What are braces?

Braces are one of the most common ways to straighten your teeth and gain a smile that is healthier and more attractive. Traditional braces work through a system of brackets, wires, and bands. The brackets are attached to the front of the teeth and are connected to each other by the wire. As the braces are adjusted over time, your teeth are gradually guided to their ideal positions in your smile. Thanks to advances in dental materials, techniques, and technology, wearing braces is now more comfortable, discreet, and effective than ever before. Braces in Dearborn, Michigan, may be a good choice for patients of all ages, from children and teenagers to adults and seniors.

Braces can be used to correct teeth that are misaligned, gapped, or crowded. Furthermore, braces can effectively correct several types of problems with the bite, such as an open bite, overbite, crossbite, or underbite.
