In short, orthodontics is a branch of dental medicine that studies and correct tooth and jaw abnormalities. In other words, it is the science or field dealing with tooth strengthening, bite (occlusal) adjustment, but also with the repositioning of the two jaws. It has been found that crooked teeth are more difficult to care for and tooth loss may occur much sooner. They also place greater pressure on the masticating muscles and they can cause headaches or even neck pain.
Fortunately, due to today’s techniques, teeth can be strengthened at any age. Clear aligners are actually available for those who resent the thought of visible braces. The duration of such a treatment varies a lot, depending on the complexity of the problems. They generally range between 18 and 24 months. The optimum age for a first visit to the orthodontist is 7, so that a possible aligner treatment may be initiated as early as possible.
