Orthodontics is the study and treatment of malocclusions (improper bites) because of tooth irregularity, disproportionate jaw relationships or both. Metal wires and brackets are used to correct crowded teeth, protruding teeth, gaps, deep bites, cross bites, overbites. This treatment in not just cosmetic but also improves the health of the jaw bones and facial muscles.

Different types of braces:
1. Metal braces
2. Lingual braces.
3. Ceramic braces
4. Invisible aligners

Metal braces are regular braces. They are the most economical orthodontic option. Children can opt for coloured florescent elastic bands.

Ceramic braces: They are tooth coloured braces and hence esthetic. As the treatment last for 1-1 ½ years many patients opt for ceramic braces.

Lingual braces: In this type brackets are put on the inner surface of the teeth. The wires are placed on the inside of the teeth which makes them invisible from outside. These braces are ideal choice for adults who are concerned about their cosmetic appeal during orthodontic treatment.
