"Orthodontic mouth caps can be individual or thermoplastic. Individual ones are made in the dental Clinic "Sa-Nata" according to the patient's jaw casts. This manufacturing option is most effective in aligning and correcting the bite. Thermoplastic mouthcaps have a universal, overall size. Before installation, they need to be dipped in hot water for a while, as a result of which they heat up and become plastic. After installation on the jaw, they solidify and take the necessary shape.
According to the material of manufacture, they distinguish:
Both materials are hypoallergenic, transparent, a person will not feel them while wearing. By time, the mouthcaps are divided into: nightly: worn only during the night’s sleep, used in case of slight curvature; round-the-clock: used for severe defects, worn constantly, removed only in order to conduct oral hygiene.
A device for alignment and correction of bite is produced for adults and children. If it’s easy for adults to use this device, they cause some inconvenience in children. For example, children can constantly remove the mouth cap, thereby reducing its therapeutic effect.
On the other hand, dental caps are invisible, like simple braces, because of which children are often teased by peers.
