What is Orthodontics?
Orthodontics is an area of dentistry specializing in straightening crooked teeth, correcting misaligned jaw structure, and other oral issues that affect the appearance of the smile. Orthodontists adjust under and overbites, move teeth into their correct positions, and give their patients a smile of a lifetime. While orthodontics is most commonly associated with teens and children; adults can also benefit from seeking orthodontic treatments.
The American Association of Orthodontics recommends children begin seeing an orthodontist at the age of seven. Interceptive orthodontics is used specifically for children to identify and correct any issues that may affect the way their mouths grow and develop. It also helps guide permanent teeth as they erupt and come into place.
