Orthodontic treatment is the most effective solution for getting back a beautiful natural smile when teeth are not aligned and do not match correctly, generating what is called malocclusion.
The advantages of orthodontic treatments
With the aid of fixed or removable braces, orthodontic treatments guide movement of the teeth, the skeleton structures and supporting tissues (gums and alveolar bone) with the application of a small, yet continual, amount of force. In this way, they are the best solution for solving any problem linked to misaligned teeth: from the stress caused to chewing muscles, to consequent headaches, neck and back pain, periodontal diseases such as caries and temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD) and, by no means less important, aesthetic problems cause anxiety and embarrassment.
Our +HC network will help you to treat all these aspects and give you a healthy mouth and natural smile.
Innovative cutting-edge orthodontic techniques
Our network uses cutting-edge technologies to carefully assess the dental and medical history of each patient and accurately decide on the quickest, made-to-measure orthodontic treatment.
There is no age limit for this treatment, as being an adult presents no contraindications. Over recent years, orthodontics has increasingly specialised in adult treatments, also thanks to the option of aesthetic or invisible braces, which are more popular with adults.
We assist our patients at every stage of their treatment, including the post-op period, providing information and constant, direct support.
When is orthodontic treatment recommended?
Many alterations can affect correct positioning of the teeth, making orthodontic treatment necessary:
Overbite, when the upper front teeth overlap the lower teeth too much.
Underbite, when the lower teeth stick out too much or the upper teeth are too far back.
Crossbite, when upper teeth do not match the lower teeth when closed.
Open bite, when there is too much space between the chewing surface and the upper and/or side teeth when the back teeth are closed.
Incorrectly positioned median line, when the centre o the upper front teeth is not aligned with that of the lower front teeth.
Gaps between teeth
Overcrowding, when the teeth are too close to each other.
