What are braces
Braces are an orthodontic device that are used to ‘hold-on-to’ and move the teeth.
Braces allow the position of the teeth to be changed, not only to correcting abnormalities but also to improve aesthetic appearance and for improved ability in maintaining good oral health.
Braces can be used for both cosmetic and structural concerns.
Metal and ceramic Braces
Ceramic braces use the same method as metal braces except the brackets used are ceramic. They are often preferred over metal braces due to the pale colour. The ceramic colour means that the brackets are much less noticeable than the metal brackets.
