Overview with orthodontist
If you thought that foils are a great solution for you, there are probably many questions that you would like to ask, and many more things are unclear and you want to know them before making a definite decision. During an orthodontic examination, you can ask all the questions that are of interest to you, and on the other hand, the orthodontist will evaluate whether the foil for teeth straightening is the best solution for you. Each patient is different and foils are not the best solution for each patient.
Taking dental impression and orthodontic analysis
Before the orthodontist starts planning the therapy, it is necessary to collect certain information about the current state of the teeth, their position, how you bite and the relationship between the upper and lower jaws. That is why he needs dental impression, X-rays (Orthopan and tele-X-ray), and photographs of the face.
Animation of tooth movement and foil production
During the first consultation with the orthodontist, 2 pairs of impressions are taken. One pair for orthodontic analysis, and another pair for a technician who scans the models obtained from the impression and enters them in the software program. The software then calculates the ideal position of the teeth and the necessary movements. Based on this, the required number of foils is determined. This animation then looks the orthodontist and, on the basis of the done orthodontic analysis, makes, if necessary, some corrections of the teeth position. Then you also look at the animation of the movement of the teeth.
If you agree with the proposed result, the technician continues the process of making the foil. The technician makes as many models as the software has determined that is needed, and based on these models he makes the foils. You get all the foils at once, with a carefully marked layout of wearing.
