ORTHOPEDICS AND ORTHODONTICS
A beautiful smile restores your confidence
Orthodontics is responsible for building beautiful smiles by bringing teeth, lips and maxillary bones into harmony. Depending on the age and malocclusion problems, different specific treatments will be carried out for each patient.
The correct placement of the teeth guarantees a better quality of life, recovering the smile and allowing a good functioning of the teeth.
Dentofacial orthopedics is responsible for guiding facial growth through functional devices that focus on the development of the maxillary and mandibular bones. Correct control of bone growth will allow a better eruption of the teeth.

In adulthood we can no longer move the bones, so we carry out treatments where we focus on the movement of the teeth to improve aesthetics, bite and dental hygiene.
The movement of the teeth is carried out by means of a treatment with brackets (metal or aesthetic) or invisible orthodontics, depending on the type of malocclusion and the patient's preferences. Orthodontic treatment can last 12, 18 or 24 months depending on the path the teeth have to take through the alveolar bone, always respecting the biology of each patient. At the Vilar-Sancho clinic, the orthodontist has extensive experience due to her training in Invisalign® , which means that she's able to offer the best treatment currently available.
Mandibular or maxillary alterations in adult patients, which cause functional problems, cannot be corrected by orthodontics alone. ( Creo que suena màs explìcito de esta manera) Therefore it is recommended to have a surgical intervention with a maxillofacial surgeon where the perfect balance is achieved by means of bone movements.
Treatments usually last approximately 2 years, combining orthodontics with bone surgery.
