Child Braces
Of primary importance for the treatment of malocclusion and early diagnosis of the defect. We must always keep in mind that prevention is better than cure. Early treatment can actually detect the onset of many malocclusions. The orthodontist is able to recognize the cause of disharmony cranio-facial, dental malocclusion and dysfunction of muscle and thus is able to take action to eliminate them. A visit early, before most the first 5-6 years of life, it is therefore important to see if there is a good harmony between the components that make up the anatomical and dental craniofacial architecture. If this is not the case, it is essential to intervene as soon as possible to restore a balance and achieve a proper occlusion. In the teeth of the child to be found many pathological conditions (bad habits, facial type, family history) to be managed by the orthodontist. Ignoring such conditions would certainly the onset of a malocclusion, the interception is the way to ensure the development of a good occlusion. In some cases, early orthodontic therapy, while improving the situation in general, can not solve it completely and will need to program a fixed appliance orthodontic treatment with multi-bracket leading to the final correction in the permanent dentition, ie after 11-12 years.
Lingual Braces

In fact, more and more adults, needs to periodontal preprosthetic or for aesthetic reasons, are in need of orthodontic treatment multibracket. Show a smile "perfect" is a modern form of aggression that gives stability and psychological security to those who performed. The lingual orthodontics is meeting this need more and more design and function, with the application of a device invisible on the inner surface of the teeth. New attacks and new lingual arch shape memory have made this technique more and more advanced and improved patient comfort. In addition to the many aesthetic advantages, the Lingual Orthodontics allows a more uniform and body movement of the teeth, so it is very suitable in adults with periodontal problems or not. The timing of treatment are comparable to those achieved with other techniques facial or external, and indeed in some cases, treatment may speed up the lingual therapy. The initial discomfort resolves within a few days. The new units will not affect the internal phonetic and allow a completely normal social life, being completely invisible.

Dental Implants
Implantology for many years now has become an excellent alternative to traditional prosthesis that restores the missing teeth with only the reduction of adjacent teeth to stumps to make bridges or dentures in the absence of natural pillars. The modern osseointegrated implant allows for the creation of new bone anchors with success rates around 95 to 98%. The system is in essence a titanium screw that is placed through a simple surgical procedure within the jawbone. In this procedure, the classical system remains submerged in the bone for a period ranging from 4 to 6 months because they establish the necessary links implant osseointegration. After this period you run with a second, milder stage surgical placement of a titanium pillar always on the facility to perform the functions of a natural stump-tendoci allow to prepare first a temporary and then permanent teeth. Implant therapy described here in simple terms is still subject to clinical examination of the patient, radiographic assessments and routine blood checks.

We speak more properly of root canal of a tooth when it comes to suffering from acute inflammation of the pulp and root canal treatment when you are instead faced with a dental element with any necrotic bone infections such as abscesses or granulomas. Proper root canal treatment is subject to thorough cleaning and shaping of root canals or to peak with an equally precise and seal the same with suitable materials such as gutta percha. The endodontic treatment allows you to keep still for many years and often indefinitely a dental element that otherwise would be lost in a short time and to cause recurrent infections. A good Endodontics is the most important prerequisite for the preservation of the pillars of our natural chewing apparatus following the loss of which we are forced to resort to more invasive treatments to a fixed prosthesis or implants.
