Orthodontics is a part of general dentistry that deals with the correction of incorrect alignment of teeth and jaws. Benefits of orthodontic treatment include improved oral health, improve appearance, and a better chance to keep your teeth for a lifetime. Malocclusion are more than an aesthetic problem – they are also a serious health problem.
The most common form of orthodontic treatment are fixed braces. It gently moves teeth to correct position. This makes it possible to correct biting defects. We are using them for teenagers and adults (less for younger children). The brackets may be metal, the color of the tooth – cream or transparent. The advantage of fixed braces is that they do not require the patient to remember to put them on, they are glued to the teeth for the entire treatment period of about 2 years, after which they are detachable.
