Orthodontics is a specialised branch of cosmetic dentistry that corrects crooked or misaligned teeth or gaps between them. Orthodontics usually requires the wearing of a brace to gradually move the teeth into the proper position.
How Does Treatment Work?
There are many different types of braces that can be used to help move teeth, retrain facial muscles and correct jaw growth .These appliances can be fixed or removable. The exact choice of brace will depend on the issues that require correction.
Can Adults Have Orthodontics?
