Orthodontics is a branch of dental medicine that deals with correcting the position of teeth, and correcting the fit of the upper and lower jaws. This correction is done using an orthodontic apparatus that can be either fixed or mobile, depending on the indication.
The most effective manner of correcting orthodontic anomalies is the fixed orthodontic therapy, with the installation of orthodontic braces on the teeth and installation of a bar that guides the teeth into the proper position.
There are many positive aspects of orthodontic therapy, and today these are seen more as a necessity than a luxury, include creating the proper position of teeth, which reflects both on the aesthetics of the smile and the face, and improving functionality by ensuring a proper and even bite, which is the prerequisite for the health of the underlying support of teeth and the entire chewing system. There are no age limits for orthodontic therapy.
