Dental braces are wire-based appliances that orthodontists use to correct crowded and misaligned teeth or jaws. Many people who need dental braces get them during their early teenage years, but adults also can benefit from wearing braces. The goal of dental braces is to properly align your teeth and jaws to produce an even bite and pleasing smile.
Why it’s done
Dental braces offer corrective treatment for:
- Overcrowded or crooked teeth
- Too much space between teeth
- Upper front teeth that overlap the lower teeth too much — either vertically (overbite) or horizontally (overjet)
- Upper front teeth that bite behind the lower ones (underbite)
- Other jaw misalignment problems that cause an uneven bite

They are more comfortable, better looking and deliver quicker results. The clear Damon Brackets are an esthetic option being virtually invisible except for the visible wire which is metal.
These are the traditional metal brackets with the difference in their position. These are placed on the inside of the teeth and hence are virtually invisible. The esthetic advantage makes them more popular among the adults.It is advised in patients who do not have excessive bite problems and have sufficient teeth height to allow its placement.
This is the traditional orthodontic treatment option and is the most widely accepted. These are made of stainless steel and at times used in combination with titanium. It involves the placement of metallic brackets on the facial and buccal surface of your teeth. These brackets are then connected by a wire which is held in place by using elastics.
This is an esthetic substitute to the traditional brackets for conscious patients. These include tooth colored brackets placed on the facial or buccal surface of the tooth. These are considered to allow quicker movements when compared to aligners.
