Orthodontia is more than only setting teeth in the right place!
By positioning teeth correctly, the complete function of the chewing system is improved and the risk of caries as well as gum diseases will be reduced. The jaw joint is in balance, due to a healthy chewing ability. If treated in time (best in early infancy) diseases and pain of the jaw joint can be prevented.
Orthodontia can be of great use in speech therapies and is often necessary to prepare teeth for a prosthetic treatment.
The cosmetic effect is closely related to the function. Beautiful, well positioned teeth are attractive; they stand for health and vitality and are part of the general impression of a face.
