Fixed orthodontics is addressed to teenagers and adults. It fixes malocclusions and misalignments and is considered an aid for pre-prosthetic or pre-implant surgeries.
Orthodontics can also be applied to young children (interceptive orthodontics). This harmoniously guides the development of the upper and lower jaws. It fixes bad or parafunctional habits.
Orthodontic treatment offers enhanced facial aesthetics, improved smile and occlusion function, lowers the risk of caries, and promotes better oral hygiene by addressing irregular tooth wear caused by malocclusions. Moreover, aligned teeth are easier to clean.
Treating malocclusions positively impacts other aspects related to posture, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, sleep apnoea (OSAS), and bruxism. These issues can be addressed by our orthodontist and gnathologist at Studio APGR.
Ideally, children start losing their baby teeth at the age of 6 or 7, allowing for early detection of any abnormalities in their skeleton or teeth.
Of course! It depends on the patient’s diagnosis and problems. If less invasive treatments can address these problems, the dentist may recommend adopting invisible orthodontics.
