Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that specialises in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of problems in the alignment of the teeth and jaws.
Orthodontic treatment is designed to improve the way you smile, which helps boost your self-esteem. Orthodontic treatment can also improve your oral health and function.
To achieve this, we use corrective appliances to bring the teeth and jaws into the best relationship possible. These include removable plates for very simple problems; braces for more complex problems; and additional appliances such as headgear and temporary anchorage devices and even surgery in severe cases.
There are several different types of braces. See braces.
