Etiology- the term refers to the causes of diseases.

Etiology in medicine refers to the causes of diseases or pathologies.

I came across this word when I was doing some research on ‘Orthodontics’ and the causes for its treatment.

Though several people know that one of the most common situations leading to orthodontic treatment is crowding of the teeth, dentists believe that it is also possible that Homo sapiens have evolved smaller jaws without a reduction in the number of teeth they will house happening at the same time.

So it is obvious that Orthodontics is not always for aesthetic purposes; braces may be prescribed in cases of so-called "overbite" to help prevent teeth being knocked out in an accident, for example, hockey or skating.

One of the foremost and dependable dental clinics is the Hayfield Dental Care that has been serving the residents of Alexandria since 1987.

With an enviable record of zero complaints from its 23,000 patients that were treated so far, the dentists at Hayfield Dental Care have perfect records with the Virginia Board of Dentistry.

Only the most advanced materials and equipment are used at Hayfield to provide patients with outstanding care.
