The orthodontic procedure is provided by a dentist or orthodontist which diagnose and gives proper prevention and treatment for dental problems. Braces and orthodontic treatment help us to straighten out our smile but most importantly; it would result in a healthier oral health. Not correcting a malocclusion would lead to other oral health problems. It would include, tooth decay, tooth loss, gum disease, speech problem, jaw problem and much worst of all bad breath.
