What Is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics involves the correction of misaligned teeth and jaws. The term originates from the Greek words "ortho," meaning "straight" or "correct," and "odont," meaning "tooth." An orthodontist's role goes beyond just straightening teeth; it encompasses ensuring proper alignment of teeth for a balanced bite. This alignment, known as a person's "bite," is crucial not only for aesthetics but also for efficient chewing function and the overall health of the TMJ (jaw joint). Dr. Fields ensures that your treatment achieves both a beautiful smile and optimal functionality.
