Fixed orthodontic appliances, more commonly known as 'braces' are devices used to correct the alignment of teeth and discrepancies of the bite. Traditionally they consist of brackets, wires and bands made from stainless steel.The brackets are attached to the teeth using dental adhesive and remain on the teeth for the duration of treatment. A wire is attached to the brackets, providing the necessary continuous force to move the teeth. Additionally, elastic bands, headgear and bite jumping springs may be used to facilitate the correction of the bite.

Labial (outside)
There are 2 types of labial braces – metal and ceramic. Metal braces are usually used in teenage patients. Ceramic braces are preferred by adult patients as they blend in with the dentition and are much less conspicuous.

Lingual (inside)
These braces are bonded on the inner surfaces of the teeth. Lingual orthodontics is more preferable than the labial orthodontics from a view point of maintenance of patients' appearances. However they can be more costly and adjustment appointments may take longer than conventional braces.
