Orthodontics is the medical-dental specialty dedicated to the prevention and correction of dental -maxillary malposition. The first orthodontic evaluation should be performed between 6 and 7 years of age.
Orthodontic treatment allows smile correction with consequent aesthetic improvement.
Correct alignment of the teeth makes cleaning easier, reduces the incidence of periodontal problems and promotes good masticatory, muscular and joint function of the jaws, contributing to well-being and general health.
Improved dental positioning is achieved through the use of fixed or removable appliances. Generally, the use of removable appliances is associated with earlier ages. However, both can be used in the treatment of a wide range of cases and adapted to each specific situation.
