Straight White Teeth
The word orthodontics has its roots in a Greek verb meaning ‘to straighten teeth,’ and today means a branch of dentistry ensuring the correct positioning of teeth rather than their maintenance.
Orthodontics is the use of devices such as braces to solve dental problems such as overcrowding, poorly spaced teeth, cross bites and overbites. Although mainly used to treat children and adolescents, it can also be beneficial for adults.
