Dental Braces are a device used in orthodontics to align teeth and correct a person’s bite. There are many types of malocclusion such as under bites, over bites, cross bites and open bites, or crooked teeth. While braces are mainly used on children and teenagers, they can be used on adults as well. Teeth also have an important role in physical health. Without treatment, orthodontic problems can lead to tooth decay, gum (periodontal) disease, bone loss, speech impairment, unnecessary tooth loss, and other dental problems. Braces utilize gentle, constant pressure to move teeth into their proper positions slowly, over time. Since they are a fixed appliance they work around the clock, including during sleep. The result is a beautiful, healthy, sensational smile and an improved self-image.
