What is Orthodontics Braces?

Orthodontic braces are a specialized dental treatment designed to correct misaligned teeth and bite issues, resulting in a straighter and more aesthetically pleasing smile. Braces consist of brackets, wires, and other components that apply gentle pressure to gradually move teeth into their proper positions over time. This treatment is commonly used to address various orthodontic concerns, including crooked teeth, crowded teeth, gaps between teeth, overbites, underbites, and crossbites. Orthodontic braces are suitable for patients of all ages and can significantly improve both the appearance and function of the teeth and jaws. At Legacy Dental Team, our experienced orthodontists offer personalized braces treatment plans tailored to each patient’s unique dental needs, helping them achieve a beautifully aligned smile and optimal oral health.

Types Of Braces


Traditional braces consist of smaller, less conspicuous metal brackets and wires, contrasting with the noticeable appearance of past iterations. Innovative heat-activated archwires now expedite tooth movement with reduced discomfort, leveraging your body’s natural heat for efficient treatment.


Ceramic braces resemble traditional metal braces in size and shape but feature tooth-colored or clear brackets that seamlessly blend with teeth, offering a discreet orthodontic option. Some ceramic braces incorporate tooth-colored wires for further inconspicuousness, ensuring a subtler appearance during treatment.


Invisalign involves a set of 18 to 30 custom-made clear plastic aligners, akin to mouth guard-like devices. These aligners are removable and replaced every two weeks, offering a discreet and flexible orthodontic solution.
