Technically, orthodontics are a branch of dentistry. An orthodontist treats problems with the teeth and jaws, which are often related to the overall function of the face. The area of orthodontics that most people are familiar with is probably the use of braces. Traditional metal braces have long been used to correct crooked or crowded teeth. However, there are other lesser-known orthodontic devices. They include night guards for preventing grinding and temporary anchorage devices (TADs) which help tooth control. There are also rubber bands which are an alternative to braces.
Many conditions of the jaw are also treated through orthodontics. An orthodontist can provide treatment for the jaw when the joint or supporting muscles are involved. Common conditions usually stem from a misalignment of the jaw or weakened muscles. Other conditions may be a result of deformity or injury. An orthodontic dentist will use advanced techniques and technologies to diagnose problems that affect the jaw, muscles and surrounding tissues.
