What Is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a form of dentistry that deals with the diagnosis, prevention and correction of misaligned teeth and jaws. Crooked and dispositioned teeth are harder to clean and are highly prone to decay, early tooth loss and periodontal diseases. Various types of fixed and removable appliances are used to help move teeth, retain muscles and alter the growth of jaws.

 

Fixing orthodontic problems is not only about cosmetics and self-confidence. There are important dental health reasons and benefits as well. You might need orthodontic treatment if you are facing issues like overbite, underbite, crossbite, open bite, misplaced midline, spacing or crowding. All these can lead to difficulty in chewing, speaking, and can also cause muscle tension and pain. Braces, headgears, removable appliances, retainers and oral surgeries are the orthodontic treatments that can be used to correct your bite and smile.
