Orthodontics is the speciality of dentistry concerned with the prevention, interception and correction of problems relating to the growth and development of the teeth and jaws. Ortho means straight, and dontics means teeth. An orthodontist is a registered specialist dentist, who has initially completed a degree in Dentistry, followed by a post graduate (Master's) degree in the field of Orthodontics. The nature of each person's problem is unique no two people are the same. Stan Laurel has a long narrow face; Oliver Hardy has a broad, round face. They would also have different shaped dental arches, and different sized teeth. Our facial appearance and teeth are initially inherited, but malocclusions (or crooked teeth) are the result of many factors, both inherited and local (such as thumb sucking, irregular tongue posture, and constricted airways). Each person's response to orthodontic treatment is different because of the many factors with which we are dealing, in particular, growth, which is genetically pre determined. Often two or more phases of treatment may be required during the growing years, and even after orthodontic treatment teeth continually change throughout life. Functional appliances may be used to influence growth and the shape of the face and jaws, while removable appliances ("plates") and braces may be used at any age to reposition and align the individual teeth. Plastic aligners (sometimes called "invisible braces") can be used for correction of some types of problems. As teeth erupt, some may become crooked or overlap, while others may be rotated or twisted. Some people's mouths are too small, or they have excessively wide teeth, which results in crooked teeth. In some situations a person's upper jaw and lower jaw do not correspond in size, for example if the lower jaw is too small, the upper jaw juts forward, resulting in a condition called an overjet ("bucky teeth"); when the opposite happens and the lower jaw is longer than the upper jaw, an underbite develops (like a bulldog's bite). If the jaws are not the same width there is a crossbite.
