REASONS FOR BRACES
The main reason patients want braces is cosmetic. Their teeth are crooked or misaligned and they wish to change their appearance.
However there are other reasons as well like having too much of an "overbite" (we call this large over jet or class 2) or having an "underbite" (negative over jet or class 3).
There may be other problems such as having a "bad bite" or teeth do not fit together properly.
Also not being able to chew properly or having jaw joint problems may be improved by braces. Having a narrow upper palate or jaw size discrepancy may be another reason eg. Upper/lower jaw too large or small can be another reason.
TYPES OF BRACES
Orthodontics typically involves the use of braces for aligning teeth. Braces consist of brackets that are bonded to the teeth, and arch wires that are threaded through the brackets. The arch wires act as a track and guide each tooth to its proper position. There are several types of orthodontic braces available to consumers, including the more traditional metal braces, ceramic "tooth-colored" braces, and clear plastic braces.
These are the bread and butter of the orthodontic world. They are used to treat a lot of cases and work very well, getting the job done!
