Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that is responsible for placing the teeth in the ideal position, both for patients to chew and occlude in a harmonious, balanced way and thus offer them the possibility of having a favourable anatomical situation for the development of their jaws.
Furthermore, in many cases, even if the dental relationship is appropriate, it also allows the teeth to be aligned so that they acquire a harmonious and aesthetic appearance, helping to boost the individual's self-esteem and their personal and professional development with an attractive and youthful facial appearance.
One of the aspects that has evolved the most in orthodontics in recent years is the reduction of treatment times, thanks to the development of low-friction, self-ligating techniques such as Damon or differential movement techniques such as Tip-Edge, which have meant that most cases can be resolved in less than 18 months of treatment.
In this post we show, for example, the photographs of a case treated by an orthodontist with expertise in low friction techniquesThe ten-month course shows how to move from an initial situation of significant crowding due to lack of space to a scenario where the teeth are aligned and correctly related to each other.
