of the treatment before starting the treatment, but generally, treatment in a serious occlusion can take two to three years.
Why should I wear elastic?
Elastics help to mobilize certain teeth or groups of teeth to improve occlusion. You will take care of taking them off before meals and putting them back on later. If you need more elastic, your dentist will give you a few replacement and show you how they are put.
Should I wear night braces?
This type of orthodontics is not always worn. If your case requires the use of nocturnal orthodontics, your collaboration with the dentist will be essential, and you should take it whenever you are told.
Can the position of my teeth be corrected only with a retainer or with removable orthodontics (not fixed)?
In some cases of minor bad positions, the use of a retainer or a removable device may be sufficient.
How long do you have to wear the retainer?
At the end of your orthodontic treatment it will be necessary to use a retainer. Generally it can be a year. This can only be told by your orthodontist.
How often should I visit my dentist to adjust them?
Normally adjustments are made every four weeks. The orthodontist will be in charge of telling you when to adjust the devices.
How often should I visit the dentist once my fixed braces have been removed?
At first, you should probably go once every four to six weeks, but as the treatment progresses it will only go every four to six months. In these visits the dentist checks the good condition of the retainer.
Should we follow any type of diet during the orthodontic period?
There is no strict “diet.” Your dentist will advise you not to eat certain foods that are very hard, sticky, gummy or too sweet. Eating this type of food may lead to a greater risk of breakage or loss of any device and, consequently, lengthen the treatment. Eating sweets and candies during this period also increases the risk of tooth decay.
Does fixed orthodontics cause tooth decay?
No, if you follow the instructions of your orthodontist.
Will I be one hour to brush my teeth?
No, it will take a little longer than now, especially at the beginning, when you have to learn how to clean your teeth and appliances.
Will I have to get teeth or teeth?
In some cases the orthodontist is forced to extract a tooth or milk tooth. Also in some cases of extreme crowding you have to remove some permanent tooth so that others fit properly.
If any component of my brackets breaks, will I have to start the whole treatment again?
No, but if you notice that any bracket or band is loose or broken, you should notify your orthodontist as soon as possible.
Will they have to do the wisdom tooth extraction after orthodontic treatment?
After orthodontic treatment, there may be a lack of space for wisdom teeth. If your dentist considers that you do not have enough space, he will recommend the extraction.
Is orthodontic treatment expensive?
Doing orthodontic treatment now can avoid the need for other dental or medical treatments in the future, which saves money. In addition, the early correction of a bad occlusion involves physical and psychological benefits that will last a lifetime. So, although the cost may seem high in principle, its benefits will be evident throughout life.
If my orthodontics is not enough to solve my case, Will they have to operate on me?
Some bad occlusions are so extreme that treatment with fixed orthodontics alone is not enough. In these cases, the dentist or orthodontist resorts to the collaboration of the Maxillofacial Surgeon. Fortunately, these cases are very rare, but when they occur, the combined treatment of orthodontics and surgery offers excellent results.
