Orthodontic treatment is more than just giving your face a better appearance. It can help preserve the health and proper functioning of your teeth and jaw bones. Crowded teeth are much harder to clean, you know, and they, if left untreated, can cause serious problems like caries or other relevant dental diseases,and can even lead to loss of teeth. Teeth and jaw bones with irregularity and functional abnormalities can result in the development of paradentosis which, in turn, can lead to loss of teeth. To avoid these potential dental risks and to correct existing functional abnormalities and, last but not least, to restore your smile, your teeth – if you are affected - should be subjected to orthodontic treatment.

For timing to start applying orthodontic treatment, usually the age at which parents start making their children give up their bad habits like thumb-sucking, improper movements of the chin and tongue – abnormalities which can lead to the degenerative development of jaw bones and teeth but which can be recognised still in infancy - is usually considered. If, however, left untreated or neglected, they can later be treated only with difficulty or by surgical method. Thus, orthodontic treatment can be started even as early as at the age of four when small children have only deciduous teeth. In such cases, they are usually given a simple removable orthodontic appliance or their dental abnormalities are corrected - without using any appliance - simply by applying proper correctice exercises of the mouth eliminating unwanted outer conditions (bad habits). Typically, most of the dental abnormalities are started to be treated at the time when the child’s jaw bones and teeth curves have not taken their final shapes and possible abnormalities can still be properly corrected. At this age, the development of their jaw bones and teeth can be positively influenced and kept under constant control in he right way by using comparatively simple orthodontic appliances, usually removable or small-size fixed ones (without the removal of any permanent tooth). But later, with the development of permanent teeth, crowding can only be eliminated by removing one or more teeth and –as a final solution if the problem is more serious – the relevant misalignment between the lower and upper jaws (malocclusion) can only be corrected by a combination of periodontal surgery and orthodontic treatment. So, all in all,it is recommended for parents to consult an orthodontist for advice to check whether their children of the lower grades need to have preventive orthodontic treatment or not.Of course,every specific case is different.It varies with the individual’s age and type of abnormality observed.

No age limit is set. In adulthood, straightened and aligned teeth are equally important. There are proper fixed (donded- to- the-teeth) orthodontic appliances which can be used to move your teeth into the required position. By moving the teeth into the required position we can create the required conditions for prosthesis - the restoration of your missing teeth. By applying orthodontic treatment, the teeth of those suffering from paradontosis can be strengthened in their new position. Thus, adults’ teeth can also be corrected and, for doing so, different kind of porcelain brackets meeting any kind of aesthetic expectations (to be bonded to the front of the teeth) and tooth-straightening, teflon-coated aligners are used. There are also lingual appliances, kind of brackets which may be put on the back of your teeth and remain practically unnoticeable while you speak and restore your aesthetic smile on a permanent basis. Nowadays, a great majority of dental abnormalities can also be treated by using special, transparent, orthodontic brackets to be pulled onto and removed from your teeth.
