Having beautiful and straight teeth is the dream of many of us, but the wrong condition, shape and growth of teeth is responsible for the occurrence and development of malocclusion. Malocclusion can affect a person’s self-esteem and reduce their self-confidence, which often leads to psychological problems. All this causes that the treatment of malocclusion is justified not only at children and teenagers, but also at adults.
The field of dentistry, which treats malocclusion, is orthodontics. It deals with the recognition, treatment and control of the whole process.
What is the treatment of malocclusion at adults?
Treatment of malocclusion at adults, in addition to obvious cosmetic benefits, is also associated with an improvement of the oral health. Due to the presence of overlapping teeth, the cleaning process is difficult and therefore favours the development of caries and inflammation of the oral cavity. It also cause the disturbance of the chewing process, abnormal abrasion of the tooth surface, and, additionally, may cause chronic pain in the neck.
