Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry concerned with the growth and development of the face, the jaws, the bite and the teeth, as well as the function and aesthetics of the teeth and smile. Proper and timely diagnosis and management of orthodontic issues can improve: growth and development of the face and jaws; speech, swallow and snoring; the bite and function of the teeth and jaws; and smile aesthetics. Orthodontic treatment has been shown to give patients a new confidence in their smile (1), which in turn enhances happiness (2), job prospects (3), dating prospects (4) and longevity (6).
