Orthodontics are dentists who mastered in determining, treating and preventing malocclusions and other irregularities in the jaw area and face. Orthodontics can treat children, teenagers and adults.
Anyone who is experiencing overcrowding, an overbite or underbite can benefit from orthodontics. A serious malocclusion can lead to several painful dental and physical conditions, such as digestive problems, TMJ, periodontal disease and severe tooth decay.
What can orthodontics do to help?
Orthodontics are trained to use several techniques depending on the situation. No matter how severe the misalignment of the teeth is, fixed dental braces may always help lessen or correct the issue. Orthodontics also use removable appliances, faceguards and palate expanders depending on each specific case.
