Orthodontic Treatment

The formation of the dental arch or dental arch begins with the eruption of the first tooth and this arch will determine the shape of the child's smile as well as the function of the tooth. In addition to the dental arch, the dental supports are also formed around the same time.


Due to various forces in the mouth, there can be changes in the direction in which the tooth erupts and develops, which can lead to problems with jaw functionality. Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry responsible for the regular formation of teeth and dental supports.

Orthodontic treatment isn't only for children, but successful and aesthetic treatments are also possible for adults.
