What Is Orthodontic Treatment?

Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry which focuses on the treatment and correction of the teeth and jaws that are positioned improperly, aiming at the ideal aesthetics and function, while correcting the quality of the individual’s life. Patients gain notable changes in soft tissues, profile, smile and chewing functions.

Orthodontic treatment is the art of treating the mal-positioning and disfiguration of teeth and the jaws. Simply, it is aligning crooked teeth and correcting mal-positioned jaws by means of braces or other types of appliances.

Orthodontic disorders develop due to genetic and environmental factors. Abnormalities of teeth and jaws in parents may be seen in their children, too. They may also develop in children due to oral habits including long-term bottle feeding or pacifier use; thumb or finger sucking, tongue thrusting, nail-biting; pen or pencil chewing, and open-mouth breathing. Starting the treatment at an earlier stage will allow to eliminate jaw dysfunctions or bad habits. While it is possible to eliminate jaw disorders only during the growth and development period, dental disorders can be eliminated at any age.
