This traditional braces
treatment method consists of attaching metal brackets
to the outer surface of each tooth. For those who prefer a more discreet look, clear synthetic and tooth-colored ceramic
options are available as well. A wire is inserted into the brackets to move the teeth into the desired position. Once treatment is complete, patients often wear an orthodontic device known as a retainer
to help keep the teeth in their new position while the surrounding bone forms to maintain the position of the teeth.
