THE MXD ALIGNER SYSTEM
Dealing with their teeth is usually a torment for children and adolescents. Dental care or pain, functional disorders, crooked teeth or fear of the next dental appointment – these are all things that children as well as adults would love to do without. This generally becomes much worse when tooth alignment needs to be tackled. The orthocaps experts are aware of this problem and have therefore developed removable braces especially for children and adolescents: the MxD orthocaps aligner.A decisive advantage of the MxD system is that your child only receives a dental aligner to use at night and is therefore not restricted in any way during the day. In the morning, the non-fixed braces are simply removed before school or other daily activities. The MxD aligner is generally put in after the last meal and subsequent tooth cleaning and then worn for approximately 12 hours. The aligners are changed and adjusted again every four weeks.
At the end of the treatment phase (which is generally after wearing eight aligners), either the retainer dental aligners provided can be used or the second treatment phase can be started directly. Your orthodontist will give you advice about this, and the procedure to be followed will be geared towards the development status of the remaining teeth. The bottom line: removable braces are the best alternative to traditional non-invisible braces for teenagers and children.
