Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth. A single implant can be used to replace a single missing tooth or a number of implants can be used to replace all missing teeth or simply help hold a lose denture in place. Implant placement is carried out under local anaesthetic, like a filling.
Orthodontics is the specialty of dentistry concerned with improving the position of the teeth and jaws to give the optimum smile and bite. This is done with either fixed or removable braces. The ideal time to see an orthodontist is when almost all of the adult teeth have erupted. However there is no age limit for orthodontics and many adults are now choosing to improve their smiles with braces.
