Orthodontic treatment in Poland is a dental method of moving or straightening teeth, to enhance the position and the look of the teeth and the way they function. It also helps looking after the long-term health of teeth, gums and jaw joints, by distributing the biting pressure over all your teeth.

Who needs orthodontics in Poland?

If you have any of the following issues you might need an orthodontic treatment:

•    misplaced midline - the center of your upper front teeth is not aligned to the center of your lower front teeth;
•    underbite -  the lower/ upper teeth are too far forward or too far back;
•    spacing - gaps and spaces between the teeth;
•    crossbite - when biting normally, the upper teeth do not fold on the lower teeth;
•    crowding - when there is no space for all the teeth to normally fit within the jaws;
•    overbite - the upper front teeth lie too far forward over the lower teeth.

Types of appliances for orthodontic works in Poland

Fixed and removable appliances are usually recommended in orthodontic treatments in Poland, being used to apply gentle pressure on the jaws and teeth. They will control the growth of the jaws and the movement of the teeth, also restraining the oral cavity's muscles. If such problems are not solved in due time, the dentists may have to proceed to other types of interventions, such as surgical extractions

 Fixed appliances:

•    braces — the most commonly used fixed appliances; they consist of bands/ brackets and wires placed on the teeth and are made of metal or ceramic; bands are fixed around the teeth and they are used as anchors for the appliance and brackets are bonded to the front of the tooth. Monthly adjusted, braces' effect may be seen within months to a few years;
•    space maintainers — used to keep the gap open, when a baby tooth is prematurely lost, by attaching a band next to the empty space; a wire is extended to the tooth on the other side of the gap.
•    special fixed appliances — bands are attached to the teeth in order to control tongue thrusting or thumb sucking.

 Removable appliances:

•    aligners — an alternative to traditional braces; they are invisible and are removed when eating, brushing and flossing.
•    removable space maintainers — they have the same function as fixed space maintainers
•    lip and cheek bumpers —designed to keep a distance between the lips or cheeks and teeth.
•    removable retainers — used to prevent teeth repositioning to their initial position.
