Labial braces

Brackets are applied using composite to the outside/labial side of the teeth. For braces behind or palatal side of the teeth look under "lingual braces".

 

Braces allow the correction of the alignment of the teeth.

 

By using intermaxillary elastics in the presence of growth the relationship between the jaws can be modified.

Before treatment:

There are two types of brackets:

Metallic : we use "Speed" brackets.
