What are braces?
Braces are meant to be used for improving the positions of the teeth and occlusions. Metal braces are the most popular type, as they are strong and durable as well as less costly. Ceramic braces offer a more subtle alternative.
The arch in the braces forces the teeth into the desired position. The fixation mechanism of the braces is categorised as normal and self-regulating.
The choice of braces depends on the patient’s problem. More detailed recommendations will be presented by the orthodontist at the time of compiling a treatment plan.
