Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry dealing with the prevention and correction of malocclusions, as well as teeth alignment.
In today’s world a beautiful smile is your business card, an indicator of success and beauty. An orthodontist does more than merely align one’s teeth, he helps prevent problems, which accompany bite abnormalities:

- excessive tooth abrasion;
- inadequate oral hygiene resulting in caries;
