Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry dealing with

treatments. Orthodontic treatment usually includes the use of some apparatus
such as brackets. The use of such corrective apparatus involves the following steps:
Occlusion of the toot gap

Fix crooked teeth
Aligning the teeth and lips
There are 2 types of orthodontic treatment:
Removable orthodontic treatment
Unlike traditional braces, removable orthodontic
appliances are used to keep teeth in their corrected positions and to induce
growth of the jaws in order to impact changes in facial structure. Removable
appliances are often utilized before and in conjunction with fixed appliances.
They are sets of wires and brackets glued to the teeth.
They are commonly known as braces. They act as handles that move your teeth
under the control of orthodontic wires. The wires are tightened and adjusted,
gradually applying enough pressure to move the teeth (bone remodeling).
An orthodontic dental treatment can be of tremendous benefit to patients suffering from difficulty
chewing or biting, breathing through the mouth, and protruding teeth.

Improved ability to clean one’s teeth
Reduction in mouth-breathing
Improved aesthetic facial shape and profile
Improved self-esteem and confidence
