When your teeth need to be straightened, the most effective option is braces. Traditional metal braces, the most common option, are held together with wire and bands. At each visit, the wire is changed and adjusted, which slowly brings the teeth into their proper position.
Depending on the amount of work that needs to be done, you may need braces for only a few months to a few years. But today's braces are smaller, lighter and more comfortable than those used in the past. They also come in bright colours or clear styles to fit any personality.
