Orthodontics Conditions

Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that specializes in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of dental and facial irregularities. One of the most common reasons for seeking orthodontic treatment is malocclusion or irregular bite due to teeth that are not positioned correctly. The most common form of treatment used to correct the position of teeth is through the use of orthodontic braces, although there are various other appliances commonly used. With the help of braces a dentist is able to move the teeth into their ideal position to optimize function and esthetic appearance.
