Cosmetic orthodontics is a branch of dentistry which deals with the correction of misaligned teeth for cosmetic (aesthetic) reasons. This usually involves the wearing of a brace to help move the malpositioned teeth back into position.
Types of mal positioned teeth
If you loath smiling and always try to hide your teeth from others then maybe Orthodontic treatment can help you. It doesn’t matter how old you are, it’s never too late to start.
Traditional orthodontic braces are a standard form of treatment for misaligned teeth and possibly to correct bite issues too. A brace may be worn to correct an irregularity caused by tempromandibular joint (TMJ) in which there is a problem with the movement of the jaw leading to difficulties in biting or chewing.
These braces are worn for medical reasons but they will correct cosmetic problems such as improving a crooked smile. This can have an effect on a person’s confidence and self esteem and their overall quality of life.
Having correctly aligned teeth is one on the most important factors in an attractive smile.
