…is a branch of dentistry which corrects the position and distribution of teeth and the relationship of the upper and lower jaw.

The goal of orthodontics is not just aesthetics. It should be noted that, except for beautiful appearance, a proper tooth distribution is also important for the health of the entire chewing system, muscles, and the jaw joint.

The distribution of teeth of the upper and lower jaw must be aligned with the chewing muscles and the jaw joint. That is the only guarantee for a stable and long-lasting result. Today, orthodontic shifting is increasingly used as a preparation for fixed prosthetic restorations (such as implants, dental bridges, crowns…).

Nowadays, orthodontic therapy is not a luxury, it is a necessity which must not be neglected. Positive results of orthodontic therapy are permanent.


Why not preserve your teeth?

Removable orthodontic appliances


Removable appliances can be removed by the patient himself, while fixed or popularly called brackets stay on the teeth permanently until the end of orthodontic therapy. The fixed appliances are implemented by the orthodontist directly in the mouth, and the removable appliances are made in a dental lab. 

There are no better and worse appliances: the choice of appliance depends on the indication. Removable appliances, which were once used by most children and adults, are now increasingly replaced by fixed appliances. Removable appliance therapy is restricted to a short period of intense growth and development during puberty. The so-called plates (upper and lower removable appliance) were sometimes used as the main therapeutic agent in adult patients.


Fixed appliance therapy


In most cases, fixed appliance therapy is indicated in adult patients. Fixed appliances may be aesthetic (transparent braces which are very faintly visible) and we can also offer the so-called fast brackets. These are self-ligating brackets which offer the patient better comfort, aesthetics, and speed. These brackets look nice on teeth. Most fixed appliances are glued to the outer side of the teeth, but there are also brackets which are glued to the inner side of the teeth – the so-called lingual brackets. After completing the therapy with a fixed orthodontic appliance, it is still necessary to wear a mobile retention appliance for some time to stabilize the teeth and keep them in place. Retention appliances can be transparent foil or wire appliances. White brackets are faintly visible on the teeth and are therefore aesthetically acceptable. In most cases, fixed orthodontic appliances are worn on the upper and lower teeth, and very rarely on only one jaw. At the 2 DENT Polyclinic, we use orthodontic self-ligating systems of brackets produced by GA, Ormco, Forestadent, 3M-Unitec, Dentaurum and the like.

At the 2 DENT Polyclinic, we also offer INVISALIGN splint orthodontic therapy. Invisible, pleasant, and quick therapy with transparent splints.


Self-ligating brackets



The advantage of this kind of brackets is reduced friction at the beginning of the therapy, which creates a milder force. This makes the systems more comfortable for the patient, correcting teeth is faster, therapy is shorter, and hygiene of brackets is easier.






After wearing a fixed appliance, patients are obligated to wear retention devices. The purpose of retention is to keep the teeth in the obtained position until the growth, the build-up of supporting tissues, and the maturation of the bone are completed. This is the most important part of the overall therapy. The tissue takes a while to adapt to the new situation. After that, the teeth get the necessary stability. A certain number of patients require long-term, i.e. lifelong fixed retention.
