Orthodontics is a specialty of dentistry that is concerned with the study and treatment of malocclusions (improper bites), which may be a result of tooth irregularity, disproportionate jaw relationships, or both. The word comes from the Greek words ortho meaning straight and odons meaning tooth.
Orthodontic treatment can focus on dental displacement only, or can deal with the control and modification of facial growth. In the latter case it is better defined as "dentofacial orthopedics".
Orthodontic treatment can be carried out for purely aesthetic reasons—improving the general appearance of patients' teeth and face for cosmetic reasons—but treatment is often prescribed for practical reasons, providing the patient with a functionally improved bite (occlusion).

Making your experience at Orthosmile like no other orthodontic practice in the area. Many people have teeth that are crowded or crooked, some people have upper teeth that stick out and look unsightly. Orthodontic treatment can be used to straighten these teeth and improve appearance. Orthodontic treatment can also be used to correct teeth that meet in an abnormal manner or don’t meet at all, missing teeth, spacing, extra teeth, unerupted and impacted teeth, protrusion or retrusion of jaws and facial imbalance. There is no age limit for braces. Many people did not get braces when they were young or they did not wear their retainers until they stopped growing.
Now they are unhappy with their smile so they get braces too. Most adults get orthodontic treatment because they realise that taking care of your smile is part of taking care of yourself.
