WHAT IS ORTHODONTICS
Orthodontics is a branch of dental medicine dealing with the diagnosis and correction of dental and maxillary abnormalities, correct alignment of the teeth on arches and restoration of the occlusion, i.e. the articulation of the teeth on the two arches, using the orthodontic devices.
Based on diagnostic tools including full medical and dental history, clinical examination, study model and x-rays and special photos, the orthodontist will develop an individual treatment plan.
There are many types of fixed and mobile devices for realigning teeth, re-enhancing muscles and influencing the growth of jaws. Orthodontic devices work by exerting a slight pressure on the teeth and jaws, achieving the desired result.
