What is Orthodontics?
Orthodontics is a special branch of dentistry that deals with preventing and correcting the irregularities of the jaws and teeth. 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.
Common Causes for Orthodontics
Our orthodontist says that problems with your teeth can either be inherited through your genes or be caused by external factors like:
Gum or tooth decay
Trauma or accidents
Premature loss of the baby teeth
Irregularly positioned teeth (or ectopic teeth)
