Pensando más allá del alambre: la importancia del estilo de vida en la ortodoncia

Palabras clave

estilo de vida
hábitos nocivos
movimiento dental
peso corporal


Los estilos de vida son patrones de comportamiento que caracterizan a un individuo. Cada día hay más evidencia que soporta que los comportamientos y los hábitos de vida condicionan la salud. La ortodoncia no puede ser ajena al estilo de vida de cada una de las personas que busca tratamiento; por el contrario, debe darle gran importancia a cada uno de los factores comportamentales para poder llegar a un diagnóstico y a una elaboración individualizada de un plan de tratamiento. El objetivo de esta revisión de literatura es analizar cómo influyen la actividad física, la nutrición, el peso corporal, los hábitos alimenticios y nocivos en la práctica ortodóncica.
