The dentistry specialty that corrects the dental malposition in order to stablish a correct function (chewing, breathing, phonation) and good aesthetics. Correctly aligned teeth assure us a more attractive smile, the prevention of gingival illness, caries, dental erosion and temporomandibular joint disorder.
The best age to the first checking with the orthodontist is about 7 years old, the ideal moment to begin with preventive treatments with removable equipment (detachable dental appliance that can help us to correct some maladjustment on the maxillary and prepare a place for definitive teeth). There is no age limit for a treatment with fix (brackets) or invisible (Invisalign®) orthodoncy; it only takes a single consultation with each patient to select the better in each case.
