MALO CLINIC

 

Fixed and/or removable braces

 
Orthodontics is a specialty of dentistry that deals with malocclusion, i.e. problems in the alignment of the teeth and dentofacial disharmony. Crooked teeth or teeth that do not fit properly are difficult to keep clean and may be lost early due to deterioration and periodontal disease. They also cause additional stress to the muscles responsible for chewing, which can lead to headaches, temporomandibular joint syndrome, and pain in the neck, shoulder and back region.

To correct these problems, the orthodontist often uses fixed appliances and / or removable appliances. In adults with severe bone disharmony, a combination of orthodontics and orthognathic surgery may be necessary to resolve severe cases of bone discrepancies.

Aesthetic Improvement

 
Orthodontic problems often have social and professional consequences, leading to situations of restriction / inhibition of the smile due to shame. Adequate orthodontic treatment allows a marked improvement in the dentofacial appearance, contributing to a high increase in the patient's self-esteem.

Treatments

 
Facial orthopediatrics - from 2 to 8 years old
 
When the child has an abnormal facial development, usually identified by the parents, as the chin too far forward or too far back, when the parents identify an oral breath, or when the child snores. Facial orthopediatrics should be done by an orthodontist in collaboration with other specialties, namely otorhinolaryngology, myofunctional therapy and pediatric dentistry.

These treatments aim to correct the cause of the problem and direct growth and facial development, promoting a change in the structure of the face and teeth.

The child acquires better posture and better function in the oral cavity and body.
 
 
 
When a timely diagnosis is made, the probability of having to resort to more interventional therapies decreases.
 
Interventional or corrective orthodontics - from the age of 12
