Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry which specialises in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of problems in the alignment of teeth and jaws. Nearly one million people in the UK started having orthodontics last year and more adults than ever before are having treatment. Orthodontic treatment involves the use of corrective appliances (such as fixed braces, removable appliances and functional appliances) to bring the teeth and jaws into proper alignment.
