Orthodontics is a specialist expert branch within dentistry that addresses long-standing problems and gives you straighter teeth. As a field, orthodontics looks beyond the basics of dental health to the whole of your smile, which is why a specialist orthodontist can make such a big difference to your overall sense of well-being and self-confidence.
A specialist orthodontist does more than provide braces. He or she looks at the whole of your smile, correcting tooth irregularities and improper bites, and is an expert in accurately fitting braces to straighten teeth. Orthodontists can also address long-standing, often painful conditions caused by misaligned teeth including jaw problems, discomfort when eating, and even headaches, neck ache and shoulder tension.
