Dental Braces

Dental braces are orthodontic devices that align and straighten teeth, as well as help position them in relation to a person's bite, with the goal of improving dental health. Braces can also close gaps. They are frequently used to repair underbite, malocclusions, overbites, open bites, deep bites, cross bites, crooked teeth, and a variety of other dental and jaw abnormalities.

Metal Braces

Traditional braces are constructed of metal and are one of the most tried and true ways for aligning and straightening teeth. It was the first therapy for straightening teeth and adjusting bite alignment, and it is still in use today. The braces are made of high-quality materials such as stainless steel or titanium alloys, which are corrosion-resistant and safe to wear in the mouth for lengthy periods of time.

Lingual Braces - InBrace

Brackets, bands, and an archwire are used in lingual braces to provide tension to the teeth and gradually shift them into the right position. They are positioned on the back of the teeth (behind the teeth, hidden), tongue-facing. This makes them almost unnoticeable, which is one of the key reasons for their attractiveness. They're perfect for anyone who plays a wind instrument or participates in sports. Because this treatment necessitates more education and expertise, not all orthodontists provide it.

Clear Braces

The operation of clear bracket braces is identical to that of standard wire braces. The archwire, which runs along the teeth in the jaw, is the most important component. The corrective action of braces is similar to that of traditional wire braces. The wires, even in ceramic braces, must be metal in order to pull the teeth into the proper position, but they can be manufactured to match the color of the teeth, frosted, or silver. Brackets are glued to the teeth directly or with orthodontic bands, which are held in place by a wire and tooth-colored elastic bands.
