Adult Treatment

From the ages of 17 – 18 years old onward, the most important thing is prevention to try to maintain your teeth for life.

At this age we correct:

  • Cosmetic issues
  • Spaces between the teeth
  • Loss of teeth
  • Implants
  • Noises or jaw pain when opening and closing the mouth.

Joint pain in the jaw, limited opening, noises in the jaw and chronic headaches are attributed to incorrect contacts of teeth when chewing.

It’s never too late…

Dentofacial deformities are corrected with orthodontic treatment combined with orthognathic surgery and with which an improved smile and occlusion is achieved, with that the patient’s facial appearance is also improved.

Not all patients need surgery, most cases can be corrected using only orthodontics.
