There are several techniques to correct misaligned teeth. From the classic brackets we all know to the current devices to remove and put that are also invisible. And advances in orthodontics continue with digital dentistry that allows taking precise digital molds from the patient's mouth .



What is orthodontics?

Orthodontics is the art and science of making a person whose teeth are dislocated and misaligned, we align them with functional objectives and with aesthetic objectives. For that we use diagnostic devices of the highest quality that allow us to know what is the perfect bite of each person and that way we can reproduce it in their own teeth.

What techniques can we find to properly place the teeth?

Orthodontics makes use of different types of appliances. Nowadays there are devices to remove and put invisible even the traditional brackets that are still the best devices to correct the position of the teeth with precision. We also have to think that all orthodontics can not do it alone and today we also use surgery that will help us correct problems that orthodontics is unable to solve on its own and also of prosthodontics. Prosthodontics is the science, or the part of dentistry, that allows us to modify the shape of the teeth and reconstruct them in an ideal way.

What new features and advances can we find in orthodontics?

This is an exciting time in the world of orthodontics and dentistry, we are moving from orthodontics and analog dentistry to digital. Nowadays we are able to take digital molds from the mouth of the patients eliminating the pastes and having a much greater precision. It allows us to digitally manage the diagnosis of patients and their planning.
