Orthodontics

Orthodontics is a specialty of dentistry responsible for the diagnosis, prevention, interception and correction of anomalies of tooth position among themselves and with the jaws.
The bad tooth or malocclusion positioning results from hereditary factors, environmental factors or a combination of both. In general it can be considered malocclusion as a result of interaction of several factors (general and local), that influence growth and development of any individual face.
Orthodontic treatment is essential to improve masticatory function, oral health, personal aesthetics and phonetics, promoting an increase in self-esteem and can be a determining factor in social integration.








How do I know I need orthodontic treatment?

You will need to perform orthodontic treatment when you have one or more of the following problems:


  • Crowding
  • Interdental spaces or spacing
  • Underbite
  • Overbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite
  • Midline shift
Crowding

When there is not enough space.

Interdental spaces or spacing

existing spaces between teeth

Underbite

When the lower teeth are much forward relatively to upper ones.

Overbite

When the upper teeth almost completely cover the bottom ones.

Crossbite

Crossbite is a change in the occlusion where one or more teeth have a longer buccal or lingual position. For example, the tooth is closer to the lips or tongue more than normal, in relation to the corresponding opposing tooth in the higher or lower arch.

Open bite

The anterior or lateral opening  area, existing between the upper and lower dental occlusal surfaces, when teeth are “closed”.

Midline shift

When the midline between the maxillary central incisors does not coincide with the midline of the face and / or the midline between the mandibular central incisors.
