Dental braces is an orthodontic treatment used to straighten and align crooked teeth. Crooked teeth can cause decay and gum problems.


Severe misalignment of teeth can also cause difficulties in speaking and eating. Dental braces typically take 1.5 to 2 years for completion and patients can choose between metal or ceramic braces. Both types are as efficient with ceramic braces being more subtle in appearance due to the colour of the brackets used.
