Braces improve a patient's appearance and smile. Through orthodontic treatment, crooked, misplaced and crowded teeth are corrected.
If not prevented, it can result to tooth decay, gum disease, headaches and chewing problems.
To be successful in putting on braces, dentists need about 1 to 2 hours. The procedure includes cleaning and drying the teeth, applying a special glue to hold the brackets, putting arch wires on the brackets and securing everything with elastic bands.
