Orthodontics is all about moving teeth and making sure your jaw is working correctly. You may have orthodontic treatment for two reasons:
If you have irregular teeth due to crowding, spacing, missing or impacted teeth, or If your upper and lower teeth do not meet properly. Patients can also benefit from orthodontics alongside other dental treatment such as gum disease therapy, or to help with crown and bridgework or implants.
Orthodontic treatment can be achieved with a variety of braces that can be broadly divided into fixed and removable appliances.
