What is Orthodontics?
Introduction to Orthodontics
Orthodontics is a dentistry term used to explain specialised treatment of alignment in teeth and jaws. Known technically as malocclusion, put simply, means bad bite. The solutions to these problems involve the use of braces (corrective appliances).
The good news is that for everyone who experiences dental difficulty, there is a solution.
It is important to understand that orthodontics treatment and aftercare can be lengthy and sometimes costly as it involves solving a mix of complex problems that span across Mild, Moderate and Complex difficulties.
