This refers to orthodontic treatment which is performed to correct a dental irregularity such as malocclusion (bad bite), overcrowded teeth or a jaw disorder such as TMJ. These and other orthodontic problems are treated with braces. The most common type of brace used is the standard metal and wire brace.
The idea behind a brace is to reposition teeth which have moved out of place; are crooked or protruding; have unsightly gaps between them or are crowding out other teeth. Orthodontic treatment for children is discussed separately in the braces for children section. Adults can benefit from wearing a brace which corrects any misalignment, improves the appearance of the teeth and acts as a boost to one’s confidence and self-esteem. Many people assume that orthodontic treatment such as a brace is only for children but there are recognisable benefits for adults as well.
DMH Dental Surgery is located at Damai, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.
