Orthodontics is not only fixing braces to patient teeth. We can classify orthodontics to big 5 types of interventions firstly 1-preventive orthodontics which aims to predict the problem and trying to prevent it before it becomes more complicated for example space maintainers which are used to keep spaces of extracted teeth for erupting ones or for aprosthesis. 2-interciptive orthodontics which aims to interrupting orthodontic problem and preventing it?s complexity for example correction of skeletal calss II with mandibular retrognathism with amyofunctional appliance as twin block or correcting skeletal class III in a growing patient with maxillary retrusion with face mask also correcting of a developing open bite with tongue gaurd appliance which aim to retain soft tissue balance and establishing normal over jet normal over bite. Also utilizing of leeway spaces in decreasing the need for fixed appliance in the future. 3- Corrective which means management of malocclusion already after it became complicated? 4- Camouflage treatment by extracting teeth and trying to improve dental and soft tissue relation with dento alveolar movements for example extracting upper first premolars to retract upper anteriors and upper lip in skeletal class II cases finally is Orthognathic surgery in which a combination of orthodontics and surgery are performed to correct skeletal base malrelation. Finally I want to say that you can treat or at least decrease complexity of malocclusion by different means rather than fixing brackets on teeth.
