What is an Orthodontic Treatment?
|"Silver" Braces||Tooth Coloured Braces||"Invisible" Braces|
Orthodontics is a specialised branch of dentistry concerned with the aesthetics and function of the teeth, jaws and face. This involves a variety of fixed or removable braces to gently guide the teeth into the most desirable position.
