What is Orthodontics?
Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that specializes in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of dental and facial irregularities. Orthodontic treatment can improve the appearance, health, and function of teeth and jaws. It can also correct or improve bite relationships (the way upper and lower teeth fit together). In some cases, orthodontic treatment can help relieve or prevent other problems, such as TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder or sleep apnea.
While orthodontic treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of dental and facial irregularities, the most common reason for treatment is malocclusion—a misalignment of the teeth or jaws. Malocclusion can be hereditary, meaning it is passed down from one generation to the next. It can also be caused by habits such as thumb sucking or pacifier use, injury to the face or teeth, tooth loss, or uneven growth of the jawbones. In most cases, it is a combination of these factors.
