Dental braces (also known as orthodontic braces, or braces) are devices used in orthodontics that align and straighten teeth and help to position them with regard to a person’s bite, while also working to improve dental health. They are often used to correct underbites, as well asmalocclusions, overbites, cross bites, open bites, deep bites, crooked teeth, and various other flaws of the teeth and jaw. Braces can be either cosmetic or structural. Dental braces are often used in conjunction with other orthodontic appliances to help widen the palate or jaws and to otherwise assist in shaping the teeth and jaws.
Orthodontics is the part of dentistry that specializes in the diagnosis, interception and treatment of dental and facial abnormalities often called malocclusions. The practice of this discipline requires great professional skills in order to properly develop the planning, fabrication, installation and control of dental and orthopedic devices necessary for the alignment of the teeth, jaws and soft tissues that contribute to dentofacial harmony.
