Procedures in which Dr K. Ratynska-Afek, DDS, specializes
Dr Ratynska-Afek specialises in orthodontic treatment. She treats patients with malocclusion, correcting defects using innovative and diverse types of orthodontic braces. Depending on the particular case, she offers patients permanent or removable braces, and self-ligating systems such as Damon,T1, aesthetic or metal variant. She pays particular attention to early diagnosis and treatment for malocclusion in children and adolescents. Among the types of permanent braces, she uses both standard mental as well as aesthetic, almost invisible crystal. She uses modern treatment techniques to prevent tooth extraction and to reduce the time of treatment, including self-ligating braces such as Damon and invisible removable braces such as Clear Aligner.
Treatment is preceded by a precise, reliable diagnosis of malocclusion and upper and lower jaw impressions. Then she presents the patient with a treatment plan and begins to carry out the procedures.
