What is orthodontics?
The word orthodontics comes from the Greek orthos, meaning “straight, perfect or proper”, and dontos, which means “teeth”.

Orthodontics specializes in treating patients with improper positioning of teeth when the mouth is closed (malocclusion), which results in an improper bite. In addition, orthodontics includes treating and controlling various aspects of facial growth and the shape and development of the jaw.

Do I need Orthodontic treatment?
Only your professional orthodontist can determine whether and how you can benefit from orthodontics, after a thorough examination.
