What is orthodontics, and what problems does it solve?

Orthodontics is a branch of dental medicine that deals with straightening teeth and aligning the jaw. The goal of orthodontics isn’t merely cosmetic — it aims to solve painful positioning problems and irregularities of the mastication (chewing) system. Orthodontics treatment is no longer the luxury it once was. Today, it’s a widely accessible necessity that shouldn’t be overlooked.

Who needs orthodontic treatment?

The majority of orthodontic patients are adolescents with crooked or misaligned teeth. That said, orthodontics is for all patients who are unsatisfied with their smiles or the health of their teeth. Candidates for fixed orthodontics are people over the age of 13, while candidates for mobile orthodontics can be younger than 13.
