Getting Dental Braces

Dental Braces is an orthodontic treatment composed of brackets that adhere to the facial (frontal) surfaces of the teeth. Wires that are inserted into the slots of the brackets and elastics that hold the wires in places.

These materials individually do not serve any function. But together they can move teeth in a series of bone breaking and building. This will move teeth to its proper position and improve the quality of your smile.

There are now different types of materials used in orthodontics. In terms of color, you can choose to go for the more traditional metal, or you can go for more esthetic options such as ceramic or plastic.

Straightened Teeth

Typically, an orthodontic treatment can go for a few months to a few years, depending on the severity of the case. During a patient’s first visit to the dentist, the case will be discussed. Also,  an appropriate treatment plan is going to be given based on the diagnostic aids presented.
