Braces are used to correct malocclusions such as underbites, overbites, cross bite and open bites, or crooked teeth and various other flaws of teeth and jaws, whether cosmetic or structural. Traditional braces utilize high-grade stainless steel metal brackets that adhere to your teeth and are connected by wire, using tightening and pressure over time to straighten teeth and align jaw as needed. While they are mainly used on children and teenagers, adults can also use them. Today they are a lot more sleek and more comfortable than ever before.
Although some may opt for a more discreet style of braces, the most common today are still the traditional metal braces. The fun part about braces is that they have many parts including bands that you can personalize with colors. You can change the elastic bands every 4-6 weeks when you visit your Orthodontist. Common colors include: red, blue, green, yellow, purple, pink, black, gray, and white. Although you must check with your Orthodontist to make sure these colors are available. Adding your school’s colors to your braces can be a fun way to make your visits to the Orthodontist a conversation piece with your friends.
