How do you do a fiberotomy?

Fiberotomy Surgery The dentist administers a local anesthesia pitot to inserting the scalpel blade or laser into the sulcus of the teeth and cuts across the fibers which hold each tooth in place. There is not a flap, rip or change within the outer position of the gums.

Why retention is necessary after orthodontic treatment?

Once orthodontic treatment is complete, the retention phase of treatment ensures that your teeth stay put. Retention occurs with the diligent daily use of retainers by patients and eliminates the chance of teeth relapsing, or perhaps shifting into a more crooked position.

What is circumferential fiberotomy?

A Circumferential Supracrestal Fiberotomy (CFS) is an effective treatment to aid in keeping your teeth from rotating back to their original position after successful orthodontic care. It entails releasing the connective supracrestal fibers that are attached to the tooth and bone.

Can I wear my retainer during the day instead of at night?

Most orthodontists advise their patients to wear their retainers for the rest of their lives. However, the retainers only need to be worn at night and skipping a night here and there is no big deal.

How quickly do teeth shift without retainer?

The first three months are critical, and the teeth are most likely to shift during this stage. During this time, a week without your retainer may cause some minor shifting. Your retainer may feel a bit tighter on your teeth when you place it back in again.

What is Supracrestal tissue attachment?

The term “biologic width” is replaced by “supracrestal tissue attachment”, consisting of junctional-epithelium and supracrestal connective tissue. • An infringement of restorative margins within the supracrestal connective-tissue attachment is associated with inflammation and loss of periodontal supporting tissue.

What is normal clinical attachment level?

1) Oral examination The mean value of clinical attachment loss was obtained and divided into 4 groups: a clinical attachment of <1 mm (normal group), a clinical attachment of 1 – 3 mm (mild group), a clinical attachment of 3 – 5 mm (moderate group) and a clinical attachment of ≥5 mm (severe group).

What is circumferential supracrestal fiberotomy (CSF)?

Circumferential supracrestal fiberotomy (CSF) may release the tension on the supra-alveolar fibers following tooth de-rotation, thereby reducing the relapse risk. However, careful identification of the amount and location of relapse enables proper clinical evaluation.

What is the function of connective supracrestal fibers?

The fibers act like a twisted rubber band; the force that the fibers exert as they attempt to untwist pulls the teeth back to their original position. CSF reduces the rotational relapse of orthodontically aligned teeth through the releasing of the connective supracrestal fibers that attach the tooth to the bone.

What is CSF in orthodontics?

CSF reduces the rotational relapse of orthodontically aligned teeth through the releasing of the connective supracrestal fibers that attach the tooth to the bone. The CSF procedure is performed by creating an incision around the gingival crevicular region that surrounds each tooth.
