Braces

The right braces for you

What is it?
Braces (or bands) are orthodontic devices used to adjust teeth alignment and the bite. Braces consist of brackets and metal bands joined to a flexible wire. Changing and adjusting the wire results in tooth movement.

When to use it?
Most orthodontic problems can be successfully treated using braces. Braces have been the traditional form of treatment used by orthodontists for decades, but today’s streamlined braces come in a variety of models, usually stainless steel or tooth-coloured ceramic.

Key information

  • Orthodontic treatment can be used to reopen the space for teeth replacement treatment
  • These days many orthodontic problems can be corrected with clear aligners
  • Braces require excellent oral hygiene and diet, as ‘decalcification” or early stage decay can occur around the brackets.
  • Braces require a number of adjustment appointments, and treatment usually takes 12-24 months.
