What is Orthodontics?

The treatments involve using specially made braces for your oral condition. The expert, who handles such cases and carries out the treatment is called an orthodontist. This professional possesses the necessary knowledge and skills, beyond the standard dental school curriculum, to diagnose, prevent and treat all types of facial and dental irregularities. Orthodontic treatment caters to both functional and aesthetic aspects by properly aligning and straightening the teeth.
