Traditional braces have been a staple of orthodontic treatment for decades, effectively straightening teeth using brackets, wires, and elastic bands.
- Components of Braces :
Braces consist of metal or ceramic brackets bonded to the teeth, connected by archwires and secured with elastic bands.
These components work together to apply gentle pressure and gradually shift the teeth into alignment.
- Types of Braces :
Patients can choose from various types of braces, including metal braces, ceramic braces (which blend in with the teeth), lingual braces (placed on the back of the teeth), and self-ligating braces (which require fewer adjustments).
