Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that specializes in treating patients with improper positioning of teeth when the mouth is closed (malocclusion), which results in an improper bite. Orthodontics also includes treating and controlling various aspects of facial growth (dentofacial orthopedics) and the shape and development of the jaw. An orthodontics specialist is called an orthodontist. Orthodontics also includes cosmetic dentistry; when the patient's aim is to improve his/her dental appearance.
Our expert orthodontists use a range of medical dental devices, including headgears, plates, braces and so on to help in: closing wide gaps between the teeth, making sure the tips of the teeth are aligned, straightening crooked teeth, improving speech or eating (oral function), improving the long-term health of gums and teeth, preventing long-term excessive wear or trauma (of the teeth) and treating an improper bite.
