Orthodontics is a specialty of dentistry that deals with deviations of the teeth and the jaws which can cause functional and aesthetic problems in the craniofacial area. An orthodontist is a dentist who has undergone at least three years of extra training in Orthodontics and deals only with problems of such matter. Besides a beautiful smile, an orthodontist can help creating a functionally perfect, aesthetic and harmonious balance between the hard (teeth, jaws) and soft (lips, chin) tissues of the face.
