Orthodontics for children, teenagers and adults

Person with a bright, healthy smile makes positive impression on other people. A nice smile is not only beautiful, it also promotes good health.

  • Straight and evenly spaced teeth are easier to keep clean, resulting in better oral health.
  • Properly aligned teeth chew more efficiently, which may help digestion
  • Aligned teeth create a better bite, which may reduce stress, headaches, and strain on your supporting bone and tissue
  • Crooked and crowded teeth are hard to clean and maintain, which may contribute to conditions that cause not only tooth decay but may lead to gum disease and tooth loss

When left untreated, many minor orthodontic problems may become worse, contributing to abnormal wear of tooth surfaces, inefficient chewing, excessive gum stress on gum tissue, and misalignment of the jaw joints. This can all lead to chronic headaches or pain in the face or neck. Treatments by a specialist to correct minor orthodontic issues are often less costly than the additional dental care required to treat more serious problems that can develop in later years.
Remember: Orthodontics is not just about straightening teeth. Orthodontic treatment may not only improve your smile, but it can improve your health!

Orthodontic treatment phases

Each orthodontic treatment begins with the initial examination performed by a qualified orthodontic specialist. At our Dentalharmony practice, examination, consultation and orthodontic therapy is provided by Dr Tomislav Kusmuk, specialist orthodontist.

You can book your appointment online, by phone , email or easily by visiting our dental office. At the time of the first visit children and teenagers should be accompanied by parent or legal guardian. If you already have X-rays taken within the past 6 months, please assist us by providing them at your first visit.

After the initial examination, you will be knowing if you or your child need an orthodontic treatment. If an orthodontic tretament is needed, further comprehensive diagnostic examinations will be undertaken, in order to receive the best possible and most effective treatment option.

Prior to any orthodontic treatment a full range of diagnostic procedures are made in-house to determine your main orthodontic issues and possible treatment options. These include:

  • Dental photographs
  • Panoramic X-rays
  • Dental impressions and jaw models

Each orthodontic treatment is assisted by photographic documentation, which enables us to study the existing patient’s dental needs and to assess how treatment is progressing. A panoramic X-ray is always taken before the treatment begins. It is used to identify abnormalities and to determine if a particular treatment option will work. It also can be taken in any further phase of the treatment if needed. Taking dental impressions and creating jaw models allow us to study the position of each tooth and the relationships between the teeth and the jaws.

Only after carefully performed analysis can we formulate the best possible treatment plan for each patient.

Retainers are the appliances that keep your teeth straight at the end of treatment. Once the active phase of orthodontic treatment has been completed, it is necessary to passively stabilize the new position of teeth.

Immediately upon the completion of the active phase of orthodontic treatment, the teeth position is still relatively labile, which means that the teeth have a tendency to return towards their initial disadvantaged position. With the help of a metal holder that connects to the inside of the tooth or the retainer (long-term holder), it is ensured that your new, beautiful smile will be lasting.

Which Is Right for You?

  Traditional braces Lingual technique Invisalign aligners
Description Traditional braces are stainless steel brackets and wires that are attached to the outside of the teeth. Wires are adjusted throughout treatment to gradually move teeth into the desired position. Lingual braces are metal brackets and wires that are bonded to the back of teeth. Wires are adjusted throughout treatment in order to gradually move teeth into the desired position. The Invisalign System uses a series of clear, removable plastic trays (aligners) that fit over teeth. Aligners are custom-made and changed every 2 weeks to gradually move teeth into the desired position.
Aesthetics Visible Barely visible Virtually invisible
Costs Costs may vary depending on the complexity of the treatment. Costs may vary depending on the treatment time. Invisalign treatment is more expensive compared to traditional braces treatment.
Efficiency Suitable for nearly all cases Suitable for most cases from mild to moderate complexity.
Oral hygiene Because of fixed braces oral hygiene is harder to maintain.

Invisalign aligners can be removed for normal brushing and flossing, making it easier to maintain a good level of oral hygiene during the treatment.

Comfort Mouth aphthae can be caused by the irritation from components of the braces. Brackets and wires can also cause discomfort and may require increased care and attention by your dentist. A temporary, minor discomfort that last only a few days may be experienced at the beginning of each phase of treatment. This short-term effect is typically described as a feeling of pressure. Speech may be temporarily affected at the beginning of treatment.
Removable Irremovable. Braces are fixed to the teeth for the duration of orthodontic treatment. Removable. Although aligners may be removed, they should be worn at least 20-22 hours a day for best results.

What our patients say about us?

Po preporuci koleginice sam posjetila ordinaciju Dentalharmony. Izuzetno sam zahvalna dr Kusmuku i dr Mirkoviću jer su učinili da sada imam prelijepe zube. Ljudi mi se često obraćaju, pozitivno komentarišući moj novi osmijeh. Koristim i ovu priliku da ih sve uputim na adresu ordinacije Dentalharmony.
Ana, stomatolog
Sve pohvale dr Kusmuku i njegovom timu koji čine čuda. Rješavaju nerješivo! Ja sam bio otpisan slučaj, ali mi je d. Kusmuk uz pomoć Damon bravica, za kratko vrijeme ispravio zube! Po meni je to najbolja ordinacija u našoj regiji.
Goran, inžinjer
Nakon dugog lutanja od jednog do drugog stomatologa, pri čemu nikad nisam bila u potpunosti zadovoljna uslugom, konačno sam dospjela u ordinaciju dr. Kusmuka. Svi doktori su izuzetno stručni i detaljno se posvete pacijentu, jednostavno ulivaju povjerenje od prvog momenta. Atmosfera u ordinaciji je jako ugodna i opuštena, svi su puni pozitivne energije. Toplo vam preporučujem da ih posjetite.
