Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that deals with the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of misalignment of the teeth and jaws. Orthodontists use various methods such as braces to correct malocclusion such as underbite, underbite, crossbite and open bite.

Orthodontic treatment not only improves the appearance of a patient’s teeth and smile, but also has a positive effect on oral health by improving chewing and speaking function as well as preventing problems with the teeth, gums and temporomandibular joints. Orthodontic treatment can be performed on children, adolescents and adults.

Orthodontics range of services

The range of orthodontic services includes a wide range of techniques and methods of treating malocclusion. Depending on the individual patient’s case, orthodontists may use one or more techniques to achieve the best result.

Here are some of the most common orthodontic services:

  1. Fixed braces – orthodontic appliances consisting of metal brackets and wires that are glued to the teeth and gradually move them to the right position.
  2. Ceramic appliances. Similar to fixed braces, but ceramic, transparent brackets are used instead of metal brackets, making them less visible.
  3. Lingual appliances. These are fixed braces in which the brackets are placed on the inside of the teeth. This makes them almost invisible from the outside.
  4. Overlay cameras. Transparent trays worn over the teeth that gradually move the teeth into the desired position.
  5. Surgical treatment – in some cases, when the malocclusion is very serious, it may be necessary to undergo surgery to reposition the jaws.
  6. Retention – after the end of orthodontic treatment, patients can receive a retainer that keeps the teeth in the desired position and prevents the return of malocclusion.

All these orthodontic services are designed to improve the aesthetics and function of the bite and prevent problems with the teeth, gums and temporomandibular joints.


The history of orthodontics dates back thousands of years. The first attempts to straighten teeth date back to antiquity and even earlier eras. Already in ancient Egypt, wires and splints were used to improve the position of the teeth. Similar methods were also used by the Greeks and Romans.

In the Middle Ages, orthodontics was not developed, and the treatment of malocclusions was performed by dental surgeons or barbies. Only in the 18th and 19th centuries did the first specialists dealing exclusively with orthodontic treatment appear.

In the 1920s, a new technique of orthodontic treatment appeared that revolutionized this field of medicine – it was the technique of a fixed appliance, consisting of brackets and wires. In the 1970s, the first ceramic braces appeared, which were less visible than traditional metal braces.

Since then, orthodontics has been constantly developing and improving treatment techniques. By introducing newer and more advanced technologies. Such as overlay appliances or lingual appliances. Along with technological and medical progress, the treatment of malocclusion becomes more and more precise and effective. Orthodontists have more and more tools to achieve the best possible outcome for their patients.
