Orthodontists are highly trained dentists who specialize in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of dental and facial irregularities. Such misalignment of the teeth and jaws is referred to as “malocclusion,” or “bad bite.” The most common orthodontic problems are protruding upper teeth, overbite, open bite, and irregular spacing. These problems can be inherited or acquired, and it is best when they are detected early. To correct malocclusion, orthodontists often treat patients through the use of braces and by designing corrective appliances. The goal of these treatments is to realign the teeth and jaws, restore facial balance, and prevent further health problems. 
Fortunately, dental braces have come a long way – today's dental braces look, feel and function better than ever. Along with traditional metal braces, there are now a variety of dental braces to fit every need and budget. Clear dental braces use an innovative sliding technology instead of wires and have small, clear brackets that are virtually invisible. Invisible dental braces don't use brackets at all; they include a customized set of clear plastic aligners that can be removed while eating, drinking, brushing and flossing. If a beautiful, straight smile is what you're after, you can't go wrong with dental braces – no matter what your age!
