Orthodontics or jaw orthopedics is a branch of dentistry that deals with improper bite that may be the result of improper bone relationships, that is, the mutual relationship of the upper and lower jaw, or just the improper position of the teeth in the jaws.
In addition to aesthetic defects that are very successfully solved by orthodontic therapy, the main goal of this therapy is to achieve correct interjaw relationships, that is, correct bite. A proper bite enables the smooth functioning of the entire masticatory apparatus, i.e. the jaws, during speech and chewing functions. In this way, it is possible to prevent functional disorders or correct disturbances in the jaw (temporomandibular) joint.
After a detailed examination and analysis, our orthodontist will suggest appropriate therapy with a mobile or fixed orthodontic appliance (so-called prosthesis). Orthodontic therapy is possible for both children and adults.
Apart from classic mobile and fixed devices, if there are possibilities and indications for it, it is possible to correct irregularities with a system of transparent foils (Aligners).
