Orthodontics

It's never too late! Computer-guided orthodontics for adults
Rare are the lucky ones who have a perfect teeth alignment. Contemporary humans’ jaw became much smaller with evolution than their ancestors’ who had to chew tough food. That is why our teeth often lack space needed for their proper arrangement.

Teeth that are too close together or improperly arranged are hard to brush and it makes them prone to cavities, tartar and periodontal diseases. Malposition also means the improper chewing force distribution, which can lead to enamel cracking, uneven teeth deterioration, damaged attachment apparatus and jaw joints disorders. The masticatory ability depends on the intensity of disorders, but it’s usually reduced, which is also bad for the digestive system, whereas the speech sound disorders can also be a threat to psychosocial development. However, aesthetics is the main reason patients decide to undergo the orthodontic treatment.
