What is Orthodontics?
Orthodontics is an area of dentistry that diagnoses and corrects teeth and jaw alignment problems. Orthodontics specializes in treating patients with improper positioning of teeth when the mouth is closed (malocclusion), which results in an improper bite. Orthodontics also includes treating and controlling various aspects of facial growth (dento-facial orthopaedics) and the shape and development of the jaw.
What will happen if I don’t have straight teeth? How is orthodontic treatment done?
When teeth don’t line up properly it can cause problems such as uneven wear on teeth and an increased risk of tooth decay and gum disease. The corrections are done with braces which can be Metal, Clear (Teeth colour), invisible which can be lingual fixed or Clear/Invisible trays. In addition to braces‚ orthodontists sometimes use special appliances (called functional appliances) to direct the growth of the jaw in young children.
What is the ideal age for orthodontic treatment?
Usually, problems can be detected by eight or nine years of age. Most orthodontic treatment is done after all the permanent teeth are through, at around 11 to 13 years. Some treatment can be started earlier, at about age eight or nine. With the arrival of Invisible braces even adults can be treated.

With only few sets of instruments the sterilization process suffers between the patients.
