Orthodontics is a speciality of dentistry that deals with the diagnosis, prevention, management and correction of mal-positioned teeth and jaws (malocclusion), as well as misaligned bite patterns to improve one’s oral and healthy appearance.   

Orthodontics is a specialized branch of dentistry. The name comes from two Greek words: 

  • Orthos, meaning straight or proper
  • Odons, meaning teeth

So, the meaning is clear- ‘straight teeth’ 

Any deviation from the norm that affects teeth alignment and the bite relationship is called a malocclusion. Most malocclusions are genetic-they are inherited (e.g. missing teeth or a protruding mandible). Other malocclusions can be caused by the patient, for e.g. digit sucking, or by external factors such as trauma. 

Orthodontic treatment can correct malocclusion by restoring the teeth to their normal position and occlusal relationship. 

So, orthodontists set out to 

  • Straighten teeth
  • Improve the bite
  • Improve the function
  • Improve oral hygiene (making teeth easier to clean)
  • Improve the self-esteem of the patient
