Orthodontics

Orthodontics; It is the specialty of the branch of dentistry that diagnoses and checks the harmony relations of mismatched and crooked teeth, tries to prevent this situation and treats it.

For disorders such as the lower jaw being forward or backward, the treatment method is decided by taking into account the age of the patient. If the patient is in adolescence and the lower and upper jaw structure is backward, treatment is possible with orthodontic techniques.

If the patient is an adult, the treatment of skeletal disorders is carried out in collaboration with orthodontics and surgery. Depending on functional disorders, e.g. Jaw disharmony may be observed in situations such as mouth breathing. In a mouth-breather person, the upper part of the chin will remain narrow and will be in a V-shape.

Situations that should not be done and have become habits, such as using a bottle or a pacifier for a long time, thumb sucking, and nail biting, may cause orthodontic disorders. These habits should be treated as early as possible.

It is important to prevent these habits at an early age in order to complete skeletal development.
