Orthodontics

The branch of odontology concerned with correcting the defects and irregularities of the position of the teeth is orthodontics. Teeth that are crowded and don’t have enough space for their correct positioning are difficult to clean, resulting in the formation of cavities, tooth loss or gum diseases.

For your oral health, crowded teeth or without enough space for their correct positioning are difficult to clean, resulting in the formation of cavities, tooth loss or gum diseases.

As for aesthetics, a beautiful smile will improve our mood, reinforce our self-esteem and make us more confident in ourselves and our relationships.

We recommend that the first visit to the orthodontist is at seven years old, but this is not a rigid rule, as certain issues should be solved earlier on.

Nowadays we can perform these treatments in adults as well, something unthinkable in former years.

This depends on the type of treatment that is required and its complexity. On average, the estimated duration of the treatment is between 12 and 36 months.

Treatments are done with fixed or removable braces, depending on the patient’s problem.

Treatments are carried out with mechanical or transparent elements; the last ones have a better aesthetic quality to facilitate adaptation to the daily routine when it comes to interpersonal relationships.

Nowadays, there are several types of braces that will suit your needs.

Whether you prefer to minimise costs as much as possible, or you would rather wear braces that are almost unnoticeable, we are here to advise you and help you find the braces that are better suited for you.

Metal braces
Metal braces are the most commonly worn by children. They are affordable and easy to manipulate. They stand out in the mouth the most due to their material and colour. But, if you don’t mind that your braces are visible and want a more affordable option, these are the braces you are looking for.

Ceramic or sapphire braces
Ceramic braces are made with similar materials to the previous ones, but with the advantage that they are transparent, so they are harder to spot when you smile. On the other hand, they are also more expensive. In this same vein, we also offer sapphire braces, that use a different material but are almost identical to ceramic ones. If you want to take aesthetics into account and have your braces be as unnoticeable as possible despite the extra cost, these are your best choice.

Lingual orthodontics
Lingual orthodontics have the particularity that they are placed in between the gums, behind the teeth, in a way that it is completely invisible. The disadvantage, aside from a steep price, is that it’s not suited for everyone’s dental problems.

Invisible braces
The invisible braces, also called Invisalign, consist on a plastic mold that is placed on the teeth and that is removed when eating. It is totally invisible, so no one will know you are wearing it. However, due to their aesthetic value, it’s one of the most expensive orthodontic treatments available, and it’s only suited to correct minimal or unimportant problems.
