Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that focuses on diagnosing, preventing and treating jaw, bite, teeth malalignment and face irregularities. An orthodontist adjusts and straightens crooked teeth and help to make your smile more attractive. Orthodontists are specialists who are trained to correct minor and major misalignments of teeth. You may need to visit an orthodontist if you have; misaligned teeth, gapped teeth, bite problems, overlapping teeth and problems caused by childhood thumb and finger sucking.
Depending on the severity of a dental problem, orthodontic treatment may require one to three years of treatment. After treatment, retainers are used to ensure that teeth remain in the same ideal position.
