What is orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a special branch of dentistry that deals with the studying and treating of irregularities in the growth and development of jaws, and the adjusting of the irregular positioning of teeth and bite.

Who is the treatment designed for?

You can start planning a treatment for children even from the age of 5, and an upper age limit does not exist.

How is the irregular position of teeth corrected?

The orthodontic treatment in our Clinic can be done with removable appliances,

 

classic fixed braces as well as with aesthetic braces.

 

We also work with the Damon system (self-ligating brackets),

as well as with lingual braces (inner brackets) for treating lower incisors.

Different functional appliances are used for treating issues with the jaw and problems with bite.

Orthodontists know what needs to be done and when, and you will make the best decision together.

Why correct the irregular position of teeth?

Everyone wants to have a beautiful smile, and an orthodontist is an expert in creating it. Correct alignment of teeth not only looks beautiful, but enables a correct bite as well. Upper and lower teeth together influence biting, chewing and speech. A beautiful smile makes you feel better and boosts your confidence.

If you take care of your teeth, that can last your entire life.

If you recognize any of the following with you or your child, it’s time to visit the orthodontist:

-you want a beautiful smile

-early or late loss of milk teeth

-problems with biting and chewing

-breathing through the mouth

-sucking a finger or other negative habits

-crowding and lack of space for teeth
