During the growth and development of the human body, correction of occlusion pathology is carried out by stimulation or, conversely, by slowing down the growth of the jaws. Correction of occlusion and posture in adult patients is a more difficult, but feasible, task. With the help of modern technologies and new techniques, it is possible to obtain positive results.
