What is Orthodontics?
Orthodontics is the straightening of teeth to improve the appearance of the smile and the face or to correct disordered bites. It is a great way to rectify crowded or misaligned teeth. Aside from cosmetic benefits, straight teeth are also easier to clean which improves gum health and can prevent dental disease.Modern braces can be fixed or removable.
It is growing in popularity, especially amongst adults, because modern aesthetic braces can be clear or tooth coloured, thus allowing you to get the smile you want without making it obvious.
