ORTHODONTICS & DENTO-FACIAL ORTHOPEDICS: (4th Year – CLINICAL SCIENCE)
Orthodontics, formerly orthodontia is the specialty of dentistry that is concerned with the study and treatment of malocclusions, 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. In the latter case it is better defined as "dentofacial orthopaedics". Students are kept abreast of the latest innovations, research findings, clinical applications and clinical methods.
