Teeth stripping or reduction of the enamel between the teeth in orthodontia

In late March I published an entry about teeth stripping in orthodontia.

That entry concluded that if stripping is done with a painstaking and meticulous technique, it has no negative effects on the teeth or the gums.

  1.  It does not increase sensitivity — as it is limited to the enamel alone.
  2.  It does not increase the risk of cavities.
  3.  It does not injure or harm the gums — if the gums are properly protected when it is done.

It is important to explain and make very clear that it is a harmless procedure used to a greater or lesser extent in most cases, sometimes to make teeth more uniform in terms of size or shape.

Teeth stripping or reduction between the teeth in orthodontia can be done anywhere in the mouth, that is to say, in the front or the back (on the incisors or on the premolars and molars).

The anatomy and shape of the teeth must always be respected as much as possible, and the teeth must be polished and shaped until a good result is achieved.

Front teeth stripping: this creates these small spaces which are later closed. The image shows the teeth before and after stripping. It can be seen that the anatomy of the teeth has been respected as much as possible. The next step is to close the spaces.

Teeth stripping is a procedure that may be combined with any technique or type of orthodontic appliance — incognito invisible lingual braces, Invisalign, self-ligating brackets or traditional braces.
