Orthodontic treatment with metal braces



Orthodontic treatment is the science where the position and shape of the teeth is altered so as to make the teeth functionally and visibly more appropriate.
This type of treatment involves putting of small metallic brackets on the inner or outer surface of the teeth and then putting a wire through the brackets. This wire is held on with the help of little rubber bands, you can choose the color of the little bands and experiment with a variety of colors ranging from the traditional transparent ones or ones of neon colors.
The wire is then tightened approximately every month until the teeth reach the desired position.
The treatment once started cannot be stopped midway if the desired results want to be achieved.
