Malocclusion is one of the most common problems for which parents bring their children to the dentist. Uneven teeth have an increased risk of developing caries, creating problems with the diction. Dental Activators in Dubai, Abu Dhabi & Sharjah are intended to correct the dentoalveolar system in children from 5-to 6 years old. When the first permanent teeth appear or are just erupting, and their roots are not yet fully formed, it is during this period that it is pretty easy to correct their position.
Aim of the Treatment:
The silicone mouthguards must be used at night, and it is also necessary to use them during the day for at least two hours. The jaws should be relatively tightly closed, while the mouth should be closed.
Thus, the correct fixation of the teeth is carried out, and the healing process takes place. The action is based on an insignificant but adequate all-around pressure on the jaw zone, and there is also a substantial fixation of the dentition in the correct position.
The outcome of activators puts the teeth that grow at the wrong angle in their place. It helps the jaw to take the correct position and prevents the development of malocclusions. It also saves the child from wearing complex and uncomfortable orthodontic appliances at an early stage.
The advantages of getting the treatment are as follows:
Comfort: It is a very comfortable, soft, and flexible device that has a comfortable shape that exactly repeats the anatomy of the jaws. It causes no discomfort.
Safety: The device is relatively safe to wear for a child.
Easy Care: The child can himself take care of the activators by simply washing them underwater.
No Adjustment: It does not need to be adjusted; just wear it, and the teeth will take the right place.
Simple Oral Hygiene: Brushing and flossing your teeth is also very simple as you can remove the device and brush your teeth.
Dentists recommend the treatment in case of the following pathologies:
- Fixing the jaw or tongue in the correct position
- Elimination of various types of occlusion violations
- For correction of dentition in case of lagging in the growth of jaws
- Elimination of crowded teeth
The most effective use of the activators is with milk and mixed dentition. In adults, the design is used as a retention apparatus after orthodontic treatment and in case of dysfunctional joints and with increased abrasion of the hard dental tissues.
The treatment process with the activators is quite long but less expensive and more effective than other orthodontic appliances.
The duration of treatment is individual, and it varies from person to person depending on the type of defect and degree of severity. In most cases, it takes at least a year.
They must be worn for at least 12 hours, either all night or several hours during the day. The teeth should be fixed in the apparatus, and the lips should be closed.
At the beginning of treatment, wearing an activator may cause inconvenience, discomfort, and pain, which disappears with time.
Caring for the device is quite simple: the activator must be washed daily in plain running water, and boiling is allowed to remove contaminants. Store the activator in a particular case.
How Long Should They be Worn?
The duration of treatment depends on the age and degree of impairment. The main advantage of the design is that you need to wear it for a couple of hours during the day and all night. So, the process of correcting deformations is made invisible to everyone.
The cost of Dental Activators in Dubai, Abu Dhabi & Sharjah can range from AED 2999 to AED 3999. The cost of treatment depends on several factors, including the severity of the problem, the type of defect, the dentist’s qualification, the clinic level, and location.
