Orthodontics is a specialty field of dentistry that involves the diagnosis, prevention and correction of malpositioned teeth and the jaws. Orthodontics treatment utilizes braces for comprehensive treatment. Metal wires are inserted into brackets, where the wires interact with the brackets to move teeth into desired alignment.

Additional treatment options involve the use of retainers, which allow surrounding bones to reform around newly aligned teeth. Depending on the patient’s situation, retainers are worn anywhere from full-time for a period, a few days to possibly a year.
