Férulas después de la ortodoncia

Férulas después de la ortodoncia ¿Por qué son importantes y cómo cuidarlas?

Después de un tratamiento de ortodoncia, es importante mantener los dientes en su lugar para que el tratamiento no pierda efecto. Es aquí donde las férulas se vuelven fundamentales. Las férulas son dispositivos que se utilizan para mantener los dientes en su lugar después de la ortodoncia. En este post, hablaremos sobre la importancia de las férulas y cómo cuidarlas adecuadamente.

Tipos de férulas

Existen dos tipos principales de férulas después de la ortodoncia: las férulas de retención fijas y las férulas de retención removibles. Las férulas de retención fijas se colocan en la parte posterior de los dientes y permanecen allí permanentemente, mientras que las férulas de retención removibles se pueden quitar y poner según sea necesario. El ortodoncista recomendará el tipo de férula que mejor se adapte a las necesidades del paciente.

Cómo funcionan las férulas después de la ortodoncia

Las férulas después del tratamiento de ortodoncia funcionan manteniendo los dientes en su lugar después del tratamiento. Los dientes tienen la tendencia a moverse después de la ortodoncia, especialmente si no se utilizan férulas. Las férulas ejercen una presión suave y constante en los dientes, evitando que se muevan y manteniéndolos en la posición correcta.

Cómo cuidar las férulas

Es importante cuidar adecuadamente las férulas después de la ortodoncia para asegurar que continúen funcionando correctamente y duren tanto tiempo como sea necesario. Los siguientes son algunos consejos importantes para cuidar las férulas:

  • Limpieza regular: Limpia las férulas diariamente con un cepillo de dientes suave y agua tibia. Evita utilizar agua caliente o cepillos de cerdas duras que puedan dañar las férulas.
  • Almacenamiento adecuado: Guarda las férulas en su estuche cuando no las estés usando. Esto ayudará a prevenir que se ensucien o se dañen.
  • Evita comer con las férulas puestas: Es importante quitarse las férulas antes de comer para evitar dañarlas o romperlas. Asegúrate de guardarlas en su estuche para evitar perderlas.
  • Consulta al ortodoncista si hay algún problema: Si notas algún problema con las férulas, como grietas o roturas, consulta a tu ortodoncista lo antes posible. Él o ella podrá solucionar cualquier problema y garantizar que las férulas sigan funcionando correctamente.

Duración del uso de férulas

La duración del uso de férulas después del tratamiento de ortodoncia depende de cada caso individual. Por lo general, las férulas se usan de forma continua durante las primeras semanas después del tratamiento. Luego, el ortodoncista recomendará un horario para su uso, que generalmente se reduce a la noche. Es importante seguir usando las férulas durante el tiempo recomendado para asegurar que los dientes permanezcan en su lugar.

Qué hacer si se pierden o se rompen

Si se pierden o se rompen las férulas después del tratamiento de ortodoncia, es importante tomar medidas rápidas para evitar que los dientes se muevan fuera de su posición. Si las férulas son removibles, es posible que se pueda usar una férula de reemplazo temporal hasta que se puedan obtener férulas nuevas. Si las férulas son fijas, se debe programar una cita con el ortodoncista lo antes posible para repararlas o reemplazarlas.


Las férulas después del tratamiento de ortodoncia son importantes para mantener los dientes en su lugar y evitar que se muevan. Los pacientes deben seguir las recomendaciones del ortodoncista para el uso y cuidado de las férulas. Con una atención adecuada, las férulas pueden ayudar a mantener los resultados del tratamiento de ortodoncia durante muchos años. Si tienes alguna pregunta o preocupación sobre las férulas después del tratamiento de ortodoncia, no dudes en comunicarte con tu ortodoncista.
