Orthodontic treatment is a way of straightening or moving teeth, to improve the appearance of the teeth and how they work. It can also help to look after the long-term health of your teeth, gums and jaw joints, by spreading the biting pressure over all your teeth
ORTHODONTIC treatment can be carried out by REMOVABLE and FIXED APPLIANCES, although fixed appliances have more predictable results and good patient compliance.
Braces fixed on the inner side of the teeth ie, towards the tongue or palate are known as lingual braces.
There is another modality of treatment used for mild crowding and small space closures called the CLEAR ALIGNERS OR THE INVISALIGN which is a computer guided treatment for correction of the malaligned teeth
