Orthodontics is the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of malocclusions. Malocclusion is the dental term for teeth the don’t fit together the way they should. This can affect the appearance of the face, jaw and teeth. Recent years have shown us growth by leaps and bounds in the dental industry as more knowledge of fluoride treatment is spread and people understand the need for preventative maintenance. With this growth we are seeing fewer missing teeth and damage to the facial structure because of the unoccupied space. But unfortunately, most malocclusion are inherited, although some can be created because of losing a baby tooth too early, or thumb sucking during the development of adult teeth. Even with the best dental habits adhered to, you may be genetically predisposed to malocclusions.
