Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that corrects improperly positioned teeth and jaws . It focuses on treating misaligned teeth, crooked teeth, gaps, overbite or underbite and jaw misalignment issues. It is therefore described as the practice of straightening misaligned teeth.
Services offered by Orthodontics :
Overcrowded and misaligned teeth: when there are too many teeth for the dental ridge to accommodate
Spacing: Gaps between the teeth as a result of missing teeth
Overbite: It refers to a vertical misalignment between the upper and lower front teeth.
Underbite: It is a dental condition when lower teeth extend outward farther than the upper front teeth.
Crossbite - This occurs when the teeth ends do not meet.
