Orthodontics is a speciality of dentistry that focuses on repositioning misaligned teeth and jaws. Crooked teeth which do not fit together properly are more difficult to clean and are more likely to be lost early due to tooth decay and periodontal disease and put additional strain on the chewing muscles, which can cause migraines, TMJ syndrome, and neck, shoulder, and back pain. Crooked or misaligned teeth can also detract from a person's overall appearance.
Orthodontic therapy has several advantages, including a healthier mouth, a more attractive appearance, and teeth more likely to endure a lifetime.
Many various types of permanent and removable appliances help reposition teeth, retrain muscles, and influence jaw growth. These gadgets function by gently pressing the teeth and jaws together. Which orthodontic approach is most likely to be beneficial depends on the severity of your condition.
