What is Orthodontics?
Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that specialises in diagnosing, preventing and treating dental and facial irregularities in children and adults. If left untreated, crooked teeth can lead to an improper bite, tooth wear, tooth decay and gum disease. Crooked teeth can also result in a loss of personal self-confidence.
With different kinds of braces, orthodontics can bring your teeth and jaws into proper alignment and give you the facial balance you need for a healthy and attractive smile. Creating a beautiful smile through orthodontics can improve not only the health of your teeth but also your self-esteem: improvements in personal appearance have been proven to enhance our mental and physical well-being. In this way, orthodontic treatment can benefit your social and career success, as well as improve your attitude towards life.
