Orthodontics is one specialist discipline of dentistry and is focussed on the diagnoses, prevention and treatment of problems with the alignment of the teeth and jaws.
Through the design and use of corrective appliances – such as braces, aligners, retainers, plates, headgear and functional appliances – orthodontic treatment is prescribed to bring the teeth and jaws into optimal alignment. It is designed to fix what is termed ‘malocclusion’, which is commonly referred to as having a ‘bad bite’
Some of the problems orthodontics corrects includes; crowded and protruding teeth, under, deep and cross bites, impacted teeth, close spaces between teeth, as well as many others.
Orthodontic treatment to correct bite and jaw problems also helps with your overall oral health. Straight teeth are easier to clean, helping you maintain good oral hygiene, plus a straight smile can improve your confidence.
