Orthodontic treatment or braces treatment involves correction of mal-aligned teeth using braces. Braces restore a person’s bite, aesthetics, and function of their teeth along with the correct alignment. Dental caries and gum diseases are common in malocclusion, so braces help in preventing these problems too.
WHY DO WE NEED BRACES?
The most important reason for which people go for braces is to improve aesthetics. There are many other problems that can occur due to misaligned teeth but people are not aware of them. Here are a few conditions that need braces
Crowding of teeth
Spacing between teeth
Protruded upper teeth
