Orthodontics

Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that focuses on the correction of misaligned teeth and jaws. This is typically done through the use of braces or clear aligners such as Invisalign or ClearCorrect, which apply pressure to the teeth to gradually shift them into the desired position.

Braces are another common option for orthodontic treatment. They consist of metal or ceramic brackets that are attached to the teeth and connected by a wire. The wire is tightened over time to gradually move the teeth into the desired position.

Popular options for orthodontic treatment are Invisalign and ClearCorrect, which use a series of clear aligners to straighten teeth. These aligners are made from a thin, flexible plastic material and are virtually invisible when worn. They are also removable, making them easier to clean and care for than traditional braces.

Overall, orthodontics helps people achieve healthy and beautiful smiles by correcting misaligned teeth and jaws. With the use of braces, appliances, or aligners, dentists can help patients achieve a straight, symmetrical smile that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing.
