If you are considering braces, you’ve probably heard of the term orthodontics. But, do you really know what orthodontics means or how it can help improve your health and self-esteem? According to the medical news website Medical News Today, orthodontics is defined as “a branch of dentistry that specializes in treating patients with improper positioning of teeth when the mouth is closed (malocclusion), which results in an improper bite.”
Orthodontic treatment is provided by an oral health care professional known as an orthodontist, who is well trained in this field. The best orthodontists, like Dr. Tanya Vaysman of Upper Eastside Orthodontists, have finished two to three years of additional training after dental school.
The word orthodontics comes from the Greek word “orthos” meaning “straight, perfect or proper,” and “dontos” which means “teeth.” And if you visit Upper Eastside Orthodontists, award-winning Dr. Vaysman and her experienced staff will help you correct issues with your teeth so you can achieve the smile that you’ve always dreamed of.
