Dental braces feature brackets that tend to run along a wire. An orthodontist is responsible for affixing the dental braces onto the teeth. The wire and brackets that form part of the braces arepressed against the patient’s teeth. This supports slight movements that can help in properly aligning and straightening the teeth.
Dental braces can correct even the most complicated issues in aligning the teeth. The braces are not only aesthetically pleasing, but functional as well. These are beneficial in closing gaps and correcting crooked teeth. Traditional Braces are used to treat conditions for adolescents and adults.
Traditional Metal Braces
Traditional Metal Braces are probably what you think of when you picture someone wearing braces: small metal brackets bonded to the front of the teeth. A thin wire runs through the brackets and is attached on either end to metal bands that go around a back molar.
Instead of highly noticeable metal brackets, you can have clear ones made of ceramic. They are hardly visible, except for the thin wire running through.
