According to the RAE, orthodontics is the part of dentistry that is responsible for correcting defects in the position of the teeth. Most people need to correct - to a greater or lesser degree - their bite. The main cause of this bite mismatch is derived from genetic inheritance.
Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that aims to repair some of these complications. Generally, dentists recommend starting this type of treatment in childhood or adolescence. In part, because it is during these periods when it is easier to shape and correct the bite.
However, there are currently perfectly compatible and equally effective treatments for adults. Orthodontics for adults is, in most cases, treated with Invisalign. These are removable splints that fit over the jaw. Being transparent, the treatment goes completely unnoticed.
