Orthodontics corrects anomalies in the shape, position, function and alignment of dental and maxillofacial structures, using brackets, wires, elastic bands and plastic retainers. These devices are made of transparent materials for cosmetic reasons. The aim is to establish a balance between bone, muscle and joint structures.


Misaligned teeth (malocclusion) accumulate more dental plaque, an oral biofilm made up of bacteria, cells and organic waste. It can cause tooth decay, gingivitis and/o peridontal disease.


In addition, malocclusion can result in physical ailments such as neck and ear pain, headaches, sleep disorders and even spinal and muscle problems.


There are a number of techniques for correcting dental, facial and jaw misalignment. However, all of them include an initial alignment stage, followed by coordination.


The duration of the treatment depends on each individual case. Most importantly, it requires good gum health and proper oral hygiene.
