The process of straightening teeth is called Orthodontics. It is a specialized branch of dentistry that deals with the correction of Dental and Facial irregularities by moving improperly placed teeth by means of braces. Sometimes the size and position of the upper and lower Jaws contribute to poorly positioned teeth. Treatment in these cases is directed at correcting these jaw discrepancies. This is called Dent facial Orthopaedics.
Orthodontists are dentists who provide Orthodontic and dent facial Orthopaedic care
