What is orthodontics?
Orthodontics is the specialist branch of dentistry concerned with the growth and development of the teeth and jaws. Malocclusion (or 'bad bite') is the term given to irregularities of the teeth and jaws. Orthodontic treatment aims to correct malocclusion by making the best of your teeth and improving the harmony of your mouth and jaws. Once your bite has been improved, you can eat more comfortably and care for your teeth and gums more easily.
