Orthodontics is a specialized field of dentistry that focuses on the alignment and positioning of teeth and jaws. It involves the diagnosis, prevention, and correction of dental irregularities, such as crooked teeth, overcrowding, and misaligned bites. Orthodontic treatment often includes the use of braces, aligners, and other devices to gently move teeth into their optimal positions. By improving the alignment of the teeth and jaws, orthodontics not only enhances the appearance of the smile but also promotes proper oral function and overall oral health. With advancements in orthodontic techniques, patients of all ages can achieve straighter teeth and a confident, healthy smile.
