Orthodontic treatment is a way of straightening or moving teeth to correct malocclusions in patients. An ideal occlusion is one where all the teeth meet with the lower lingual cusp occluding with the fissure of the upper teeth. When this does not happen, there is what we call a malocclusion. There are classifications for malocclusions and other factors that apply for Orthodontic Treatments. If you have your concerns, ask your Dentist about his or her infection control techniques so that you can rest at ease while being treated.
