Steps for Installing Dental Braces

Installing dental braces has several important steps that must be followed before, during, and after the braces installation, which we will discuss in this section:

Steps Before Installation

  1. The dentist must carefully examine and diagnose the patient’s teeth to identify the problem and develop an appropriate treatment plan.
  2. The patient undergoes diagnostic tests on the teeth and mouth with X-rays, and on the jaw bones using CT scans.
  3. Panoramic photos are taken of the teeth and mouth from the inside to identify the position of the teeth and location of the bites.
  4. If the teeth have other diseases, they must be treated before installing the braces, such as cavities and gum inflammation.
  5. If there are extra or baby teeth, they must be removed before installing the braces.
  6. Taking measurements and dimensions of the teeth to prepare the chosen braces.

Steps During Installation

  1. The session begins with a deep cleaning of the teeth and removal of bacteria, tartar, and deposits from the tooth surface.
  2. Brackets are placed on each tooth using a strong adhesive to secure them.
  3. The wire is inserted between the brackets to connect them and tighten them to move the teeth.
  4. The dentist installs rubber bands to connect all parts and guide the teeth to their natural position.
  5. At the end of the session, the dentist provides some advice on caring for the teeth and braces.

Steps After Installation

This is the final step after completing the braces treatment and removal. The dentist ensures the desired results, then prepares a retainer device for the teeth after the braces, which is used to hold the teeth in their new position and prevent them from moving back to their old position. It is installed for 6 months.

  • The dentist’s skill in regularly examining and adjusting the braces.
