Braces are appliances used to bring the teeth and jaws into a harmonious position with the face. It deals with the alignment of teeth and the way teeth bite together. Teeth conditions that require braces include protruding teeth (i.e. “bugs bunny teeth”), buccal canines (i.e. “Dracula teeth”), overcrowding (i.e. crooked teeth), deep bite (i.e. biting onto the gums), cross bite (i.e. a wrong bite which may cause deviation and potential jaw problems), open bite (i.e. inability to bite the teeth together), spacing, bi-maxillary protrusion (i.e. upper and lower teeth sticking out) and jaw problems.
