Definition(s):

  • (n) the branch of dentistry dealing with the prevention or correction of irregularities of the teeth

Usage(s):

  1. Can't have that; no one ever got any aluminum siding sold or orthodontia bills paid while dangling from a bungee cord.
  2. Until the law changes, plan your FSA for costs you are sure to incur, such as deductibles and scheduled orthodontia for the kids.
  3. Young drill teams strutted: the dancers had the tendony legs of Appaloosas--and orthodontia that cost the earth.
