Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that involves improving the appearance, position and function of crooked teeth and jaws that are not positioned properly. Teeth that do not fit together correctly are harder to keep clean and are at risk of being chipped or lost early due to tooth decay and periodontal disease. They can also cause extra stress on the chewing muscles that can lead to headaches, TMJ syndrome and neck, shoulder and back pain.
Orthodontic treatment is varied depending on the specific needs of the patient. There are many different devices that are used to help straighten the teeth, retrain muscles and affect the growth of the jaws. These devices, usually in the form of dental braces, work by placing gentle pressure on the teeth and jaws. The severity of the problem will determine which orthodontic approach is likely to be the most effective.
Teeth straightening has become exceptionally popular throughout the last decade as more and more people of all ages turn to orthodontic treatments. Over the years the quality of orthodontic treatment has increased dramatically and there are now plenty of discreet options when it comes to choosing dental braces that work for you.
