Orthodontics is a speciality of dentistry that deals with the diagnosis, prevention, and correction of malpositioned teeth and jaws, and misaligned bite patterns.It also focuses on modifying facial growth during growing age of a child, known as dentofacial orthopaedics.

What Is Orthodontics?
Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that addresses the diagnosis, prevention, interception, guidance, and correction of bad bites or dental irregularities, including the use of braces.

Orthodontists are registered dental specialists who have completed an additional three years of full-time University training in orthodontics, facial growth and development, biology and biomechanics (they hold a General Dental Degree + Specialist Orthodontic Degree).

How to decide whom should you get your braces treatment from?

Choose a qualified orthodontist, with an MDS in Orthodontics from a recognized dental institute. This orthodontist receives 3 years special training and passes qualifying examinations to get the MDS degree in Orthodontics.

Choose an Orthodontist who has a well-equipped orthodontic set up: A resident orthodontist who has his own office has developed an infrastructure which is best suitable to treat an orthodontic patient most effectively. He has well-trained staff to assist him and to bring out the best in him. Visiting orthodontists who work at different clinics every day cannot develop an effective treatment delivery system to achieve the best possible results.

Choose an orthodontist with efficient maintenance of patient records: Orthodontists are supposed to maintain plaster models, x-ray and photographic records of all their patients. The orthodontist who takes pains to maintain these records is more likely to be more methodical in the treatment approach. Ask your orthodontist to share with you the treatment results of a few cases treated by him to understand the quality of results delivered.

An orthodontist who keeps himself updated by learning new skills and techniques and attending specialty conferences is always more informed about technological advancements and newer appliances and procedures in the field.

Take references from friends, colleagues, schoolmates etc. Who have undergone braces treatment. Know about the quality of results, duration of treatment and the entire approach of an orthodontist.

Do not choose an orthodontist because his treatment fee is less: A good orthodontist knows his worth. He will use quality materials for your braces treatment to give you the best result. He will work harder on your smile to mould it perfectly with the least discomfort to you in the shortest possible time.
