It is defined as that branch of dentistry which deals with diagnosis, prevention and treatment of malocclusion, i.e. the wrong position of teeth and jaw bones that affects facial appearance, chewing and smile.
The crowded or misaligned teeth are difficult to clean and they are constantly subjected to various dental and gum diseases.
It is more than necessary that you will be aware that it is very important to go see the dentist for a thorough check-up and for treating malocclusion.
The orthodontist focuses on solving the problems of biting, chewing, teeth alignment and aesthetics. A poor alignment of teeth is both anaesthetic and non-functional, in terms of biting and chewing
There are several types of orthodontic therapy:
- mechanical: include the use of equipment fixed outside the mouth or dentine, using the necessary force to correct the found anomalies;
- functional: they are indicated in order to reduce and eliminate the problems found during the muscular exercises and/or orthodontic equipment which guides the chewing forces;
- surgical: recommended to grown-ups when the classic methods cannot solve the problem;
- premature loss of teeth;
- large teeth on a small jaw;
- misaligned jaw;
