What kind of orthodontic braces exist?
These are the most popular orthodontic braces. They are made of supports with metal arches which pressure the teeth in order to reposition them.
These are used to alter the shape of the dental arch.
These are removable or fixed braces, which can be used to correct the problems of the jaw bones.
Removable functional braces are usually used during the night and some hours of the day. Among their advantages we list the fact that they can be easily cleaned and that they can be easily taken off during meals.
