Compression, or lack of space for teeth in the mouth, is very common today in the Western world.
The stomatology branch that specializes in correcting the position of teeth in the mouth is called ORTHODONTICS.
We will recommend the best procedure to correct the position of your teeth in an optimal time frame, considering the individual problems you may be dealing with.
The patient should have his or her first visit to the orthodontist around the age of eight. If the anomaly or anomalies should require that the therapy begin as soon as possible, our specialist orthodontist will refer you to take a complete x-ray of the mouth and make impressions of your lower and upper jaw.
After the jaw model is analyzed, the course of treatment is determined. In the early stages of a child’s life, the most common orthodontic therapy is wearing mobile braces (braces that can be taken out/removed) – this treatment is known as INTERCEPTIVE ORTHODONTIC THERAPY. The aim of this early therapy is correcting anomalies and decreasing the time spent wearing fixed braces later on in life. Directions are given about quitting potentially harmful habits, such as lip biting, infantile swallowing, thumb sucking, etc.
