What is Orthodontics and why do I need it?

Orthodontic procedures are done to correct the position of the jaws to make them fit correctly and make it easier to clean them. Orthodontic procedures ensure that the jaw is in perfect shape and the teeth fit in perfectly on one another to give perfect biting and chewing capabilities.
