Orthodontics is a dentistry where works are provided to prevent or correct misaligned teeth and jaws, which are called malocclusions or faulty occlusions.
A person may seek the services of a dentist for cosmetic reasons as well as health reasons. Beside the insecurity and low self esteem that dental irregularities may cause, they can also affect a person’s ability to chew and speak. Severely misaligned teeth and jaws can cause snoring, sleep apnea and other breathing problems.

How Do They Work?
Metal braces are made of high-grade stainless steel and consist of brackets and arch wires. The arch wire is what runs across the teeth. Regular dental visits check and tighten them, which is what slowly aligns the teeth. This process can take from 3 months to 2 years.
