ORTHODONTICS is the process of straightening teeth with the help of an appliance ( wires etc). Any child or adult might require orthodontic treatment who has teeth that are:
Crooked, Alignment and Spacing, Protruding, Irregular With gaps in between the wrong bite.
An orthodontic treatment involves putting a wire/brackets on your teeth and regular visits (once a month mostly) for tightening/changing the wire. Each sitting takes only 10-15 minutes.
