Fixed treatment is made with retaining metal/porcelain parts, which are attached to the front surface of the teeth. It is routinely applied to the anterior surface of the teeth. In another form of orthodontic treatment, it can be applied to the surfaces of the teeth on the tongue side. This form of treatment is called lingual orthodontics.

What will my orthodontic treatment be like? Is it a plug-in or fixed wire? How will I decide?

The most important factor that determines the treatment method is the skeletal condition of your teeth and jaws. Orthodontic treatments with removable appliances are valid in limited cases. We prefer removable appliances more frequently in the 7-12 age group.

What is Orthognathic Surgery?

Orthodontic treatment has limits in correcting the teeth. In cases where the jawbone is skeletally in the wrong position, correction is performed with jaw surgery after orthodontic treatment. Skeletal deformities are mostly familial. If there is such a problem in the family, the development of children requires close follow-up.
