Orthodontics means “straight teeth” in Latin. In general terms, it is referred to as “orthodontics and maxillofacial orthopaedics” in the world. The reason for this is that it is a branch of science that examines not only teeth but also teeth and maxillofacial relationships together. In order to become an orthodontist, it is necessary to receive a 4-year orthodontic education after completing a 5-year dental school. The physician who completes this training process deserves the title of “orthodontist”.

Generally, people feel the need to consult an orthodontist when they notice irregularities and crowding in their or their children’s teeth or when they are not satisfied with their appearance. However, many of these disorders can be prevented as a result of regular checks starting at an early age. Thanks to early interventions and adequate oral dental health education in conscious societies, tooth loss and dental crowding in later ages have decreased significantly. In our country, an intensive effort is still being made to raise this awareness.

The ability of our teeth and jaws to function with each other in the correct positions is a very important factor affecting all our respiratory and chewing functions. This is where orthodontics comes into play and helps us to fulfil these functions at an optimum level. Orthodontists work hard to ensure that our teeth and jaws function correctly during treatment. Dozens of records taken before the treatment (measurements, photographs, jaw and facial x-rays and even computerised tomographs when necessary) are analysed very meticulously in order to create a treatment plan and the correct treatment plan is tried to be created. The correct treatment plan constitutes half of the treatment; therefore, properly working orthodontists attach great importance to this phase. The necessary treatment is applied using more cleverly planned mechanics. The treatment period lasts between 1 year and 4 years depending on the severity of the case. Usually the treatment period is 2 years.

The main devices used in orthodontics are brackets and wires. In addition, many more intraoral and extraoral devices are used. There are many types of brackets that are basically used and glued on each tooth. These differences are divided into two as mechanical and aesthetic. The reason for the differences in mechanical meaning is the following; Since the first application of orthodontics, many treatment techniques and philosophies have emerged. As a result, there are dozens of brackets with different mechanical properties on the market. In general, each orthodontist has one or more techniques and chooses the brackets he uses in line with his system. In terms of aesthetics, there are tooth-coloured and gold-coloured brackets that are mostly preferred by adults. These also differ according to the material they are made of and the technical features they contain.
