Usually the reasons for visiting the orthodontist are of an aesthetic nature. A straight, beautiful smile is currently an indication of taking care of oneself and a disorder in this field is often impacting our self-esteem and how we are seen by the people from our environment.
However, it has to be emphasized, that the orthodontic treatment is conducted mainly for our health. Incorrectly settled teeth are harder to clean, which makes them more prone to caries and periodontal diseases; the surfaces of the teeth excessively grind during eating, which deepens the malocclusion and can lead to disorders of the temporomandibular joints. The malocclusion can cause problems with correct swallowing, pronunciation, muscle tension, as well as problems with the digestive system, when misplaced teeth do not serve their main function – breaking-up food.
We can define different types of malocclusions:
It is common for the different types to overlap, and then we call these defects mixed defects. Usually malocclusions are accompanied by dental defects (rotations, inclinations, displacements), which can also occur on their own and are often a consequence of a neighboring or opposite teeth loss.
At MALO CLINIC we offer treatment with different types of braces:
Orthodontical problems often influence the social and professional spheres of our lives, they can lead to a situation, in which we are ashamed to smile. A properly conducted treatment guarantees a better look and restoring the self-esteem.
Crowded, crooked teeth are significantly complicating keeping a correct hygiene of the oral cavity. Correcting the positions of teeth in an arch is crucial for preventing caries and periodontal diseases.
In case of patients with malocclusion, and especially with an incorrect maxilla and mandible placement, improvement in the chewing function guarantees better fragmentation of food, better digestion, and so the correct nutrition of the body.
Elimination of problems connected to breathing and improvement in verbal communication are key factors for the patient’s health and comfort.
In many cases the orthodontic treatment prevents complications and pathological lesions of a temporal mandibular joint. Such complications and lesions can become a cause of chronic pain and dizziness, nausea and limitations in opening and closing the mouth.
