What does orthodontics deal with?

Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry which includes treatment of malocclusion. The objective of the treatment is to improve aesthetics and function of the masticatory organ.

At the Wichlińscy Dental Clinics, we focus on constant development and advanced technologies.

Benefits from the normal teeth alignment:

Restored aesthetics of the smile

Facilitating to maintain perfect oral hygiene

Healthy periodontium

Uniform distribution of chewing forces 

Protection against excessive tooth wear

Proper functioning of the temporomandibular joints

When to start treatment?

Contemporary orthodontics has no age limits – treatment is possible for both children and adult patients.

According to the recommendations of the Polish Association of Stomatology, each child should be examined at the age of 9 by an orthodontist to assess development of dentition and – possibly – detect the malocclusion.
