How to treat malocclusion


Orthodontics is a field of dentistry that aims to treat malocclusion and restore the normal structure and function of oral organs.

Bite defects cause various complications: they disrupt the aesthetics of a smile or change facial features. Moreover, uneven pressure of the teeth causes damage and abrasion to the enamel. The consequence of malocclusion may also be increased susceptibility to caries, periodontal disease, temporomandibular arthritis and speech defects.

Successful orthodontic treatment can improve the quality of life and cure complexes.

It is reasonable to start orthodontic therapy concerning a child a few years before the end of jaw bone growth, then the treatment options are greater and the effects more satisfactory.
