What is Orthodontics?
Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry specializing in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of jaw, face and bite irregularities (malocclusions*). Treatment can take a few months, up to several years. The process involves the use of dental braces and other appliances to slowly move the teeth around. Action is usually started at a young age since bones can be moved more easily.

*Malocclusion is the technical term for teeth that don’t fit together correctly. Malocclusions not only affect the teeth but also the appearance of the face. Most malocclusions are inherited; however, some are due to acquired habits such as thumb sucking and tongue thrusting. The spacing left from an adult tooth being extracted or an early loss of a baby tooth can also contribute to a malocclusion.
