Dental braces are devices used in orthodontics that align and straighten teeth and help position them with regard to a person's bite, while also aiming to improve dental health. Braces also fix gaps.
Types of Braces • Metal braces These are the metal brackets and wires that most people picture when they hear the word "braces." • Ceramic braces are the same size and shape as metal braces, except that they have tooth-colored or clear brackets that blend in to teeth. • Lingual braces are the same as traditional metal braces, except that the brackets and wires are placed on the inside of teeth. • Invisalign consists of a series of 18 to 30 custom-made, mouth guard-like clear plastic aligners.
