|Dental braces, also known as orthodontic brackets, are common among teenagers and even adults. They can be used to adjust crooked teeth, misaligned upper and lower jaw, and uneven bites, including overbites and underbites. While most dentists can provide braces if requested, a specialist, known as an orthodontist, is usually more qualified to decide which braces are the best in a particular situation. There are many types of braces now available, including ones made of metal, ceramic, and gold, as well as those that go inside the teeth or which are nearly invisible.
Metal dental braces are the oldest type. They've been in use for decades and are made of stainless steel. While they are still expensive, they are still considered the cheapest of all options. Metal braces can stain the surface of the teeth, which is why many people shy away from them in the first place.
