Orthodontic treatment or braces can help improve appearance, function and health of teeth and jaws. Orthodontic treatment involves use of corrective appliances, including braces, plates, headgear and clear aligners. These appliances work by generating gentle forces on teeth and aligning them to desired angle, correcting your bite and jaw function.
