What Is Orthodontics?
Orthodontics is the treatment of teeth and jaws that are positioned incorrectly. The word comes from Greek “ortho” meaning “straight” or “correct,” and “odont” meaning “tooth.” The orthodontist’s job is not just to straighten teeth, but also to make sure that the teeth come together properly. This is known as a person’s “bite.” Having a correctly aligned bite is very important, not only for aesthetics but also for proper chewing function and TMJ (jaw joint) health. Dr. Fields ensures that your treatment results in both a beautiful smile and optimum function.
