Dental braces are the familiar wire-based appliances that orthodontists use to correct crowded and misaligned teeth or jaws. Many people who need dental braces get them during their early adolescent years. But adults can get dental braces, too.
The goal of dental braces is to properly align your teeth and jaws and produce an even bite.
Modern materials and technologies make the experience of having dental braces much more comfortable and enjoyable than in the past.
