Orthodontics and how it works
Orthodontics (from Greek orthos “straight or proper”; and odous “tooth”) is the specialised branch of dentistry, dealing broadly with improving the positions of the teeth and jaw bones.
The aim of Orthodontics is to produce better functioning teeth and more attractive smiles. For comprehensive orthodontic treatment, most commonly, metal wires are inserted into orthodontic brackets, which can be made from stainless steel or a more aesthetic ceramic material.
The wires interact with the brackets to move teeth into the desired positions.
Invisalign Type Orthodontics
Other methods may include invisalign type Orthodontics. Invisalign type Orthodontics consists of clear plastic aligners that allow you to realign your teeth without others seeing how your teeth are moving.
