Dental braces (also known as braces, orthodontic brackets and wires) are devices used in orthodontics that align and straighten teeth in order to improve a person’s bite and tooth position, while also working to improve overall dental health. They are often used to correct underbites, as well as malocclusions, overbites, open bites, deep bites, cross bites, crooked teeth, and various other flaws of the teeth and jaw. Braces can be either cosmetic or functional. Dental braces are often used in conjunction with other orthodontic appliances to help widen the palate or jaws in order to achieve final optimum result and dental health.
Clear aligners have become more and more popular in the last years due to the technological advances in dentistry. Lots of orthodontic movements that weren't possible in the past, can now be accomplished with clear aligners.
You could be a child, or an adult that reached that point in life when orthodontic treatment becomes important and affordable or you might be just a patient in need of prosthetic treatment (bridges, implants, partial dentures) and pre-alignment of your teeth would just improve the outcome and long term prognosis of such treatment.
