common problem

Q: I have not been correcting since the third grade of elementary school, and have not been corrected until the third year of high school. I want to ask whether the difficulty of correction , correction time , and money will increase over time?

Generally speaking, the most suitable age for correction is between ten and thirteen years old, but each patient’s level of development is different. The third year of high school may be a little later than the "so-called standard age", but in fact There are also many adults who are correcting. Generally speaking, children’s tooth movement speed and adaptability are higher than those of adults. Most orthodontists except for some special cases, such as fighting (third type of occlusion). I would like to start tracking when the deciduous teeth are about to be replaced, but when the replacement is not completed, when is the best time to start correction.

The difficulty of correction usually increases with age, because when a child still has room for development, we can use his (her) remaining development space to help correct and change the face shape. Generally speaking, as the age increases, the correction time will be longer. Adults’ teeth are more difficult to move. In most cases, if the treatment is longer, the cost of correction may be higher than that of ordinary people.

Why choose all-ceramic crowns instead of traditional cermet crowns?


A: The disadvantage of traditional metal-ceramic dental crowns is that the edges of the gingival and dentures are prone to have a black color due to the relationship between the metal edges, especially in the anterior tooth area. Sometimes inferior metal alloy inner crowns can easily cause gingival inflammation and swelling, and clinical manifestations The gums are red and swollen, and the edges of the dentures are black.
