Braces Orthodontics in Huntington Beach

Braces Orthodontics

Orthodontics refers to teeth straightening procedures. Braces are a
popular treatment option when it comes to teeth straightening.

Braces come in different types with the same goal of correcting
malocclusion (misalignment) which include:

  • Overbite

  • Open bite

  • Underbite

  • Deep bite

  • Reverse bite

  • Crooked teeth

  • Jaw problems

  • Overcrowded teeth

  • Misaligned or asymmetrical teeth

The types of braces include:

Metal Braces

Metal braces also known as traditional braces help you straighten
your teeth using braces, wires, and elastic ties. Metal braces offer the
best support in correcting severe crookedness.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces have similarities with metal braces in that they use
wires but they are generally less visible. They are made of a clear,
tooth-colored material that follows the precision of natural teeth.
Ceramic braces are not for everyone, and they may not be the best option
in some cases.

Speed Braces

Speed braces work the same as metal and ceramic braces. They use
wires but the difference is that these braces use spring clips that make
it easy to adjust malocclusion.

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces are the least common type of braces because of the
fact that only a few orthodontists can offer this treatment. Lingual
braces are placed behind teeth and are suitable for adults who want
fixed but discreet braces.

Clear Aligners

Clear aligners such as Invisalign are increasingly becoming popular
because of the convenience they offer. Patients who do not like to have
wires passing across their teeth can use Invisalign clear aligners to
straighten teeth.
