Skeletal occlusion anomalies
Skeletal occlusion anomalies are pathologies characterized by a discrepancy between the location of the jaws in different planes. A combination of these disorders may also occur. Vivid examples of skeletal anomalies: prognathia, cross or bilateral posterior bite, etc.
Effective methods for treating these disorders have been developed in Israeli clinics.

The cost of services is determined by the complexity of the diagnostic and treatment procedures, but in most cases the prices are calculated for patients with different income levels.
Skeletal malocclusion: diagnosis in Israeli clinics
Early diagnosis of such disorders , as skeletal malocclusion, and the correct choice of an effective method of treatment will help to avoid complications in the future, so the doctors of Israeli clinics carry out diagnostic procedures promptly and at a high level. Already on the first day of visiting a medical institution, the patient is examined by an orthodontist. The specialist conducts a detailed examination and identifies (confirms) the presence of skeletal malocclusion. To form an effective treatment plan, x-rays are taken, photos that give a complete overview of the condition of the jaws, casts are made that show the picture as clear as possible.
You can find out in advance the prices of diagnostic procedures, the cost of treatment during an online consultation with a doctor in an Israeli clinic or on the website of the institution. However, it is not necessary to immediately pay the full cost of services - this can be done in stages at each stage.
How are skeletal malocclusions treated in Israel?
Skeletal malocclusion in Israeli clinics is treated with the help of various tested methods that have proven to be the most effective. The choice of one of them is determined by a council of doctors, which makes it possible to eliminate errors. This takes into account the complexity of the pathology and the individual characteristics of the patient. This can be:
- using braces;
- wearing a mouthguard;
- surgical intervention.
Braces are called non-removable orthodontic systems that are installed for children and adults to align the dentition. The design is fixed on both jaws and has a therapeutic effect due to constant mechanical pressure.
Skeletal bite anomalies are also corrected with the help of elastic caps made of polymeric materials. They help with certain simple anomalies and are prescribed at the discretion of the doctor. For example, their use is advisable in the presence of interdental gaps, crowded incisors. In difficult cases, if the patient has pronounced skeletal maxillary bite anomalies, neurological pathologies, complicated periodontal disease, this technique is not suitable.
When the previous methods are ineffective, surgical correction is prescribed. Doctors use this technique for frontal or lateral open bite, chin dysplasia, when skeletal pathology is expressed by facial asymmetry. The surgeon eliminates physiological abnormalities in the most gentle surgical way, after which a period of rehabilitation begins.
Treatment in Israel is the price of services designed for a wide range of patients, highly qualified medical personnel and high quality treatment.
