Orthodontic braces are vital in correcting malocclusions and teeth misalignment, catering to younger and growing adult populations seeking dental corrections. The technology behind braces ensures tailored, predictable outcomes, aligning teeth for both functional and aesthetic enhancements.

Alignment Issues Braces Address:

  • Underbite: Where the lower jaw extends beyond the upper jaw.
  • Overbite: The upper jaw protrudes beyond the lower jaw.
  • Overcrowding: A lack of space in the dental arches leads to twisted or misaligned teeth.
  • Crossbite: Upper teeth incorrectly align inside or outside the lower teeth counterparts.

Benefits of Braces:

  • Improved Oral Hygiene: Aligning teeth eliminates hard-to-reach areas, reducing the risk of oral bacterial growth.
  • Enhanced Digestion: Correcting bite misalignment facilitates proper chewing, aiding in digestion.
  • Boosted Confidence: Aligned teeth foster a positive self-image, encouraging smiles in all settings.

Types of Braces:

Braces fall into two main categories: fixed and removable appliances.

  • Fixed Braces: Utilized for severe malocclusions or when quick treatment is necessary, fixed braces involve brackets bonded to teeth connected by archwires. Regular adjustments apply consistent pressure to realign teeth.
  • Removable Braces: Suited for less severe cases or where fixed braces are impractical, options like Invisalign® offer a discreet, flexible treatment alternative. These clear trays are favored for their convenience and minimal impact on daily routines.

Orthodontic braces provide a comprehensive solution to various dental issues, enhancing oral health and aesthetics through advanced treatment options.
