Dentistry that fixes improperly positioned teeth and jaws is considered Orthodontics. If you or someone in your family is suffering from under bite, overbite, overcrowding, cross bite, or TMJ, you need an Orthodontist. The Orthodontist can fit you with an oral appliance that will help retrain your teeth and muscles with gentle, but firm pressure. This includes braces, aligners, expanders, retainers, and headgear. With one of these appliances, you can fix any type of misalignment or injury to get the results you want. Braces are the most common oral appliance that straightens and corrects teeth with brackets and wires. Brackets are bonded to the teeth and wires are laced through the brackets and pulled tight to gradually move teeth where they belong.
