Orthodontia also known as orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics, was the first specialty created in the field of dentistry. The specialty deals primarily with the diagnosis, prevention and correction of malpositioned teeth and the jaws. It is the specialty of dentistry that is concerned with the treatment of improper bites and crooked teeth.
Orthodontic treatment can help fix the patient's teeth and set them in the right place. Orthodontists usually use braces and clear aligners to set the patient's teeth.
