If your child has crooked teeth or a misaligned jaw, it may be time to pay a visit to an orthodontist.

An orthodontist specializes in perfecting smiles using orthodontic appliances, such as:
  • bands
  • brackets
  • wires
  • headgear
  • rubber bands
  • retainers

WebMD takes a look at common forms of orthodontics and gives you the facts you need to make an informed decision about orthodontic treatment.
