Braces are provided for Orthodontic treatment. Orthodontics treats malocclusion, a condition in which the teeth are crooked in relation to one another. This results in an improper bite, difficulty in chewing, speech problems and an unpleasant appearance. The aim of orthodontic treatment is to restore oral health by balancing tooth positions and resulting in a correct bite that helps in chewing and speech and improves looks.

An orthodontist can provide treatment to achieve the following :

Closing wide gaps between the teeth

Aligning the tips of the teeth

Straightening crooked teeth

Improving speech or chewing ability

Boosting the long-term health of gums and teeth

Preventing long-term excessive wear of the teeth

Treating an improper bite

In order to achieve these results our orthodontist may use fixed orthodontic devices (braces, space maintainers, expanders etc.) or removable orthodontic devices (headgears, lip bumpers, aligners, retainers etc.) based on each case. Irrespective of the treatment device used or the treatment plan, follow your dentist's instructions and oral hygiene guidelines to ensure the best results.
