Orthodontic treatments can help treat the misalignment of the teeth. Braces are one of the traditional methods of treating orthodontic problems. With braces, reasonable force is applied to the specific teeth to move them in a particular direction and settle in the appropriate position. Some of the common types of braces used are metallic braces, Invisalign braces, ceramic braces, and lingual braces.
What Is Orthodontic Treatment?
Orthodontic treatments are used to correct various conditions wherein the teeth are not positioned correctly, are protruding, crowded, or have gaps in between. These treatments gradually shift the natural teeth to their correct positions with the help of force applied by orthodontic wires or aligners.
Besides aligning the teeth, orthodontic treatment helps to restore a person’s bite, the function of their teeth, and the teeth’s aesthetics. They play a crucial role in preventing dental conditions like cavities and gum diseases that commonly occur in misalignments.
