Orthodontics is a dental specialty that primarily deals with the diagnosis, prevention and correction of malpositioned teeth and the jaws. Orthodontists are dentists who align the crooked/crowded/protruding teeth and treat malocclusions or bad bites, hence rectifying the teeth spacing and jaw line.
A misaligned jaw and/or the supporting bone structure can affect the bite and create malocclusion, which may result in difficulty during chewing and speaking. This condition can be treated under the expert guidance of an orthodontist. Besides, orthodontists are those dentists who are experts in getting you the right braces for the right alignment of your teeth so that you can flash that lovely smile.
