Welcome to the website of the South African Society of Orthodontists.
This site contains information about orthodontics for the general public, dental personnel and members of the SASO.
Orthodontics is the dental science and art of creating beautiful confident smiles by enhancing facial and dental harmony utilizing constantly researched, extremely small, relatively comfortable attachments onto the teeth.
Modern societies have brought people closer and closer to each other. We see individuals face to face in all walks of life. Competition and a strong desire for social acceptance focuses attention onto our face, jaws and teeth.
