The goal of modern orthodontic treatment is to establish a good relationship between the bite and the tooth, achieving a long-term, stable facial aesthetic and results.
Pain often appears during orthodontic treatment. About 90% to 95% of patients experience pain. Pain is not a big problem, but nearly 10% of patients avoid orthodontic treatment, because the patient has experienced pain. Patients who are afraid of illness can avoid orthodontic treatment.
Pain can be felt by the patient 8 hours after the first activation of the orthodontic appliance. The pain you feel depends on the force used. Pain perception in orthodontic treatment is caused by changes in blood circulation due to orthodontic appliance.
Pain on the orthodontic mechanism, is divided into two large groups, the first is related to the application of pressure, and the second is based on its onset. When applied, the first degree occurs when the patient is unresponsive to pain, unless the operator manipulates the tooth by moving it with the help of an ortho device. At the second level pain or discomfort when biting. Whereas the third degree, the patient cannot chew food with a normal consistency.
