Orthodontics Dentistry

Orthodontics is a specialized branch of dentistry focused on diagnosing, preventing, and treating dental and facial irregularities. It primarily deals with correcting misaligned teeth and jaws to improve oral health, function, and aesthetics. Orthodontists use various techniques and appliances, such as braces, aligners, and retainers, to straighten teeth, correct bite issues, and enhance overall facial harmony.

The goals of orthodontic treatment include:

  • Alignment: Bringing teeth into proper alignment to improve appearance and function.

  • Bite Correction: Correcting bite problems, such as overbites, underbites, crossbites, and open bites, to ensure proper chewing and speech.

  • Prevention: Preventing or minimizing dental problems caused by misaligned teeth, such as tooth decay, gum disease, and TMJ disorders.

  • Facial Balance: Enhancing facial aesthetics by aligning teeth and jaws to create a harmonious smile and profile.

  • Orthopaedic Correction: Addressing skeletal discrepancies in the jaws to improve overall facial structure and function.

  • Functional Improvement: Improving the function of the teeth and jaws for better chewing, speech, and overall oral health.


Orthodontic treatment typically involves a comprehensive assessment, including X-rays, dental impressions, and digital scans, to create personalized treatment plans. Patients may undergo orthodontic treatment during childhood, adolescence, or adulthood, depending on their individual needs and preferences. Overall, orthodontics plays a crucial role in enhancing dental health, restoring proper function, and achieving a confident smile.
