Do you have problems with the alignment of your teeth? Do you feel that the upper and lower arches do not fit correctly when you close your mouth? Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that, precisely, it is responsible for the study and correction of malpositions of the dental pieces and maxillary bones, as well as the modification of complications related to the bite.
The ultimate goal of orthodontic procedures is the rehabilitation of the functionality and aesthetics of the oral and facial cavity, as well as the improvement of the general and oral health of the patient. Thanks to the results of these treatments, occlusion and chewing disorders can be corrected and oral complications, such as the development of periodontal diseases or cavities, can be prevented. In addition, a correct dental alignment and bite can reduce the tension that some malformations can produce on the muscles of chewing. Orthodontics can, in many cases, be one of the most appropriate solutions for temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders.
