ORTHODONTICS

STRAIGHT AND HEALTHY TEETH

Orthodontics deals with the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of irregularities in the position and development of teeth, jaws, and faces. Orthodontic irregularities can lead to speech, chewing, and swallowing disorders. Improper tooth arrangement complicates oral hygiene, resulting in caries and periodontitis. Often, these anomalies affect the overall appearance of the face and its physiognomy. Placing a fixed device, such problems can be solved.

There are fixed prostheses with metal brackets, sapphire (invisible), and lingual (internal) fixed braces.

In addition to conventional metal brackets, we can also offer you fixed braces that are made entirely of sapphire glass, ie. brackets that are completely transparent and therefore less noticeable. However, there are patients who do not want their fixed device to be seen at all, and for them, the best solution is the so-called. lingual or internal braces where all the elements are located on the inside of your teeth, ie. they are turned towards the tongue.

There are patients who do not want to wear a fixed brace but want to do something about the position and arrangement of their teeth. For them, the solution is a plastic transparent foil which achieves the desired results.

From the beginning of therapy with orthodontic braces, it is necessary to perform control examinations monthly, however, with new self-ligating systems, this period can be extended to 6 to 8 weeks, which will not affect the total duration of therapy.
