– Small orthodontic anomalies are corrected with removable apparatus: plates of different construction, external tension or functional apparatus.
– For older patients in the case of orthodontic anomalies fixed orthodontic apparatus – brackets are used; they can be made of metal or of aesthetical type (made of ceramic or sapphire). Also new generation system of non-ligature brackets is applied.
