Devices such as fixed or removable braces can be used to straighten your teeth and to return your jaw to its correct position.
Orthodontic procedures are designed to treat dental and facial irregularities. Devices such as removable braces are used in order to straighten your teeth and to return your jaw to its correct position. Sometimes you will need additional measures, such as wearing specialist headgear when sleeping, and teeth may need to be removed during this treatment.
There are different systems available if you are looking to have your teeth straightened depending on whether you would like a fixed brace or removable brace and each one will follow a slightly different process, please see the treatment options below:
