According to Organic Chemistry, "Ortho", is applied to differentiate the three kinds of isomer of disubstitued benzenes, it specifies that the substituents are at locants 1 and 2.

It is usually written in italic form, and is regularly abbreviated as O in complex names. Like the complex name ortho- xylene is equal to o-xylene. Orthodontics is also a specialty of dentistry which is related to the study and treatment of malocclusions, which may consequent in tooth irregularity, uneven jaw relationships or both.
