What is a Orthodontic Treatments?
It is the dental speciality and practice of preventing and correcting irregularities of the teeth,as by the use of braces. Orthodontic appliances can be made of metal, ceramic, or plastic. They may be removable or they may be brackets temporarily bonded to the teeth. By placing a constant, gentle force in a carefully controlled direction, braces slowly move teeth to a corrected position. This is a great time to wear braces! Gone are the days when a metal band with a bracket was placed around each tooth.
Types of braces are as follows :
- Metal Braces

- Lingual Braces
