A few people have naturally straight teeth that fit together perfectly.
For everyone else, there is orthodontic care.
Orthodontia is the branch of dentistry that deals with
abnormalities of the teeth and face.
Orthodontic care involves the
use of devices, such as braces, to:
- Straighten teeth
- Correct problems with bite
- Close gaps between teeth
- Align lips and teeth properly
Most people who receive orthodontic care are children and teens, but adults get braces, too. In young
children, orthodontic treatment may guide proper jaw growth. This can help
permanent teeth to come in properly. Straight permanent teeth can help prevent
future tooth problems.
