Dental braces are accessory used in orthodontics that regulates and straighten teeth and help to adjust them with regard to a person’s bite, while also functioning to enhance dental health. Dental Braces are appliances used to perfect improper positioning of teeth. These are circumstances that can also be called malocclusion between the jaw and teeth. By deliberately applying pressure, with the help of arch wires, braces adjust the positioning of teeth to correct conditions such as misalignment, improper bite and teeth crowding.A dentist usually prescribes dental braces to enhance a patient’s “orofacial” appearance. Through orthodontic treatment, issues like crooked or crowded teeth, overbites, and underbites, incorrect jaw position and disorders of the jaw joints are corrected. If left untreated, these complications can result in tooth decay, gum disease, headaches, and earaches, as well as speaking, biting or chewing problems.
