Braces, also known as orthodontic appliances are used to align, straighten or guide the teeth to the corrected positions. Braces should be used for people who have the following teeth condition or issue:
- Crooked teeth

There are several types of braces which are:
- Metal braces (Conventional / Self-ligating)
Metal braces consist of brackets and wires that are placed on your teeth. The brackets are joined to each other with a thin arch wire that puts pressure on the teeth that cause them to move slowly into the correct position.
- Ceramic braces
Ceramic braces are the one with clear bracket but the shape and size same as metal braces.
- Lingual braces
Lingual braces are heavy braces which placed behind the teeth.
