Orthodontics

Associated Veterinary Specialists Dentistry veterinarians provide the highest level of Orthodontics veterinary services in the St. Louis area

Orthodontics, formerly orthodontia (from Greek orthos "straight or proper or perfect"; and odous "tooth") is the first specialty of dentistry that is concerned with the study and treatment of malocclusions (improper bites), which may be a result of tooth irregularity, disproportionate jaw relationships, or both. Orthodontic treatment can focus on dental displacement only, or can deal with the control and modification of facial growth.
Various devices such as braces are employed in veterinary patients to improve oral function.
