Orthodontics is a part of dentistry that deals with the abnormalities in the position of the teeth (malocclusion), especially with dental crowding, to create an ideal smile aesthetics and functionality.
These alterations, if not efficiently corrected on time, may in fact compromise the general aesthetic of the face and cause respiratory, chewing and phonatory disorders.
The orthodontic practice, in some cases, needs to be integrated with orthognatic surgery, especially in situations with specific skeletal defects, which are not solvable with the only use of standard orthodontic braces.
In the past few years there have been many advances in orthodontics: orthodontic solutions available today are more and more innovative, custom designed to meet any requirement and with a minimum aesthetic impact thanks to transparent, so invisible, masks. It is possible to undergo an orthodontic treatment in any age: in early years (5-9 years), in youth age (9-16 years) and in adulthood, with no age limits.
