The purpose of fixed or mobile orthodontics is to correct discrepancies, bite and malocclusion. When the malposition or the malocclusion is already reported, a corrective orthodontic therapy could be done; if no anomalies were recorded but a future problem could be expected, an early orthodontic treatment can be done. The lack of orthodontic treatment does not allow to correct or stop an anomaly of dental or skeletal position.

What is orthodontics?
Impressions and X-ray are initially performed for the study of the clinical case and also the measurement of the bone structures as well as the relationship between the dental jaws. Once the kind of treatment has been defined (fixed or mobile), further impressions are taken for the production of the custom-made device that will be applied to the teeth. The appliance and the progression of the therapy need a follow-up on a steady-timed and recurring control visit.
We are experienced in traditional metallic fixed orthodontics, the so-called “multibrackets,” as well as the “aesthetic orthodontics” with ceramic or tooth-colored (the same color of the tooth) brackets; we are also experienced in “lingual orthodontics,” the so-called “invisible”, because it is placed on the inner surface of the teeth. Finally, we have practiced several removable orthodontic techniques for children and adults, as well as the famed “aligners” to act on dental malpositions with the well-known “transparent” aligners.
