What Is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that corrects crooked teeth and other jaw and alignment problems. Orthodontics makes use of personalised orthodontic equipment worn in the mouth for a period of time to shift and correct teeth into the ideal position.

An orthodontic evaluation is recommended for children as young as 7 years old. This evaluation will assess the child’s teeth alignment, jaw growth, and possible bite defects. From the results, your dentist will create an orthodontic plan consisting of the treatments your child needs and the duration the orthodontic equipment will stay in the mouth.
