What is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a specialized field in dentistry concerned with the study and treatment of improper bite. Improper bites, termed malocclusion, may be due to an irregularity that causes the tooth to be misaligned. These abnormalities may have been caused by certain circumstances that took place during a child’s growing years or may have been inherited.

Malocclusion may be due to:

  • Crowded teeth growth
  • Disproportionate jaw structure
  • Trauma
  • Thumb-sucking
  • Loss of baby teeth, among others
