Orthodontics is one component of an overall dental plan. Although some individuals do not need this specialty, those who have crooked, protruding or misaligned teeth, improper bite, grinding or clenching and a variety of other problems may be candidates for orthodontic procedures. Good orthodontic care can help teeth last an entire lifetime.
Orthodontics are not only for children and teenagers. Adults can also benefit from the same corrections thanks to recent improvements in the field. Good orthodontic care can affect overall body health. Conditions that could be affected or reduced by orthodontic care include diabetes and heart disease
