The importance of having straight teeth is not only about esthetics but it also improves hygiene, function and
it even influences body posture.
Orthodontics is the area specialized in diagnosis, prevention and treatment of dental malocclusions and also
complaints in the temporomandibular joint.
In Orthodontics we can distinguish two different approaches:
Done in children aiming to detect and treat problems of the stomatognathic system (bone, muscles and
teeth) preventing them to evolve to more serious conditions, guiding the growth to a more favorable status.
Braces with either of metal or ceramic (esthetic) brackets.
Now we also have the Damon System which allows treatments to be faster, more comfortable and in the
many of cases avoids the need of dental extractions.
