Conventional braces have been around for many years. While the most common reason people get braces is that their teeth are misaligned or crooked, your bite is another reason to consider braces. Many people think that braces are something for teenagers only; however, plenty of adults get braces as well.

Orthodontic treatment via braces is achieved using metal/ceramic (clear) brackets bonded to teeth. These brackets are activated through various metal wires that move teeth into their ideal positions.

One of the most important things you need to consider with braces is the health of your gums and jaw bones. While a straight smile is lovely, placing braces on teeth surrounded by unhealthy gums and bones can cause serious complications.
