Orthodontics

Orthodontics is a field of dental medicine which deals with straightening malpositioned teeth and jaws using fixed and mobile braces.

A clinical examination is necessary for establishing the right orthodontic therapy.

In child and adolescent jaw development, orthodontic therapy is used as a prophylactic measure.

Wearing an orthodontic appliance improves dental esthetics, but its functional aspect is crucial.

Orthodontics is used to bring the patient’s upper and lower jaw (occlusion) into a harmonious relationship, preventing possible dental, periodontal and temporomandibular complications.

There is no age limit for orthodontic therapy, although it is mostly conducted in adolescence.
