The radiographs that are usually used for orthodontic diagnosis are: panoramic and cephalometric radiographs. Each of them reveal characteristics of great importance to carry out the treatment plan.

In the x-rays we can observe some alteration in the teeth or in the bone tissue. The orthodontist must know the patient's oral health status before starting treatment.

Orthodontics: What is Interproximal Reduction (IPR)

Orthodontics

During orthodontic treatment, a series of procedures are performed and one of them is dental stripping or IPR (interproximal reduction), which consists of reducing the width of the teeth.

The interproximal wear should not be greater than 0.5mm and is done with the objective of having small spaces to align the teeth. This procedure does not have negative consequences on the teeth, as long as it is performed by a trained professional.


Overdoing this procedure can cause tooth sensitivity. We share an interesting video from the Braces Explained channel.
