Malocclusion is one of the biggest and most common oral issues that people face. It affects the lives of millions of Americans belonging to all age groups, and the number of individuals seeking orthodontic treatment is on the rise. New and innovative orthodontic solutions are now available, but braces remain the most commonly used appliances.
Dental braces are made either entirely from stainless steel or a combination of metal and ceramic/dental-grade clear plastic. A bracket will be bonded to each tooth with the help of dental adhesives, and wires will be run through them. The ends of the wires will be fastened to a stable support, which will allow us to tighten or loosen them to alter the pressure applied to the teeth. When transparent or tooth-colored brackets are used instead of metal brackets, they stay under disguise and are less visible against the teeth, making them more aesthetically pleasing.
