If you are not happy with the way your smile looks due to misaligned or gapped teeth, orthodontic treatment is a good option to consider.Orthodontics is the dental practice of straightening and realigning teeth for maximum performance and aesthetics.

Braces are often used to correct malocclusions such as underbites, overbites, cross bites and open bites, or crooked teeth and various other flaws of teeth and jaws, whether cosmetic or structural. Orthodontic Braces are often used in conjunction with other orthodontic appliances to widen the palate or jaws, create spaces between teeth, or otherwise shape the teeth and jaws.

Teeth move through the use of force. The force applied by the arch wire pushes the tooth in a particular direction and a stress is created within the periodontal ligament. The modification of the periodontal blood supply determines a biological response which leads to bone remodeling, where bone is created on one side by osteoblast cells and restored on the other side by osteoclasts.
