When is orthodontic treatment necessary?
An orthodontic treatment (braces) is necessary when there are problems with the bite, the teeth are crowded, or widely separated, there are double rows of teeth giving the impression that they do not fit in the mouth. The patient bites with the upper teeth very far forward or further back than the lower ones, crossing the bite.
In some more severe cases the bite may be deviated to the sides causing the teeth to look unsightly and have poor chewing functionality.
In any case at Clinica Vindas Y Asociados we have our specialist in orthodontics and functional orthopedics of the jaws.

In some cases, the treatment period can be shortened, resulting in a great smile with exceptional comfort.
Maxillofacial Orthopedics treatment in children should be performed when there is a problem in the growth of the maxillary bones. Complications treated by the orthodontic and maxillofacial orthopedic specialist include:
Sagittal bone problems: there is an inadequate growth of the upper jaw or mandible either due to its size (larger or smaller) or its position (forward or backward).
Transverse bone problems: These are compression problems (smaller size) or dilations (larger size) of the upper jaw or the mandible in width. Mandibular deviations to the left or right are also included.
Vertical Bone Problems: When the problems are in the vertical development of the maxillary bones, which causes long faces (due to excessive growth) or short faces (due to lack of growth).
