Braces for both functional as well as cosmetic improvement
Straightening your teeth
Braces usually consist of “brackets” that are bonded to the teeth and a metal wire that is inserted into the brackets. The metal wires are “tightened” and work together with the brackets to move teeth into the desired positions. There are other components that are also used in conjunction with braces to move teeth, jaw, and bone such as headgear and expansion devices. While orthodontics work on teeth movement, it sometimes involves working with one’s facial bone growth to achieve favourable jaw dimensions and relationship.
