Orthodontics

Orthodontics deals with the treatment of malocclusion and irregularities in the teeth setting.  Malocclusion reflects the appearance of the face, which often correlates with self-esteem and confidence, also white and well-cared teeth do not compensate for the correct setting.


Braces for children and the elderly Orthodontic treatment can be carried out both in children and adults. In the case of fixed braces it is required to have permanent teeth (excluding persistent deciduous teeth).

In Mediss dental clinics the orthodontic treatment is carried out by dentist Katarzyna Rozmus, who can be proud of many successes in this field. The treatment with fixed braces is an area which she completely fulfills herself in and devotes most of the time to it.

Fixed braces consist of brackets and rings fixed to the teeth and the wire which passes through them and which is attached with elastic ligatures.

The time of the treatment with braces depends on the corrected malocclusion and cooperation of the patient (regular check-ups, hygiene, wearing elastic traction).

Fixed braces can be aesthetic (composite, ceramic – the price from 2000 zł)
