Orthodontics is a dentistry specialty concerned with the improper bites, which may be the result of tooth irregularity or disproportionate jaw relationships. Orthodontic treatment focuses on dental displacement as well as other techniques.

What is a orthodontist?

Orthodontists are dentists who practice orthodontics. An orthodontist can treat improper bites and crooked teeth. To correct these issues with patients teeth, orthodontists usually use braces and retainers to set the patient’s teeth. However, invisible braces such as Invisalign are becoming more frequently used in orthodontics.

If you have an improper bite or crooked teeth that you are interested in fixing, contact our Richmond BC dental office today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Kaltio, General Dentist.


The most common orthodontic treatment for improper bites or crooked teeth involves the use of dental braces designed to align and straighten a patient’s teeth. They are used to correct underbites, overbites, cross bites, open bites, deep bites, crooked teeth, and malocclusions. While traditional braces are made of metal wire, clear braces are becoming a popular alternative, especially for adult patients.
