It is recommended to start the processes of preventive orthodontic treatment on time, but it is important to know that it is never too late to start the treatment. It is always worth spending time on orthodontics, because straight, well aligned teeth is a determining element both of our face and personality too.

The causes of Crooked, Irregular and malpositioned teeth can be countless, most often related to genetics, due to anatomical factors, causes and other mechanical effects (eg.: childhood thumb & finger-sucking).

It is important that orthodontics also endores, contributes to the dental health ( health of teeth) beside aesthetic effect of course, since teeth can be more easily cleaned, thus preventing tooth decay and various diseases of the periodontal apparatus (eg.: paradontitis). The bite becomes anatomically proper, affecting the functioning of the digestive organs, thus improving the quality of life.

Is there an age limit for orthodontics?

Thanks to advanced technology approaches and solutions, orthodontics are nowadays not only available for children. In adulthood, you don’t have to give up the idea of staright, aligned teeth if you didn’t have the chance to do so in childhood. In case of orthodontic treatment in adulthood , the jaw and teeth (dentatura) have already developed completely, for this reason other devices are needed. There are many options to choose from, depending on whether you want to wear fixed orthodontic apparat (non-detachable , applied during the time of treatment) or only at night, respectively how discreet the appearance of the device is.

Thanks to the use of modern orthodontic tools and methods in our clinic, and as a result of accurate design, we can achieve a perfect aesthetic experience. Your speech will not only be clearer and more understandable, but the quality of your life will also improve.

What results can you expect after orthodontics?

Thanks to orthodontics, there will be no more crowded and crooked teeth and also the front teeth will be aligned to their right place. For children, the space for not yet erupted teeth can be reserved, sustained, which makes it unnecessary to use the orthodontic treatment again after the eruption of wisdom teeth.

With straight, aligned teeth, speaking and eating are easier as the bite becomes appropriate. You can keep your organized teeth perfectly clean, so you can avoid tooth decay and tooth loss. Thanks to the harmonious face profile, you will be more confident not to mention your surrounding will also immediately sense.

Do you need tooth extraction before orthodontics?

Many fear that one or two teeth are going to be extracted before orthodontics. It may be that in many dental clinics would rather pull out the teeth (because it is simpler), but we will do our best to avoid having to extract any of the teeth. The modern orthodontic devices used in our clinic and with the help of the so-called Damon technology, we can solve almost any crowdedness without the need of any tooth extraction.

Due to softer forces, the muscles of the lips holds the front teeth and the dental arch extends laterally. Thus, there is room for the crowded teeth in the dentatura without tooth extraction and bad bite and any disalignment of the teeth can be easily corrected. However, it is important to note that there are situations where it is not possible to have enough space for the arrangement of the teeth and extraction is indeed necessary, but this happens only in a few cases.

Dental care during orthodontic treatment

Some people believe that orthodontic makes it difficult, almost impossible to clean teeth, so they want to choose a removable device. However, this is a misbelief. For fixed devices, it is important to use a special toothbrush specifically designed for this purpose.

In addition, we recommend using a interdental brush and dental floss that completes oral care. Particular attention should be paid to oral care during orthodontic treatment, since there is a risk of gingivitis, after which in some cases the almost complete process of orthodontic treatment should restart from all over the beginning.
