Orthodontics is basically establishing an aesthetically acceptable smile and functional occlusion (bite).
Orthodontics is generally seen as a procedure to obtain an attractive smile, where there exist poorly aligned teeth.
Devices such as orthodontic plates and braces have long been used to achieve the desired outcomes.
Treatment may take a few months to many months.
These services can be provided at a general dentist level but at times require the services of a specialist or orthodontist.
