Our Lima dental clinic offers four methods to align teeth:
- Fixed Orthodontics
- Orthognathic Surgery
Fixed orthodontics are treatment that uses metal or sapphire ceramic braces that adhere to the teeth to provide correct alignment. These braces are smaller than conventional braces and utilize a high-precision modern system of torques and angles for each individual tooth.
Orthopedics are a treatment done from 5 years of age, which achieves the correct alighment of the jawbones, avoiding deviations or asymmetries.Orthopedics achieves a perfect profile in children, which in many cases avoids future orthodontic treatments, extractions, and orthognathic surgery. Orthopedics are only effective up until 10 to 12 years of age. The sooner our cosmetic dentists can identify the need for orthopedics at our Lima dental clinic, the more effective the treatment.
Orthognathic surgery is used when the upper and lower jawbones do not have proportional size, resulting in better facial aesthetics and symmetry.
