Orthodontics is a special discipline of dentistry, which aligns the teeth and jaws to improve one's smile and oral health. Orthodontic treatment can be carried out for purely aesthetic reasons with regards to improving the general appearance of patients' teeth and reconstructing the entire face rather than focusing exclusively on teeth. A dentist usually recommends braces to improve one’s facial appearance.
Through orthodontic treatment, problems like crooked or crowded teeth, bites, incorrect jaw position and disorders of the jaw joints are corrected.
Orthodontic treatment can be done at any age. The ideal time for placement of braces is between 10 and 14 years of age. The most popular types of braces are brackets made of metal or ceramic. Ceramic braces that are bonded to teeth are far less noticeable and aesthetically pleasing.
