How does the treatment work?
Orthodontic treatment involves wearing a brace (appliance). There are two main types of braces, removable and fixed. Different combinations of braces may be used to treat individual cases. Depending on the type of appliance it will move your teeth into position, guide the way your jaw grows, or even widen your jaw to make room for crowded teeth. Occasionally, it might be necessary to extract some teeth if your mouth is very crowded.
