Orthodontics in Romania

A beautiful smile

Orthodontics is a specialty in the field of dentistry that deals with diagnosing, treating and correcting the teeth and jaws that are positioned improperly. An orthodontic treatment can dramatically improve the appearance of the patient’s teeth and smile and furthermore contribute to an individual’s self-esteem. Our dentists in Romania offer complete orthodontics treatments and use modern orthodontic appliances, suited for both young and adult patients.

We invite you to watch the following video about orthodontic treatments and the services provided by our dental clinic:

Orthodontic treatments in Romania

Our dentists and orthodontists in Romania can determine if you can benefit from an orthodontic treatment. After a complete dental examination, one of our dentists will establish a complete and comprehensive dental treatment planOrthodontic treatments usually require between 18 and 24 months in order to achieve the best possible results. During this time you will perform regular visits to our dentist’s office and your progress will be examined so that all necessary adjustments can be made.

Some of the most common types of bites or teeth misplacements which indicate that a patient is a candidate for orthodontic treatment are:

  • – overbite:  when the upper teeth are too far forward over the lower teeth;
  • – underbite: when the lower teeth are too far forward or the upper teeth are too far back;
  • – crossbite: when the upper teeth are not positioned slightly in front of the lower ones when biting normally;
  • – open bite: when the patient has an open space between the biting surfaces of the teeth;
  • – misplaced midline: when the center of the upper front teeth does not line with the center of the lower front teeth;
  • – spacing: gaps or spaces between teeth;
  • – crowding: when there are too many teeth on the dental ridge.

Our dentist might need to perform a dental X-Ray in order to determine the exact cause of the misalignment and develop a treatment plan. You will be recommended the most appropriate type of orthodontic appliance.

We can help you schedule a visit in Romania and a first visit to one of our dental offices.

Orthodontic appliances

There are two types of orthodontic appliances: fixed and removable. They are used to control the movement of the teeth, retrain muscles and influence the growth of the jaws. They work by applying gentle pressure on the teeth and jaws. 

Fixed orthodontic appliances include:

braces: the most common type of fixed appliances; they consist of small and slim brackets made out of metal or ceramic which are placed on the surface of the tooth; they are fixed with bands that act as anchors;

space maintainers: used when a baby tooth is lost prematurely.

Removable orthodontic appliances are:

aligners: an alternative to braces;

removable retainers: they prevent the re-positioning of the teeth to their former position;

jaw re-positioning appliances: used to treat disorders of the jaw;

– lip and cheek bumpers: used to create a temporary distance between the teeth and lips or cheeks.

One of our dentists or orthodontists will offer you complete information about how to care for your braces and prevent other dental problems.
