Orthodontics and braces
Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry and orthodontic treatment is performed by an orthodontist. Orthodontic treatment can move teeth into the desired position and improve shape and functions of dental arches. Treatment may alter the overall look of the face and functions of muscles and joints. Teeth are moved with the help of slight force caused by functional appliances, usually braces. The treatment may last from months to years depending on the seriousness of the malocclusion and age of the patient.
Braces are appliances used to change position of teeth. Today adult orthodontic treatment uses mainly braces. The orthodontist prescribes you suitable and most comfortable braces according to the required treatment. Before any treatment and prescription of braces it is necessary to consult an orthodontist in order to determine the nature of treatment the mouth needs. You are welcome to contact our specialists for advice and to determine the type of braces your teeth need.
