Orthodontics is a dental speciality that studies, prevents and corrects alterations in development, the shape of the dental arches and the position of the jaws, in order to re-establish the morphological and functional balance of the mouth and face, also improving facial aesthetics.


The preoccupation with straightening teeth sometimes makes the public forget the importance of the biological foundations and functional objectives of orthodontics, and of its nature and health framework.


Orthodontics tackles problems that go far beyond the individual and detailed positioning of teeth, and instead deals with the correction of alterations of the jaws, the face and, above all, the functional disorders of mastication.


The appropriate age for treating malocclusions varies according to the type of problem and its severity. It is therefore advisable to consult an orthodontist as soon as an anomaly is discovered. In any case, we recommend that, whether or not a problem is detected, children should be taken for a check-up by the orthodontist at least at the age of six.
Orthodontic treatment is usually associated with adolescence, but, as we will see later, even if treatment is not started at an early age, it is nevertheless important to carry out a check-up to ensure the best dental health for your children.
Orthodontics is a more complex health specialty than it may at first appear. Make sure that only those who are properly trained and, therefore, able to deal with the intricate diagnostic and therapeutic problems, take charge of the case so that the treatment can yield optimal results.


Let us remember, then, that what is normal should not be confused with what is ideal or desired! Orthodontics treats, redirects, accommodates and directs each patient towards their own goal, bringing them back into line with their pattern of growth and development, adjusting their teeth and jaws within the framework of their own normality. Normality, of course, requires certain reference parameters!

Orthodontic treatment aims to achieve the normality of each patient. Normality is what is regular, what is frequent. The ideal, on the other hand, is what we consider to be perfect. When the anatomical components are within the norms that are considered acceptable, a system is configured which, from an orthodontic point of view, without being ideal, is within a functional and aesthetic balance.

Defining beauty is very difficult. However, an attractive face always fits within harmonious proportions, with the personal and racial variations of each individual, where measurements play an important role, but let's remember: only as reference values!

There is a relationship between the position of the teeth and the rest of the jaw and face. That is why it is essential to know how they normally fit together, as the orthodontist's goal is the harmonious assembly of all of them. What the orthodontist does is to shape the relationship between teeth and jaws. The very nature of each patient is what will later add the compensatory adjustments to each case, in accordance with the patient's own facial type, all within the framework of personalised individuality. The orthodontist duly interprets and therefore advises and decides on the variability of the norm, as he/she receives additional training for this purpose.

MIXED DENTISTRY is the dental period between the ages of 6 and 12 years in which the primary teeth are gradually replaced by the permanent teeth. During this phase the primary and permanent teeth will be together.
