I am a third-generation orthodontist. Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that aims primarily to enhance appearance affecting psychosocial fitness and in a small subset of cases improve physical oral health as it is affected by congenital or acquired pathology. Orthodontic practice much like cosmetology exists to satisfy patients’ desire to become better than normal to whatever degree they wish.
