Orthodontics is a clinical specialized branch of dentistry that deals with the correction of irregular positioning of teeth and jaws through the application of the most modern treatments and appliances, efficiently and safely. Curved or misaligned teeth disrupt aesthetics and impact the health of the oral cavity. However, besides the aesthetic aspect, the goal of orthodontics is also to address painful conditions and disorders of the chewing system. Each orthodontic treatment starts with a specialist examination. At Dental Orthodontic Center Dr. Bandic, the examinations, consultations, and therapy are conducted by specialists in orthodontics and jaw orthopedics. There are many indicators by which you can assess whether orthodontic intervention is necessary for you, but only your orthodontist can accurately determine the right orthodontic treatment for you. Using diagnostic tools such as clinical examinations, plastic tooth models, and X-ray images, the orthodontist will create a treatment plan that best suits you and your teeth.

Orthodontic treatment starts with diagnostic procedures, including intraoral and extraoral photography, taking impressions for study models, and X-rays: orthopantomogram and lateral cephalogram. After a thorough analysis, the final decision about therapy is made. Besides aesthetics, the goal of orthodontics is to address painful conditions and disorders within the dental system. Orthodontic treatments involve the use of mobile or fixed devices and an individual approach to each patient. Dental Orthodontic Center Dr. Bandic offers all types of fixed and mobile orthodontic therapies in accordance with real needs. 

Orthodontic therapy is one of the best preventive measures that will prevent the occurrence of cavities in hard-to-reach areas for tooth cleaning. Besides functional improvements, the aesthetic and psychological changes in the patient justify wearing orthodontic appliances. The results of orthodontic therapy are lasting and allow patients to achieve the smile they desire. When considering possible orthodontic interventions, attention should be paid to many factors, but now that you know more about what orthodontics is, why it is essential, and how it works, we are confident that you are on the right track to ensure a beautiful and healthy smile with the help of our orthodontic specialists.

Orthodontic appliances, or as we often call them, braces, have been a key part of every orthodontic therapy for years, working on improving the health and functionality of teeth in addition to aesthetics. Although children and young people are the most common group when it comes to wearing orthodontic appliances, it does not mean that adults cannot be orthodontic patients. The duration of orthodontic therapy depends on the specialist's assessment and the plan created after a detailed analysis of all factors (between 12 and 24 months). To make the therapy fully effective, it is necessary to follow the instructions given by your orthodontist. Inadequate maintenance of dental appliances, missing scheduled check-ups, and uncontrolled wearing of braces can significantly affect the duration and effectiveness of the therapy.

Orthodontic appliances are divided into two groups: fixed and mobile, which specialists prescribe according to your current condition and the needs for orthodontic intervention. Mobile and fixed orthodontic appliances are often used in combination, depending on the complexity of the condition and the needs of the patient requiring therapy. Modern orthodontics is not limited by age, and it is often closely related to other specialized branches of dentistry, such as prosthodontics, periodontics, and implantology. Such an interdisciplinary approach achieves maximum aesthetic and functional results.

Orthodontic appliances must be adequately maintained and used strictly according to the orthodontist's instructions. There are several steps to consider when starting your orthodontic therapy and using one of the solutions (fixed or mobile orthodontic appliance), and some of them are:


Avoid crispy, sticky, and hard foods, high-sugar drinks, and sweets to reduce the risk of cavities and potential damage to braces and the entire orthodontic appliance.


Clean your teeth and braces at least twice a day, and always after each meal. Use specialized brushes, dental floss, and mouthwash to maintain oral hygiene and preserve your orthodontic appliance.


Respect the scheduled appointments with your orthodontist and regularly go for check-ups of your teeth and the braces you are using.
