Worn today by many adults, as well as kids and teens, braces provide an opportunity to correct malocclusion and straighten crooked teeth by applying the correct pressures to your teeth and jaws. They are generally divided into two categories: fixed and removable. Both types work by placing pressure on the teeth and jaws and moving them into positions defined by your dental practitioner. Just how do braces work and how can they improve your self-confidence when you smile? Let’s take a closer look.

Wearing braces is a dental investment in your oral health that will straighten your teeth and make you smile again. In addition to making you look more attractive and boosting your confidence, straighter teeth are also much easier to clean and care for. This means you will be less likely to develop complications such as decay and the resultant toothaches as you grow older.
