Lining up today’s winning braces

Braces are devices used by orthodontists to align crooked, crowded or gapped teeth. They are the foremost choice in correcting mild to severe malocclusions — conditions where teeth of the upper and lower jaws are misaligned leading to bad bites. Examples of bad bites are teeth crowding, overjet or protruding teeth, deep overbite, open bite, teeth spacing, cross bite and under bite or lower jaw protrusion.

The Need For Different Types of Braces

Remarkable strides in dental science and technology have empowered modern orthodontics to offer a wider variety of niche-specific, customized braces. Today’s different types of brackets enable orthodontists to more effectively treat various forms and degrees of malocclusion.

The availability of more dental braces also means more treatment options to address the uniqueness of a patient’s case. No two cases are exactly the same, hence the need for different treatment protocols. Each patient’s dental problem, level of discipline, treatment expectations, time frame commitment and even financial considerations are all factors that warrant specific types of braces and treatment plans.
