Orthodontics is a specialty within Dental Medicine and deals with the diagnosis and treatment of dental positioning using braces as a means to correct tooth and jaw alignment.
Awkwardly positioned teeth make for poor and difficult oral hygiene potentially resulting in early tooth loss due to periodontal illness. These types of misalignments provoke additional stress on chewing muscles which in turn could lead to headaches, ATM syndrome (ear-jaw articulation) and discomfort in the regions of the neck, shoulders and back.
Crooked teeth also affect one’s appearance and self-esteem. Orthodontic treatment results in a healthy mouth, pleasant physical appearance, better hygiene and chewing capacity.
