Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that deals with correcting malocclusion and misalignment of teeth.
I will never cease to emphasise how important the correct position of the teeth is.
Not only the aesthetics of the smile depend on it, but also its functionality and health.
Orthodontics in Rome: the “traditional” method
The most commonly used technique to align the teeth of patients of all ages is the so-called “Straight wire”. Being the most widespread, it is also the one most often associated with the concept of “braces”.
This technique uses the tension generated by a metal arc to generate pressure on the teeth and, with the right time, move them to the desired position.
On each tooth a plate is placed, known as a bracket, to which the metal wire is attached.
This particular device is fixed and can only be removed once the treatment is complete.
It is a solution suitable for all ages and needs, but it is often feared because it risks compromising the aesthetics of the smile or you fear that it will hurt.
Don’t worry about it! If you share these concerns, just contact our practice to explore more discreet solutions, such as clear orthodontics.
Orthodontics is very often considered as a treatment “for children” and, although it is not a very well-founded concept, it is easy to understand why.
During the growing age it is common to use an orthodontic device to “intercept” any developing malocclusion.
This is why orthodontics in young patients is called “interceptive”.
That’s right. The position of the teeth and the alignment of the arches can affect the health of the TMJ (temporomandibular joint) and thus be linked to annoyances such as migraine, dizziness or bruxism.
In addition, there is also a correlation between the position of the dental arches and posture. There is often a connection between malocclusion, back pain and postural problems!
Therefore taking care of the position of your teeth is the first step to regain the desire to smile thoughtlessly.
