“The presence of a disorder at temporo-mandibular level can cause pain and functionality problems. We are ready to guide and educate about mandibular disorders and treat any condition.”

– Dr. Ela Bănică, founder Ortho Institute


ATM Pathologies

Temporo-mandibular syndrome (ATM) involves a variety of symptoms and refers to complex articulation of the jaw, head neack and shoulders muscles, having a tight connection with dental occlusion (bite) and the nervous system.

Diagnosis can be a challenge, because many of the symptoms seem not to be connected between them or with a problem whose cause can be find at jaw level. Symptoms may vary between migraines, neck pains, ears problems, dizziness, facial pain and sudden fatigue.


We offer more than just straightened teeth. Our approach is a general one, we look at the patient from head to toe, explain and educate about the connection between dental problems and other bodily disorders. We believe that with a harmonious smile you can build a state of well-being and health.

  • In the case of children, we gently guide the harmonious development of the face and correct the vicious oral habits, before the age of 10, when the facial bones begin to toughen. They deserve healthy smiles!

  • The adolescent is unique and so is his or her treatment at Ortho Institute. As a parent, you will see him or her gaining more and more confidence during the orthodontic treatment that corrects crooked teeth, uneven spacing, overbite and inverse occlusion.

  • Healthy teeth can be displaced at any age. The SureSmile technology makes the treatment of malocclusion easier and more effective than ever, with less discomfort, fewer visits to the clinic and shorter treatment periods.
