Orthodontics focuses on the treatment and diagnosis of the misalignments of teeth and irregularities of the jaw by using braces, clear aligner devices, and any other appliances.
Not only for visual enhancement, but the field of orthodontics also works to improve the patient’s oral health for their entire lifetime, and it can help with speech issues. With a properly aligned bite, it makes it easier to smile, eat and speak!
Orthodontic treatment with the use of braces will usually take anywhere from six to thirty months, and it all depends on age, treatment method used, and severity of alignment issues.
The most common problems seen for fixing with braces are the underbites, spacing issues, overcrowding, and overbites.
Many orthodontic problems, often start from a genetic factor but can also be made worse by environmental factors like thumb or finger sucking, but it must be diagnosed before the treatment ever begins.
