A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Orthodontist Collection - Orthodontics: dental specialty involved with correcting tooth alignment with special wires, brackets, and bands. Hippocrates wrote of attempts to straighten teeth around 400 B.C. and it appears humankind has tried to straighten teeth for thousands of years. Archaeolo-gists have uncovered mummies with crude metal bands wrapped around teeth, and it is felt that cat-gut was used as we now use orthodontic wire. NASA developed heat-activated nickel-titanium alloy wires. "At room temperature, heat-activated nickel-titanium wires are very flexible. They're very light, and as they warm to body temperature they become active and gradually move the teeth in the anticipated direction. The correct alignment of teeth and jaws can improve the ability to chew food and correct problems arising from injuries to the teeth. Children can be helped as early as 7 and the number of adults using orthodontics is increasing rapidly. It is a known fact that as orthodontics produces a healthy, beautiful smile, the person's self-esteem gets a boost also.
