What are Braces?

Braces are an instrument that is made up to correct certain issues with a person’s teeth. They can be made from a few different materials, most notably metal that includes wires. Generally speaking, braces are often prescribed by a dentist or orthodontist as a solution for straightening a patient’s teeth when there are misalignments or crowding in the mouth. However, braces are used for additional orthodontic issues, such as bite issues. Patients of varying ages are given braces to correct these types of problems. Children and teenagers are usually the first age range group of people to be given braces, but many adults receive braces as well for correction of gaps in the teeth, crooked teeth, an overbite, openbite or crossbite.

While braces are most often made from metal and include wiring, there are other options. Braces made from clear plastic have become more and more popular over the years. One of the popular brands is Invisalign, which is frequently provided to teens and adults. Whatever material braces are made from, however, they are always powerful tools that can address all of a patient’s tooth, jaw and alignment issues.

How is the Braces Procedure Performed?

Treatment for a patient that involves braces varies depending on each individual. No two people have the same situation going on with their mouth and teeth. The doctor has to closely examine the individual’s teeth and mouth and determine exactly which type of treatment is appropriate depending on his findings. Certain types of braces are more appropriate than others depending on the severity of the orthodontics of the patient.
