Crooked teeth are quite a common problem. Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that involves the diagnosis and treatment of both tooth and jaw alignment problems.

Treatment can be as simple as fitting a corrective expander or plate, to fitting full arch fixed appliances (braces) to more involved procedures involving corrective jaw surgery. Modern fixed appliances are quite small and orthodontic brackets are now available in tooth colour.

Modern orthodontic treatment wires are highly flexible and can speed up treatment time. Straight teeth enhances self confidence and results in a winning smile. Straight teeth are easier to keep clean. More pronounced orthodontic problems can lead to chewing problems, gum damage and abnormal tooth wear.
