Braces effectively solve incorrect occlusion, too large distances between the teeth or vice versa – the crowding of the units and other problems of orthodontic field. These items are fixed type designs and move teeth in different directions and in any plane. Initially, braces affect the dentition with more force, and as leveling, the load gradually decreases.
Design features braces
The main part of braces is a bracket, which is attached to the tooth. Also in the design includes a wire arc, putting pressure on the bracket. Braces are in the oral cavity during the entire period of defect correction. The brackets themselves are attached to the tooth with special glue. The pressure vector can be adjusted, thereby forming the desired variant of occlusion in accordance with the individual characteristics.
Advantages of braces

Types of braces
There are two types of braces. The vestibular ones are mounted on the outer part of the dentition, while the lingual (‘lingua’ means “tongue” in Latin) are installed in the inner part of the oral cavity. As for the material, braces are made of metal. This model is noticeable in the mouth, so many patients prefer ceramics and plastics. External sapphire braces are made of artificial sapphire crystals. Such systems are not visible, and they are easier to maintain. Orthodontists offer bright colored braces for children.
